Actually not even pure "We Will Rock You" – a lot of in-class raps with the chorus as "Gotta be, gotta be [subject x] [follow up words]" thanks to THIS AD:
Gotta beGotta bePlanet Mars[planet of war]

We had to do one about fireworks when I was about 9. I remember the line 'keep the pets in momma' being rejected by my group.

Somewhere out there is a cassette tape of me "freestyling" in college as part of a truth-or-dare game. I remember the beginning of my rap because my housemates insisted on listening to it a lot of times:
(Intro): Underground bassline/underground mic check/underground beatbox/undergrond (2x)(verse): "You know my rhyme is so underground/that you can't find it anywhere in town/it's underground/you'd have to look under the ground if you wanted to find it/cause it's not above ground/it's under the ground/under the sky/because of course, the sky is above the ground"

RATM/Hiphoprisy-inspired political raps about the LA riots, media coverage of the Gulf War and the evils of television. Very "of their time". Very middle-class, white and English too. I have them on tape but I'm scared to play them.

In middle school I came up with a rap called n*gga n*gga n*gga bitch bitch bitch, which was just those lines repeated over and over with a mothafucka thrown in here or there. I performed it at the local McDonalds, and as luck would have it, the only black guy in town was there. My friends laughed their asses off, and the guy came up and said he thought it was funny while I did my best to not wet myself. I wonder that guy was inspired to write this:

Somewhere there exists a tape of our rap trio from junior high, featuring two friends and I reciting terrible raps over remixes* of "Batdance". iirc, our trio was Jam-Master Jon, MC Mark, and E-Crazy.
* - said "remixes" were us playing the "Batdance" cassingle in one boombox while fucking around with two Casio keyboards and recording it all in a second boombox
