We're gonna score one more than you!

Original person suggesting: dada3345

New lyrics with old song for Sporting KC fans:

Soccer fans chanting 'Vindaloo' version:

Chant Origins: From Wikipedia:
It was released as a single in 1998 and recorded for the 1998 FIFA World Cup. The song was originally written as a parody of football chants, but was adopted as one in its own right and became a cult classic. Much of the song consists of the phrase "nah nah nah" and the word "vindaloo" repeated over and over by a mixed group, occasionally interspersed with lines such as "And we all like vindaloo" and "We're England; we're gonna score one more than you".

The song's name comes from the vindaloo, a type of very spicy Goan curry. It is often eaten by football supporters in the United Kingdom (and other nations) accompanied by large quantities of lager, after matches or as part of a "lads' night out".
Heard at LIVESTRONG Sporting Park: Section 102 June, July, August 2011, reportedly tried in the Cauldron also in 2011.  Became a standard in mid to late 2012.
Heard from other MLS supporters groups: Unknown

Why it works: original song already popular soccer chant, mild taunting of opposition, hard consonants (sound better from a large crowd), lyrics changed to local theme, short easy to memorize, could be picked up just after being heard at a game
Why it might not: Barbecue may be seen as too silly, original not well known by average SKC fan
