Alternate verses from The Strokes' "Ize of the World"

I came up with these in a flurry while listening to The Strokes' "Ize of the World," a song off their newest album, First Impressions of Earth. It's a sort-of clever play on words on the "eyes of the world," obviously. I didn't need to say that. Anyway, the choruses are comprised of culturally-relevant current statements that end in "-ize" (I cheated and used "-ise" too). And the song has a trick ending, which I duplicated here. You won't get any of this if you haven't heard the song. Not that there's anything to get; this is pointless.
