The Lyrics

Fun fact: superhero costumes were originally based on circus outfits! Yikes!
Guy superheroes look like freaks
Wearing tights out in the streets
Villains wear Nylon, Leather, Rubber
Even jackets for undercover!

Heros hate spandex!
Heros hate spandex!

Form-fitting costumes are real dumb
Show off your package AND your bum
Batman's stuff is so much cooler
Betcha he gets his stuff custom-ordered!

Heros hate spandex!
Heros hate spandex!

Supergirl underneath, there's nothing better
She wears a skirt in all kinds of weather
Wonder Woman is also fine
Costume skintight, but we don't mind!

But male superheroes OTOH

Heros hate spandex!
Heros hate spandex!
Heros hate spandex!
Heros hate spandex!

Think of the ball sweat...

I've always wondered how Superman's spandex outfit and his cape become bulletproof. Does anyone remember a scene where bullets bounce off his chest, but he ducks when a gun is thrown at him?
