The Lyrics

Behold, crime is afoot! Time for an instant growth spurt!

Puff up so threats will go
It's how my body goes
I can't throw a punch or land a kick
Just puff up so threats will go
They'll freak out 'cause I'll be so big
Darken their wardrobe and then split

It's not so easily undone, you see
Not the Hulk, can't tune out rage for peace
Bodysuit contains the genitals
But the rest is far from fixable

Robbers stealin'? They're not takin' shit
Once they're seein' how I'm crazy big
Down I'm leanin' 'til they take a hint
Puff up so threats will go, hey!

Puff up so threats will go
As a superhero
You'd think that I'd have much more this
Nope, puff up so threats will go
Might wonder what counts as a threat
And then "Whoops! False alarm!" thoughts next

No Spider-Sense for me, I have to see
A crime that won't need fight skills, you see
Sucks that some things are ignorable
Because it can sound real horrible

Monsters breathin' acid? Leavin' it
Car chase? Easy intercedin' bit
Robbers stealin', I can deal with it
Puff up so threats will go, hey!

No buffs
Just big, hey!


Puff up so threats will go
It works, I told you so
Learn to fight real soon, for now, just this
Just puff up so threats will go, hey!

This was originally gonna be about that thing that cats do, then it somehow became a superhero thing. Dunno how that happened, TBH.
