The Lyrics

When you get the shit kicked outta you at a bar, what's the reasonable, logical response? Make yourself a suit of armour, of course!
Last night, a little asshole smashed my head through the floor
Last night, a little douchebag threw my ass out the door
He said "See ya, buddy, next time, you'd better be tough"
Well, I am a trier, but also not dumb, guess what?

Upped my defense power a bit more, more, more
Made a metal shell for my core, core, core, ow!
Took me sev'ral hours, mate, four, four, four
Watch my metal shell roar, roar, roar
Roar, roar, roar

Just try to take me, use both fists, might bet
On how much they'll get broken, must hurt like heck
I thought you'd greet a challenge like me, mate
More graciously, pray tell, how did I cheat here, bud?

Just because I tower a bit more, more, more
Made a metal shell for my core, core, core, ow!
Got more defense power, mate, more, more, more
Watch my metal shell roar, roar, roar

You did put me on the defensive
To that end, I go just a little obsessive
Some would learn to fight, I have my own flair
I suited up, suited up, but you say it's not fair?
Ow! Ow!

My armour will cause you pain
Don't have to aim at you
Just have to watch you whale, mate
And give yourself a bruise
It's best to give up soon, mate
The blame for the hurt's on you
I'm standin' tall, I've not budged, mate
Just-a, just-a, just-a, a-just-a because you first hurt me, you suck

I was overpowered, but no more, more, more
Made a metal shell for my core, core, core, ow!
Try to toss me out that door, door, door
Watch my metal shell scream a roar, roar, roar
Roar, roar, roar

Ooh yeah-eah, little buddy
Thrown no more
Roar, roar, roar, roar, roar
Ooh yeah-eah, little douchebag
Thrown no more
Roar, roar, roar, roar, roar

This would be a great parody for a punk band to sing!
