The Lyrics

Bah, who needs to block in vidja games when your attack stats through the roof?
I don't fear them, they're barely a boss
They will die from my big-ass knife
I'll defeat them in six seconds
Secret revealed? Okay, it's no big deal

I can stab them in the brain
Cause the defense game? I refrain
I skimp on shields

Lots of weapons that I can use
But for defense? Jack shit
Got no use for it when my damage
Is in the stratosphere, all my foes should fear

Couple swings, they're in their grave
I won't block today, that's just lame
I skimp on shields
You can tell me that I'm crazed
But I just don't play the same
I skimp on shields

They won't harm me
'Fore they die
I'm too painful
They won't survive

I don't fear them, from mooks to end boss (I don't fear them)
Cause they'll die, achievements are mine
I'll defeat them in two seconds (I'll defeat them)
Why do I feel a rumble now? Big deal

So focused on mashin' "A"
They whacked my dumb face, end of game
I skimped on shields
A minor setback, okay
I'll still beat this boss my way
Still skimp on shields
Still skimp on shields
Oh, still skimp on shields

I'd say that this is what kept getting me killed in Hyrule Warriors, but that was more "the game not letting me block mid-enemy-combo". Oh, and my never-hitting-the-dash-button...-ness.

Whew, for a moment there I thought you were going to talk about incontinence shields...instead, its a bit of gamer geek braggadocio.

Hence why the key is to attack first, works for Pokemon depending on how dedicated one can be on EV training.
