The Lyrics

When super-invulnerability meets highly-curious villainy, what happens?
I'll throw a rock right at your face, it's just the first of many tests (big tests)
Heard you're solid as a tank, let's see who really comes out the best (the best)
Once the rocks are gone, I'll hit you with larger boulders, by the way
Does resistance come with no pain? You shrug, some more things we'll learn today
If you're as tough as ev'ryone says you are
Then I'll take back all that I said about that bein' fluff PR
Gimme just a sec to set this up, I've got lots of chutes
'Cause there's a lot of things I plan to hurl a ton of at you

Oh, I'd be a slurry, could not withstand
All those bank vaults, dude, how are you not mad?
Is it just that borin' to shrug off ten cars?
Normal folks would get worn down and get buried now, but for you it's just a start
I guess I'd better ramp it up with these tests (ooh-ooh-ooh)
I've tried to bludgeon, now let's pierce, well, at least in theory that is next

Ev'rything I've thrown, you take it (you take it) with a raised eyebrow and an arm
Holdin' up a hand like this is class and you find some question hard
"Will this take any longer? Those spears are sharp
And while I can't be cut, this stupid suit is not as up to par
Don't think anybody here wants my supernads on view
So is your curiosity sated? I'm tougher than you"

Oh, you are so funny (you are so funny), how you withstand (how you withstand) (ooh-ooh-ooh)
What I've tossed at you (what I've tossed at you) from my robot's hand
I set out this mornin' (set out this mornin') to blow up a bar (blow up a bar) (ooh-ooh-ooh)
But my int'rest won out when you came around
Oh, each time we've tussled (each time we've tussled), you would withstand (you would withstand) (ooh-ooh-ooh)
What I threw at you (what I threw at you) with no used sweat glands
Make this day less borin' (this day less borin'), we all know you're hard (all know you're hard) (ooh-ooh-ooh)
Must know: how hard?

Hey-ee-yeah-ee-yeah-ee-yeah-ee-yeah
Hey-ee-yeah-ee-yeah-ee-yeah-ee-yeah-eah
Hey-ee-yeah-ee-yeah-ee-yeah-ee-yeah (ooh-ooh-ooh)
Hey-ee-yeah-ee-yeah-ee-yeah-ee-yeah-eah

My supervillain science tests may seem harsh
It's less "rigorous standards" and more "murder you just twice as hard"
Real soon patience will wear out and then I'll be torn in two
By some less scrupulous hero, you're such a goody two-shoes

'Til then, it's grand (ooh-ooh-ooh)
You should withstand all this shit
You should withstand all of this (ooh-ooh-ooh)
All these hits won't mean shit
Ooh-ooh-ooh-ooh

A slightly more important question, IMO: why wasn't this song a bigger hit? Maybe the video involving a dirty underground barn dance wasn't as appreciated when it came out in early 2020.
