The Lyrics

It's a common superhero trope for some specific mineral or object to be their secret weakness, I guess to give them a bit more flavour than your standard "being blown the hell up" kinda weakness. Sometimes it can get a bit silly, though...
It seems that ev'ry story
Of dudes with a logo'd chest
Said dude will get a warning
It's a trope that I find a pest
The hero might have great strength
Or increase all their limbs' length
But if they ever meet a pear
Then they're in the shit, so I think that's a big joke

Makes me want to snipe and jeer
Hero's got a brand new fear
And it tends to be something weird
Makes me pretty sick 'cause their weakness is lame
Oh my
Magnetic Man's about to die
Because the villain's throwing fresh cream pies
Can't believe this, god, their weakness is lame

My god
Each issue becomes such a farce
When it gets to the dumbest part
"Oh no! Blue cheese!" I laugh so hard
The hero's just too strong, it's true, any problem's a cinch to solve
Must have a complication rise up, but there's ways that aren't so stupid
This is comic gold
But not the way they wanted, no, bozos

Ev'ry reader mocks and jeers
Throw that tension out of here
The fastest growing meme in years
Hurt by apple pips? God, their weakness is lame
In time
They'll push through and save all the lives
Not worth the pages spent on deadly limes
That's dumb as shit, god, their weakness is lame

Ooh-ooh-ooh

It's so simple to restrain
The poor hero, what a shame
Now the world is gripped with fear
Brought down by beets, of all things

The formula is very clear
Hero charges with no fear
And then they're flummoxed by root beer
Makes me pretty sick 'cause their weakness is lame
Sometimes
Immunity builds up, that's fine
But the next issue, they get felled by twine
Pathetic shit, god, their weakness is lame
How has this book gone on for years?
Epic storylines? Not here
Just a doofus who has weird fears
And that's simply because their weakness is lame
Still buy
This crap 'cause if the income dies
Then the good books they do will go, not right
Still gonna bitch, god, their weakness is lame

God, their weakness is lame
God, their weakness is lame

Metro Man: Copper...drains...my powers!
Megamind: Your weakness is copper? You're kidding, right?
