Real Lyrics -> Boasts in Song Lyrics -> Queen

A lot of rap music features the singer openly boasting. I'm looking for examples of boasts that are unrealistic.

Queen's, "Princes of the Universe"
The Boasting Lyrics:
Born to be kings
We're princes of the universe
I am immortal
I have inside me blood of kings
I have no rival
No man can be my equal
OK Freddie was a good singer and brilliant performer but he evidently was not immortal. Despite the band name he was no heir to a throne, let alone the universe. While he has few rivals/equals many would argue that Jagger and Bowie gave as good a musical performance. Furthermore initially he says we were born to be kings, then he is saying that they are not equal. Finally if you want to hear someone boast more than this check out Chesney Hawks and his 'one and only' hit.

Queen's, "We Are The Champions"
The Boasting Lyrics:
We are the champions, my friend
And we'll keep on fighting to the end
We are the champions
We are the champions
No time for losers
'Cos we are the the champions of the world
That's a mighty big claim!
