Super Duper

from the album Swing 'n' Swive (2010)
music and lyrics: Joseph L. Thornburg

I've never had it but I've been accused
I've gotten used to this kind of abuse
True I catch a cold every now and then
A small price to pay for cheating death

I've played rough and I've played with fire
But even my foes can't call me a liar
It's just their sense of irresponsibility
While I get stronger 'coz nothing kills me!

I'm super, I'm duper, indestructible, take your best shot
I'm super, super-duper, it's all in my mind and that's the whole point

I love my body and it loves me
I think I've got the gift of invulnerability
If you tried to chop off my head, I think
Your axe would break and I wouldn't blink!

I've rubbed up against the dangerous things
Risky, you might think, but I'm not gambling
If I jumped off a cliff, would I survive?
It's a pity we don't know for sure what keeps me alive!

I'm super, I'm duper, indestructible, take your best shot
I'm super, super-duper, it's all in my mind and that's the whole point

Skin sample, blood sample, stool sample, sperm sample
Find out just what makes me tick
Maim me, grenade me, impale me, and bloodstain me
Find out why I don't get sick

Wanna see if my safety can be chained?
Just take my hand and we'll jump in front of the train!

I'm super, I'm duper, indestructible, take your best shot
I'm super, super-duper, it's all in my mind and that's the whole point
Metabolic, firewall-ic, Typhoid Mary herself could not infect me
I'm hermetic, copasetic, just call me Fort Knox 'coz I'm impregnable!
