Do You Want to Build an Iron Man?

Do you want to build an Iron Man
From scrap metal in a cave?
Sure, your captors they will try to shoot
But safe inside the suit
You'll find you can be brave
So turn that cave to rubble
And fly away
You don't have to get that far. . . (CRASH!)
Do you want to build an Iron Man?
Build a better, stronger Iron Man
Raise the bar

Do you want to build an Iron Man?
You could do it for a lark
Be a superhero, have a ball
Then proudly tell them all
You're really Tony Stark
To make the suit look cooler
Paint it red and gold
There's so much that you can do
Do you want to build an Iron Man?
Why not build another Iron Man?
Maybe two

Do you want to build an Iron Man
Then go soaring through the air?
If the suit gets damaged in a fight
Hey, you can put things right
'Cause you're a billionaire
The Government will want in
Even steal a suit
If you do not agree
So just build another Iron Man
You can build another Iron Man
Maybe three

Do you want to build an Iron Man,
Now go head to head with Thor? (Thunk! Clunk!)
Let your helmet of titanium
Protect your cranium
As he comes back for more
When Loki and his army
Invade New York
Who'll even up the score?
(tick-tock tick-tock tick-tock tick-tock tick-tock . . . BOOM!)
So you trashed another Iron Man
You can build another Iron Man
Maybe four

Do you want to build an Iron Man,
Give your foes what they deserve?
If the villains far outnumber you
Then summon all the suits
That you have in reserve
A smorgasbord of armour
At your command
To blow up when you are through
Do you want to build an Iron Man?
You can always build an Iron Man
It's what you do
