Is this song about a "big man" who is surprisingly easy to beat in a fight?. What exactly are the lyrics?

I reckon you mean The Jewels song "One Little Lick"? Its been some time since I listened to it last but from memory its about general "big men" boasting up themselves thinking their hot stuff while all it really takes is one little lick to push them off the high horse.
