(single by Michael Jackson, from the album "Thriller"; released on February 14, 1983)

 

They told him don't you ever come around here,
Don't wanna see your face, you better disappear,
The fire's in their eyes and their words are really clear,
So beat it, just beat it.

You better run, you better do what you can,
Don't wanna see no blood, don't be a macho man.
You wanna be tough, better do what you can,
So beat it, but you wanna be bad.

[Chorus]

Just beat it, (beat it), beat it, (beat it),
No one wants to be defeated.
Showin' how funky and strong is your fight,
It doesn't matter who's wrong or right.
Just beat it.

They're out to get you, better leave while you can,
Don't wanna be a boy, you wanna be a man.
You wanna stay alive, better do what you can,
So beat it, just beat it.

You have to show them that you're really not scared,
You're playin' with your life, this ain't no truth or dare;
They'll kick you, then they beat you,
Then they'll tell you it's fair,
So beat it, but you wanna be bad.

[Chorus]

Just beat it, (beat it), beat it, (beat it),
No one wants to be defeated.
Showin' how funky and strong is your fight,
It doesn't matter who's wrong or right.

[Repeat chorus]
