Em                               D

   They told him don't you ever come around here

        Em                             D

Don't wanna see your face, you better disappear

     C                              D

The fire's in their eyes and their words are really clear

    Em            D

So beat it, just beat it

 

Em                            D

  You better run, you better do what you can

       Em                             D

Don't wanna see no blood, don't be a macho man

     C                      D

You wanna be tough, better do what you can

     Em              D

So beat it, but you wanna be bad

 

Chorus:

      Em                D

Just beat it, beat it, beat it, beat it

  Em                  D

No one wants to be defeated

      Em              D

Showin' how funky, strong is your fight

  Em                   D

It doesn't matter who's wrong or right

 

      Em      

Just beat it, beat it

      D      

Just beat it, beat it

      Em      

Just beat it, beat it

      D      

Just beat it, beat it

 

Em                                D

  They're out to get you, better leave while you can

       Em                        D

Don't wanna be a boy, you wanna be a man

     C                        D

You wanna stay alive, better do what you can

    Em            D

So beat it, just beat it

 

Em                                   D

  You have to show them that you're really not scared

          Em                                   D

You're playin' with your life, this ain't no truth or dare

         C                                          D

They'll kick you, then they beat you, then they'll tell you it's fair

    Em               D

So beat it, but you wanna be bad

 

Chorus x2

 

      Em (hold)      

Just beat it!
