    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!
