    Em                               D
1.    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
2.    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.
          Em                 D
    Just beat it, beat it, beat it, beat it,
     Em                    D
    no one wants to be defeated.
      C                      D
    Showin' how funky and strong is your fight,
    C                   D
    it doesn't matter who's wrong or right,
          Em                      D
    just beat it, beat it, just beat it, beat it
          Em                      D
    Just beat it, beat it, just beat it, beat it.


    Em                                  D
3.     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
4.     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
    Just beat it, but you wanna be bad.
    
      Em                 D
Just beat it, beat it, beat it, beat it,
 Em                    D
no one wants to be defeated.
  C                      D
Showin' how funky and strong is your fight,
 C                  D
it doesn't matter who's wrong or right.
