Michael Jackson – Beat It lyrics

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

Just 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, beat it
Just beat it, beat it
Just beat it. Beat it
Just beat it, 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

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

    I think what "beat it" means is not to get in fights and do bad things like: fighting, drugs tempting children, and so on. He's trying to say that it's wrong to break the law and there is consequences to your actions so he's trying to get people to reealize that illegal things are wrong so they won't. So that ur neighborhood, you and the children will be a little safer.

    That was a really bad mistake when the fall out boys remade this song. Nobody can top Michael Jackson. He is called the King of Pop for a reason. Nobody should change anything about any of his songs. I still can't believe he is dead. He was an unbelievable singer and a talented dancer. He will always live in our hearts and we will miss him so much. Pray for the Jackson family. Rest In Peace Michael Joseph Jackson!

    The reason why I love this song is because I fansy michael jackson and I wish he was still here so then I can give him one big kiss on his lips and have children with him and I am really upset and miserable and have been crying for 6 days in a row and can't stop crying and everytime someone talks about him to me I start crying that is how much I want to be with him love from chanelle matthews.

    I think what mj was trying to say is that when trouble is sbout to happen, just beat it. All the people who was talking crap about Mike and was calling him a child molester is wrong! He went through all that pressure and drama when he was growing up just to die with all that. You peoples just don't know how hurt he was. But I did. Rest in peace mj! I love you always! I won't ever forget you!

    Superstar123, I understand you but some people don't. I suggest it's best not to post comments that offend other people. It doesn't offend me coz' I understand you're personal opinions but still, you should be a bit respectuful. Please think about what other people will think before posting a comment. I'm not making a fight here, I'm just telling other people to think about what other people might feel if you kinda' offend.
    But I'm A big fan of mj and I"M proud of it.
