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.

    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.

    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!

    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!

    Agilamj, it's such a shame that after someone like michael jackson's death you're still talking bout such crap? Must say what? Who cares? Rest in peace, mj. You cannot even spell Michael Jackson correctly, so cut the crap. Is the name of islam. What name of what? Nobody said name bout nuttin'. It's not whatever he converted to, it's his song that he has sang all his life, not what happened at the end of his life.

    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.

Everybody knws him as Michael Jackson anyway. Did you see his name change when he wuz gonna announce his tour? Did he see that as important as you see it?

    What I classic, I enjoy listing to it.
    Mj was so handsome back in the day, but I guess the pressures of his life plus the high expertations for him were to much and he got a li'l wacko.
    Beat it is such an amzing song and is one of the many songs that shows his talent like singing, dancing and writing. It doesen't matter if he was a little strange, he loved his fans, kids and his family.
    May he rest in peace and god bless his family and music.

    I think "Beat It" is a song where Michael Jackson says he knows you want to be bad, you want to be tough, macho, and show off some really good fighting skills and prowess, but it’s not worth it. He doesn’t want to see your blood, or you lose your life, so beat it or walk away from the fighting and be safe. He gets that no one wants to lose a fight or argument (be defeated), but there are times in everyone’s lives where we have to set aside our differences and stop fighting or arguing with someone and it ends up for the better, because in the end it didn't matter who was wrong or right. Peoples lives and well being are more important.

    Um, I know it's not right to say mean stuff about the deceased, but I don't like Jackson that much. I'm not a hater, but his voice is too girly. I have to admit that his moonwalk is genius, but I liked the Fall Out Boy cover of this song better. There, I said it, okay? Yeah, thumbsdown or thumbsup me, I don't really care. So R.I.P. And whatever, but I am not going to like Jackon just cuz he passed away, okay?

    These are all great comment, It shows he really did have fans not just enmeys [other known as the media]. Yeah, sure he was called Wacko Jacko cuase' he did stuff that wasen't right like taking drugs and sleeping with little boys but he also was called the king of pop, cuase' his music was huge like his album 'thirller' sold over 40 million copies-worldwide. Not every artist or band can do that every day you know? God bless his family, his fans, his children and his music. Long live the king of pop. In our hearts.

    Urm. I want to tell you all that you cannot say R.I.P to him because he convert to islam last year on 21 november if you all don't trust me you can see at YouTube at micheal jackson go to makkah I'm not liar.! I say the truth. You must say al-Fatihah to him because he convert to islam.^^(King of pop)~Mikaeel jackson is the name of islam.^^
