Verse:
Em                            D
They told him, Don't you ever come around here.
       Em
Don't wanna see your face,
             D
You better disappear.
      C                        D
The fires in their eyes and their words are really clear
   Em
So beat it
     Em
Just beat it
Em
You better run
            D
You better do what you can
       Em
Don't wanna see no blood
            D
Don't be a macho man
      C
You wanna though
       D
Better do what you can
   Em
So beat it
          D
But you wanna be bad

Chorus:
Em
Just beat -beat it-
D
Beat it -Beat it-
Em                      D
No one wants to be defeated
      Em                     D
Showin' how funky and strong is your fight
   Em                  D
It doesn't matter who's wrong or right
      Em
Just beat it
      D
Just beat it
      Em
Just beat it
      D
Just beat it

Verse:
Em
They're out to get you
       D
Better leave while you can
       Em
Don't wanna be a boy
             D
You wanna be a man
      C
You wanna stay alive
       D
Better do what you can
    Em
So beat it
      D
Just beat it

Verse:
Em                                D
You have to show them that you're really not scared
        Em
You're playin' with your life
              D
This ain't no truth or dare
         C                                        D
They'll kick you, then they beat you, then they'll tell you its fair
    Em
So beat it
         D
But you wanna be bad

Chorus:
Em
Just beat -beat it-
D
Beat it -Beat it-
Em                      D
No one wants to be defeated
      Em                     D
Showin' how funky and strong is your fight
   Em                  D
It doesn't matter who's wrong or right
      Em
Just beat it
      D
Just beat it
      Em
Just beat it
      D
Just beat it

    Does anyone have the strumming pattern?

    I agree AudreyLeeez. +5 is the easiest and it is fun and simple for begginers. I LOVE Micheal Jackson SOOOOOOOOOO much. I wish he was still alive, so I could go see one of his concerts.
