Beat It Lyrics

Play "Beat It"

[1st Verse]
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

[2nd Verse]
You Better Run, You Better Do What...

    This song is simply about life on the streets and gang battles. The music video even features two gangs fighting, which is proof enough.

    This song is about the ghetto. Mike is talking about how dangerous gangs can be and how you can get laid out just by going to the wrong places.
