"Beat It (Michael Jackson cover)" as written by and Michael Joe Jackson....
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 leave while you can
Don't wanna see no blood, don't be a macho man
You wanna stay 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
Show em how funky strong is your fight
It doesn't matter who's wrong or right

Just beat it
Just beat it
Just beat it
Just 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 got 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'll beat you,
Then they'll tell you it's fair
So beat it, but you wanna be bad

Just beat it, beat it, beat it, beat it
No one wants to be defeated
Showin' how funky strong is your fight
It doesn't matter who's wrong or right

Just beat it
Just beat it
Just beat it
Just beat it

Beat it [x5]
Beat it [x5]
Beat it [x5]
Beat it [x5]

Just beat it, beat it, beat it, beat it
No one wants to be defeated
Showin' how funky strong is your fight
It doesn't matter who's wrong or right

Just beat it, beat it, beat it, beat it
No one wants to be defeated
Showin' how funky strong is your fight
It doesn't matter who's wrong or right

Just beat it
Just beat it
Just beat it
Just beat it [x4]

    General Commentjohn mayer is playing the guitar! i saw them do this last may, and i have it on video on my youtube, it was pretty awesome. but john mayer wasn't there...that would've been a lot cooler. anyways, patrick's voice is amazing in this, but his voice is always amazing! he's my favorite. : D

    General CommentIt's such an awesome cover. The guitar riffs in this make it even better. Stump at his usual best.

    General CommentI think this song is about beating the people telling you that you're wrong and keep doing what you think is right, going your own way and leaving the world.
