Well you're the real tough cookie with a long history
Of breaking little hearts like the one in me
That's okay, let's see how you do it
Put up you dukes, let's get down to it

Hit me with your best shot
Why don't you hit me with your best shot
Hit me with your best shot
Fire away

You come on with it, come on
You don't fight fair
But that's okay, see if I care
Knock me down, it's all in vain
I get right back on my feet again

Hit me with your best shot
Why don't you hit me with your best shot
Hit me with your best shot
Fire away

Well you're the real tough cookie with a long history
Of breaking little hearts like the one in me
Before I put another notch in my lipstick case
You better make sure you put me in my place

Hit me with your best shot
C'mon, hit me with your best shot
Hit me with your best shot
Fire away

Hit me with your best shot
Why don't you hit me with your best shot
Hit me with your best shot
Fire away

    General CommentThe only purpose this song serves is to make a great night out with the girls at a karaoke bar! In the best way she could, I feel as if she was hinting that she as gay in the fist line of the song. " Well your a real tough cookie " Don't know many men that would be refereed to by a woman as a real tough cookie. I think Pat was reliving her story of her first lesbian experience and how different it was from that of any male relationships she had in the past. The tough cookie, putting another notch in my lipstick case is almost emphasizing her femininity which in fact was the polor opposite of who she was on state and in her actual life, I feel by her emphasizing the lipstick was almost stating that she was the fem in this relationship and threatening her female companion that she was now comfortable with the whole lesbian experience and was more then willing to leave her first experience and go for another woman. By referring to this woman as a real tough cookie, the woman probably knew she was Pat's first woman experience and had that dominance over her head but after she seen that Pat was starting to come out of her shell, thus the " Before I put another notch in my lipstick case, you better make sure you put me in my place.
