#1562: Well, that only took me 26 years.

The chorus to Michael Jackson's "Beat It" always sounded like this to me:
Just beat it (beat it)
Beat it (beat it)
No one wants to see [unintelligible]
Just now, while waiting for Spike TV's "Powerblock" to start, I heard it on Sirius 80s on 8, and finally decoded the third line:
Just beat it (beat it)
Beat it (beat it)
No one wants to be defeated.
Now I can work on the next quatrain:
Show 'em what's funky,
Show 'em what's right,
It doesn't matter
Who's wrong or right
I'm sure at least one of those lines is wrong. And even if I've heard them correctly, it still doesn't make much sense to me.

Well, maybe it will when I'm in the nursing home.
