Pat Benatar - Hit Me With Your Best Shot


Pat Benatar - Hit Me With Your Best Shot


In 1984, Benatar had an interesting exchange with Songwriter Connection magazine regarding this song. Responding to a question about standing behind what she sings, Benatar said:


"There's very few songs where I let lyrics go. I mean, there's times when I let lyrics go because the rest of the song is fine. But, most of the time, I'm real meticulous with the lyrics because I gotta sing them. There were certain parts of that song ('Hit Me With Your Best Shot') that I liked, but most of it that I've sort of outgrown. I mean, it's so hard to sing, 'you're a real tough cookie.'


Hit me with your best shot - Lyrics


Well you're the real tough cookie With the long history Of breaking little hearts Like the one in me That's OK, Lets see how you do it Put up your dukes, Lets 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 a "come on" You don't fight fair But that's OK, see if I care Knock me down, it's all in vain I'll 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 the 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 Come On, 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
