[Verse 1]
  E                                         C#m
    Well you're a real tough cookie with a long history
         B
Of breaking little hearts, like the one in me.
  E               C#m
That's O.K., lets see how you do it
                  B
Put up your dukes, lets get down to it.

[Chorus]
E                    A        C#m     B
Hit Me With Your Best Shot

Why Don't You Hit Me With Your Best Shot
E                   A          C#m   B
Hit Me With Your Best Shot.
E               A              C#m    B   A   B
Fire Away!

[Verse 2]
You come on with a "come on", you don't fight fair
That's O.K., 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!
