In 1980, it was released as the second single from her second album Crimes of Passion, which became her biggest-selling album. It hit No. 7 in Cash Box, and reached No. 9 on the Billboard Hot 100, becoming her first Top 10 hit in the US. It was particularly popular at album-rock radio stations, peaking at number 1 on the US Tunecaster Rock Tracks chart.

[Intro]

[Verse 1]
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 your dukes, let’s get down to it

[Chorus]
Hit me with your best shot
Why don’t you hit me with your best shot
Hit me with your best shot
Fire away

[Verse 2]
You come on with it, come on, you don’t fight fair
That’s okay, see if I care
Knock me down, it’s all in vain
I get right back on my feet again

[Chorus]
Hit me with your best shot
Why don’t you hit me with your best shot
Hit me with your best shot
Fire away

[Instrumental]

[Verse 3]
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

[Chorus]
Hit me with your best shot
C’mon, hit me with your best shot
Hit me with your best shot
Fire away

[Chorus]
Hit me with your best shot
Why don’t you hit me with your best shot
Hit me with your best shot
Fire away
