    Wink I'd love to go with you, but I'm beat.

    Could you help me out? Does sentence one have the same meaning as sentences two or three? Which one is better and why? Thanks a lot.

    1. I'd love to go with you, but I'm beat.
    2. I will not be able to go with you because I'm beat.
    3. I will not go with you because I'm beat.

    They are all OK. Number 1 is most natural. Number 3 is less polite; it reads like the speaker is somewhat angry.

    Please note that the adjective 'beat' is chiefly an AE slang word for 'exhausted'.
