HTML and JS clicker game not working

I made a clicker game on HTML and JavaScript but it didn’t work. When I click the button it should change the counter but it doesn’t

My HTML file (index.html):

<!DOCTYPE html>
<html lang="en">
    <meta charset="UTF-8">
    <meta name="viewport" content="width=device-width, initial-scale=1.0">
    <title>Clicker Game</title>
    <h1>Clicker Game</h1>
    <p id="click-count">Clicks: 0</p>
    <button onclick="click()">Click Me</button>
    <script src="script.js"></script>

My JavaScript file (script.js):

var clicks = 0;

function click() {
    document.getElementById("click-count").innerHTML = "Clicks: " + clicks;

what do you mean “not working?”

I mean when I click the button the score doesn’t change

ok can you send a link to your Repl?

ok well if you use this code instead everything seems to work fine

<button id="click-button">Click Me</button>
let clicks = 0;

document.getElementById("click-button").addEventListener("click", () => {
    document.getElementById("click-count").innerText = "Clicks: " + clicks;

so I used let because var is outdated and I gave the button an id because event listeners are better than on<event>. I also used innerText instead of innerHTML

I don’t know what the problem was but I’m guessing that it was the onclick.
