Rutles – Joe Public lyrics

My name is Joe Public - I'm sure you all know me
Sometimes they call me 'the man in the street'
But I don't mind
I've got my place in society
I've got my feet on the ground
I've got my pride and my prejudices
No one can push me around
My name is Joe Public - I'm sure you all know me
Sometimes they call me 'the proletariat'
But I don't mind
They know me for my common sense
They know they can't please all of me
They know I can't be fooled - all of the time
I am what I am and I'm happy to be
Joe Public, that's me
Joe Public, that's me
I put my faith in the powers that be
Joe Public - that's me
My name is Joe Public - I'm sure you all know me
Sometimes they call me 'the great unwashed'
But I don't mind
Sticks and stones may break my bones
But names can never hurt me
I've got my pride and my prejudices
I am what I am and I'm happy to be
Joe Public, that's me
Joe Public, that's me
Joe Public, that's me
Joe Public, that's me
I put my faith in the powers that be
Joe Public - that's me
I put my faith in the powers that be...
I'm sure you all know me...
