The Rutles: Joe Public


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 
‘Cause 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 (that's me) 
Joe Public, that's me (that's me) 
Joe Public (Joe Public) that's me (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 put my faith in the powers that be 
(I'm sure you all know me) 
I put my faith in the powers that be 
(I'm sure you all know me) 
I put my faith in the powers that be 
(I'm sure you all know me) 
I put my faith in the powers that be 
(I'm sure you all know me)
(I'm sure you all know me)
