Public Animal #9 (3:53)

(Michael Bruce, Alice Cooper)

(Hey hey hey, yeah)
(Hey hey hey)

Me and G.B.
We ain't never gonna confess
We cheated at the math test
We carved some dirty words on our desk
Well now it's time for recess
Old man waitin' by the monkey bars
Tradin' all his ball cards
And they promised him a gold star
And they told him he could go far

Hey Mr. Bluelegs
Where are you takin' me?
I'm like a lifer
In the state penitentiary
If I keep my nose clean
I won't get my eye shined
But I'm proud to be
Public Animal Number Nine

License plates are, are runnin' out of my ears
I'd give a month of cigarettes for just a couple of lousy beers
Or even a bottle of real cheap wine
But that's the price you pay to be
Public Animal Number Nine, Number Nine
(Ooooh!)

Hey Mrs. Cranston
Where are you takin' me?
Feel like a lifer
In the state penitentiary
She wanted an Einstein
But she got a Frankenstein
Yeah, I'm proud to be
Public Animal Number Nine

(Aaow!)
Public Animal Number Nine
Public Animal Number Nine
Public Animal Number Nine Nine
Public Animal Number Nine Number Nine
Number Nine Number Nine
Number Nine , Number Nine
Animal Number Nine
Public Animal Number Nine Nine
Public Animal Number Nine
Public Animal Number Nine
Errrrrrrrrrrrgh
Public Animal Number Nine
Public Animal Number Nine
Public Animal Number Number Nine Nine
Public Animal Naaaaaaaagh

Song Information

"'Luney Tune' and 'Public Animal No. 9' are like a combination of being locked up in school and being locked up in jail. One line says, 'Hey, Mr Blue Legs, where are you taking me', which is the policeman, and another says, 'Hey, Mrs. Cranston, where are you taking me,' which is the teacher. What's the difference between being locked up in school and being locked up in jail?" (Circus magazine, August 1972)
