  • Lyrics
  • Public enemy number one
    Jail break and a smoking gun
    You won't believe the things I've done
    And the killing was just for fun

    Public enemy number one
    A stolen car and I'm on the run
    Through the night through the rising sun
    And the trouble has just begun

    Roses on your grave
    I'll be on my way
    There's no time to stay
    With the enemies I've made

    I'm invincible
    You might say despicable
    Punishments reciprocal
    Public enemy number one

    I'm unbeatable
    My mind is untreatable
    Crimes repeatable
    Public enemy number one

    Public enemy number one
    Watch the authorities come undone
    With every standoff that I've won
    Flirting death just for fun

    Public enemy number one
    Born a fugitives fathers son
    Another heist of a bank is done
    And the trouble has just begun

    Roses on your grave
    I'll be on my way
    There's no time to stay
    With the enemies I've made

    I'm invincible
    You might say despicable
    Punishments reciprocal
    Public enemy number one

    I'm unbeatable
    My mind's untreatable
    Crimes unrepeatable
    Public enemy number one

    They say that I'm wanted
    Dead or dead
    But everyone who's tried
    Got a bullet to their head

    I'm invincible
    You might say despicable
    Punishments reciprocal
    Public enemy number one

    I'm unbeatable
    My mind's untreatable
    Crimes, unrepeatable
    Public enemy number one

    Public enemy!
    Public enemy!
    Public enemy!
    Public enemy!Writer/s: DAVE MUSTAINE, JOHN KARKAZIS
