Lyrics

When I'm dead It will be read "Here Lies The Public Image" 5 percent human being And 95 image

What you see is what you get And what you get may well be worth seeing But just be careful when you walk On those old broken stones Because they are my feelings

If I smile Do not be swayed I simply serve the public image When all have gone Just one remains Thank God for the public image

What you see is what you get And what you get may well be worth seeing But just be careful when you walk On those old broken stones Because they are my feelings

Scrape beneath The surface and You will find more public image

I used to have A childish dream Until I had it kicked from me I tried to pass myself off As a Human being But the truth soon exposed me I had a love and she was very kind But she was no match for the Public Image

What you see is all there is And what there is may well be worth seeing But just be careful what you say About people like me Because we don't take it lightly
