POP MUSIC : Words From Public Enemy

February 07, 1988

I'm a Public Enemy

But I don't rob banks.

I don't shoot bullets

And I don't shoot blanks.

My style is supreme--

Number one is my rank.

And I got more power

Than the New York Yanks

--From "Miuzi Weighs a Ton"

I'm on a mission

to set you straight

Children-- It's not to late

Explain to the world

when it's plain to see

To be what the world

doesn't want us to be.

\f7 --From "Rightstarter

(Message to a Black Man)"
