It was the midnight hour when the boy broke
Out of Frisco
Running scared he's moving from the heat
The electric chair was the sentence there
But they didn't take the time or care to see
That it wasn't Billy

Chorus
They call him public enemy No. 1
But they can't know what's going on
They call him public enemy No. 1
But they can't know what's going on

Cruising in a car heading down the main street
To see my girl, she's waiting there for me
The cops are tailing with their sirens wailing
But the one thing they can see is there ain't
Just Billy oh no
Gonna race this car get away from here
Start a new life, there'll be no more fear for me
No no no

Chorus
They call me public enemy No. 1
But they won't know what's going on
They call me public enemy No. 1
But they don't know what's going on with me

I'll tell you girl if we make it to the borderline
We will be free just you and me
I swear I will make you mine till the end of our time

Now Billy's got a gun and he's heading for the border
Moving fast they're almost in the clear
Police are waiting with an ambush, saying
There ain't nothing passing here, not even Billy
They're gunning Billy down in the middle of the street
Till him full of lead and his girl begins to scream no no no

Chorus
They called him public enemy No. 1
But they don't know what's going on
They called him public enemy No. 1
But they don't know what's going on
They called him public enemy No. 1
Gotta shoot to kill cause he's on the run
They called him public enemy No. 1
They called him Billy
