how to drop table named user

We accidentally created a table called user in our public schema. We are
now trying to remove the table using DROP TABLE user and even DROP TABLE
public.user. However every time we try we get an error message: ERROR:
parser: parse error at or near "user" at character 12

Any suggestion on how to remove this table? I thought maybe going through
Pg Class, but I'm terrified of mucking something else up.
