John Lennon – Working Class Hero lyrics
As soon as you're born they make you feel small
By giving you no time instead of it all
Till the pain is so big you feel nothing at all
A working class hero is something to be
A working class hero is something to be

They hurt you at home and they hit you at school
They hate you if you're clever and they despise a fool
Till you're so ------- crazy you can't follow their rules
A working class hero is something to be
A working class hero is something to be

When they've tortured and scared you for twenty odd years
Then they expect you to pick a career
When you can't really function you're so full of fear
A working class hero is something to be
A working class hero is something to be

Keep you doped with religion and s** and tv
And you think you're so clever and classless and free
But you're still ------- peasants as far as I can see
A working class hero is something to be
A working class hero is something to be

There's room at the top they are telling you still
But first you must learn how to smile as you kill
If you want to be like the folks on the hill
A working class hero is something to be
A working class hero is something to be

If you want to be a hero well just follow me
If you want to be a hero well just follow me

    If you are not born with a golden spoon you will belong to the working heroes. It’s very hard to jump out of this f*****g wishes circle! With your two hands only you won’t be able to reach your dreams. Excellent education will help you to claim out of this disaster but that alone isn’t enough! Go into politics and be corrupt this might be the right way! Further you have to learn to depress your feelings for the working heroes! And with a peace of criminality you might rich the very top! On top you’re thinking you have this position for ever! This is a big mistake! What’s out for not going down to the working heroes, this can happen very fast...god bless you!!!
