(J.Lennon)

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

They hurt you at home
and they hit you at school
They hate you if your clever and they despise a fool
Till you're so fucking crazy
you can 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 20 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 sex and TV
And you think you're so clever and classless and free
But you're still fucking 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
If you want to be a hero just follow me
If you want to be a hero well just follow me
