John Lennon "Working Class Hero" Music Video

Song 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 f**king 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 sex and TV

And you think you`re so clever and classless and free

But you`re still f**king 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
