Working Class Hero

 

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 beThey 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 ****ing crazy you can’t follow their rules
A working class hero is something to beWhen 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 beKeep you doped with religion and sex and TV
And you think you’re so clever and classless and free
But you’re still ****ing peasants as far as I can see
