John Lennon – Working Class Hero


Working Class Hero by John Lennon


John Lennon – Working Class Hero

As soon as your 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
Working Class Hero is something to be
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 despise a fool
Till you’re so fucking crazy you can’t follow their rules
Working Class Hero is something to be
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
Working Class Hero is something to be
Working Class Hero is something to be

Keep you doped with religon, sex and T.V.
and you think you’re so clever and classless and free
but you’re still fucking peasents as far as I can see
Working Class Hero is something to be
Working Class Hero is something to be

There’s room at the top I’m 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
Working Class Hero is something to be

Yes , 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

    One Response to John Lennon – Working Class Hero

    1. Doktor Who: a smooth operator says:

      The Doktor will not follow John Lennon, who was always keen on public support. The Doktor think, that if mister Lennon should wash his dishes or do any other normal work, he’d better have been of.
      The Doktor has always been willing for simple work, so he is going to cut vegetables for people eating in a church.
      The church is thereby forfilling it’s social function.
      John Lennon is a ‘showleier”, but opened hart of many people.
