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
They despise a fool
Till you�re so fucking 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 20 odd years
And 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

They keep you doped with
Religion, sex and TV
And you think you�re so clever
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 us still
But first you must smile
As you learn how to kill
If you wanna 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 wanna be a hero
Just follow me
If you wanna be a hero
Just follow me
