Working Class Hero

One Response to “Working Class Hero”

  1. As soon as you’re born they make you feel small
    By giving you no time instead of it all
    ‘Til 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 if you’re clever and despise a fool
    ‘Til you’re so **** 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 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’re telling you still
    But first you must learn how to smile as you kill
    If you want to be like all the folks on the hill
    A working class hero is something to be
    A working class hero is something to be

    A working class hero is something to be
    A working class hero is something to be
    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

    Desde que naces hacen que te sientas pequeño
    Porque no te dan tiempo en vez dártelo todo
    Hasta que el dolor es tan grande que no sientes nada
    Podrías ser un héroe de la clase obrera

    Te hacen daño en casa y te pegan en la escuela
    Te odian si eres listo y te toman por loco
    Hasta que estás tan atontado que no entiendes nada
    Podrías ser un héroe de la clase obrera

    Después de veintitantos años de horror y tortura
    Se supone que has de elegir un trabajo
    Pero ya no puedes funcionar del miedo que tienes
    Podrías ser un héroe de la clase obrera

    Te drogan con la religión, el sexo y la televisión
    Y te crees ingenioso, apolítico y libre
    Pero no eres más que un jodido ignorante
    Podrías ser un héroe de la clase obrera

    Te dicen que puedes llegar a la cima
    Pero antes has de aprender a matar sonriendo
    Si deseas triunfar como los de allá arriba

    Podrías ser un héroe de la clase obrera
    Si quieres ser un héroe, sígueme.
