As soon as you're born they make you feel small
Till the pain is so big you feel nothing at all
A working class hero is something to be
They hurt you at home and they hit you at school
Till you're so ****ing crazy you can't follow their rules
A working class hero is something to be
When they've tortured and scared you for twenty-odd years
When you can't really function you're so full of fear
A working class hero is something to be
Keep you doped with religion and sex and TV
But you're still ****ing peasants as far as I can see
A working class hero is something to be
There's room at the top they're telling you still
If you want to be like the folks on the hill
A working class hero is something to be
If you want to be a hero well just follow me
