"Working Class Hero" as written by and John Lennon....
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 your clever and they despise a fool
Till you`re so fucking crazy you can`t fallow 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
Ah 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 wit 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 are telling you still
But first you must smile as you kill
But if you want to 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 want to be a hero well just follow me
If you want to be a hero well just follow me
Just follow me

    General CommentIt seems this song is addressing the big boys at the top looking down at the working class....telling you you can be like them, but they are just leading you on.
