Working Class Hero

Friday 9 December 2005

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 and 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 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 class less 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 learn how to smile as you kill
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

    Old John was ahead of his time . Maybe it’s time to start taking him seriously.

  • what’s fucking wrong in being a peasants?

    • his reference to being peasants is more likely to be the mental poverty all too pervasive, and the fact that the ruling classes have allowed us bits of technology and other objects doesn’t address this problem. The fact that you have no problem being referred to as a peasant really makes the point far better than i could

  • Hey !!! Are they flowers outta my garden ?? > Awh Hell.. caint they leave us peasants alone

    • And let`s not forget the peasants` sons.
      For who else would pluck the pheasants,
      With due care and humility,
      Whilst the ruling class,
      Secure, with napkin set,

      Awaits the pheasant pluckers,
      And the pheasant pluckers sons,
      Humble peasants` sons,
      Humbly plucking pheasants,
      As only peasants can.
