As soon as your 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 classless and free 
But you're still fucking peasents 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
