WORKING CLASS HERO
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 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 the folks on The Hill
A working-class hero is something to be

Yes, 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

Notes from Lennon Legend DVD:
Directed by Simon Hilton in 2003, this film for ‘Working Class Hero’ was filmed in Liverpool at locations important to John Lennon’s childhood — at Dovedale, John’s primary school; at the Strawberry Field Salvation Army Home in Woolton and John’s childhood home ‘Mendips’ at 251 Menlove Avenue (also in Woolton), which had recently been acquired by Yoko Ono Lennon, donated to the National Trust and restored to a high standard in order for the public to visit.
Executive Producer: Yoko Ono Lennon.

You can visit Mendips with the National Trust here:
