working class hero lyrics – ozzy osbourne

(originally by john lennon)

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 cl*ss 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 f*cking crazy you can’t follow their rules,
a working cl*ss 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 cl*ss hero is something to be,

keep you doped with religion and s*x and tv,
and you think you’re so clever and you’re cl*ssless and free,
but you’re still f*cking peasants as far as i can see,
a working cl*ss hero is something to be,
a working cl*ss 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 fool on the hill,
a working cl*ss hero is something to be.
a working cl*ss hero is something to be.
if you want to be a hero, well just follow me
