Working Class Hero

by 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 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

Pena que matem quem tanto tem a dizer e a dar a este mundo e por ai continuem tanto sacana a lixar-nos a vida.

Entre as múltiplas maravilhas com que o Lennon nos brindou, esta é provavelmente a mais deliciosa. Uma verdadeira pérola intemporal!

Esse é um dos motivos pelos quais eu não acredito na justiça divina... e nem na dos homens!
Beijo!

Sim, uma das pérolas de Lennon. Pena que por cada uma destas pérolas tenhamos que "coabitar" com tantos porcos e que no fim seja destes o triunfo!
