Working Class Hero Lyrics - Green Day

Review The Song (23)



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
sponsored links
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 are telling you still
But first you must learn how to smile as you kill
If you want to be like all the folks on the hill
A working class hero is something to be
A working class hero is something to be
A working class hero is something to be
A working class hero is something to be
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

Well. | Reviewer: Armande | 12/10/08

I am usually against any and all Beatles' of John Lennon covers, but this song really made me think about and appreciate the lyrics on an even deeper level. I think that Green Day did a good job, and I admire them all the more for it.

i love Green Day they are one of my favorit bands i like the cover "Working Class Hero" i think they did the best job by far Johns cover is amazing aswell but i love how Bille sings the song with so much more meaning than John did i also like Mansons cover of "Working Class Hero" :D

about the song working class hero performed by green day | Reviewer: tilly | 8/27/07

John Lennon did it the best and all the other try hards should leave it alone

people are so stupid... | Reviewer: Mike Average | 7/25/07

I REALLY don't think they were trying to "out do" john lennon. They are trying to show that the same B.S. is still going on today, and God willing, someone will get off their ASS and DO SOMETHING...anything, even if its wrong...at least its something. Great song, Great message, I truly hope it gets to the right person.



I have a better cover | Reviewer: Anonymous | 7/23/07

Green Day did a pretty good job, but Ozzy Osbourne in my opinion did a much better job. He has a way of making it work. Green Day seemed to be trying too hard. Listen to Ozzy's version before you get sold on Green Day.



!!!!! | Reviewer: Emily | 7/22/07

I Love This Song It Is My Favorite Song By Green Day!!!!
