GREEN DAY LYRICS

"Working Class Hero"

[John Lennon cover]

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 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 you're 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

If you want to be a hero, well just follow me
If you want to be a hero, well just follow me

Just as long as nobody remakes "Imagine". God help me, I can't stand that song.

John Lennon was a heroic figure to guys of my generation - opposing the Vietnam war, campaigning for world peace, speaking out against hypocrisy and bigotry, and just so many amazing songs. Sorry Melliferal....including "Imagine". ;\)

I saw him in concert about 1974 and it was amazing - except I wished Yoko Ono would just shut up!

Much love,
Larry
