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 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 peasents 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.
Well, he works hard on the highway underneath the burnin' sun
And his hands are hard and calloused from the work that he has done
He pulls a dragline 'cross the country on a flatbed trailer truck
He picks cotton down in Texas in the fields where he grew up
He doesn't have much education, but he takes that in stride
And he won't ask no-one for nothing, 'cause he's a man with a lot of pride

He's a working class hero, he's a man, he's America
He's a working class hero, He's a man, he's America

Well you can see him on the scaffold, hanging 20 stories high
He is the builder of the building that's growing in the sky
And his spirit's on the highway, where the sweat from his brow is shed
And in the coal mines in Virginia where he works until he's dead
He doesn't have much education, but he takes that in stride
And he won't ask no one for nothing, 'cause he's a man with a lot of pride

He's a working class hero, he's a man, he's America
He's a working class hero, he's a man, he's America

You can see him in the stock yards, in Chicago and St. Lou
And on the docks in San Francisco, and down in Houston too
He is the man most like a mountain, 'cause his shoulders are so strong
He demands respect and gets it, he won't let you do him wrong
He doesn't have much education, but he takes that in stride
And he won't ask no-one for nothing, 'cause he's a man with a lot of pride

He's a working class hero, he's a man, he's America
He's a working class hero, he's a man, he's America
He's a working class hero, he's a man, he's America
He's a working class hero, he's a man, he's America
He's a working class hero, he's a man, he's America
