[Verse]
                       A            Bm
As soon as your born they make you feel small
                      A             Bm
By giving you no time instead of it all
                                 A         Bm
Till the pain is so big you feel nothing at all
                A       E            Bm
A working class hero is something to be
                A       E            Bm
A working class hero is something to be


[Verse]
                 A             E          Bm
They hurt you at home and they hit you at school
                                    A         Bm
They hate if you're clever and they despise a fool
                                       A            Bm
Till you're so fucking crazy you can't follow their rules
                A       E            Bm
A working class hero is something to be
                A       E            Bm
A working class hero is something to be


[Pre-Chorus]
                          A              E          Bm
When they've tortured and scared you for twenty odd years
                          A      Bm
Then they expect you to pick a career
                                      A          Bm
When you can't really function you're so full of fear


[Chorus]
                A       E            Bm
A working class hero is something to be
                A       E            Bm
A working class hero is something to be


[Verse]
                    A            E       Bm
Keep you doped with religion and sex and TV,
                                          A             Bm
And you think you're so clever and you're classless and free,
                                     A            Bm
But you're still fucking peasants as far as I can see,
                A       E            Bm
A working class hero is something to be
                A       E            Bm
A working class hero is something to be

[Pre-Chorus]
                    A            E           Bm
There's room at the top they are telling you still
                                A            Bm
But first you must learn how to smile as you kill
                               A            Bm
If you want to be like all the folks on the hill


[Chorus]
                A       E            Bm
A working class hero is something to be
                A       E            Bm
A working class hero is something to be
                A       E            Bm
A working class hero is something to be
                A       E            Bm
A working class hero is something to be
