31 años sin el héroe de la clase obrera.


Me he pasado la mañana escuchando todos los discos que tengo de Lennon. Cada 8 de diciembre hago lo mismo; mi pequeño tributo al inigualable genio en el aniversario de su muerte. Fue muy difícil escoger una canción para compartir, pero al final terminé haciendo un concurso entre las cinco finalistas; la ganadora sería la que lograra ponerme la piel de gallina más rápido. "Working class hero" lo consiguió con el primer golpe de las cuerdas, así que aquí va:




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 hard 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 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
