A Working Class Hero

1 Leave a comment on verse 1 0 A working class hero
Has been through the mill
He won’t need to be told
When he’s over the hill!

2 Leave a comment on verse 2 0 He’ll be a footballer
A boxer or such like
He’ll sweat you his blood
As he ploughs through this life!

3 Leave a comment on verse 3 0 As a part of a team
He’ll give it his all
Thats why so many
Excel at football!

4 Leave a comment on verse 4 0 When I see
The pampered stars of today
And the things they get up to
Outside of play!

5 Leave a comment on verse 5 0 It makes me angry
At the same time its funny
That a working class hero
Would sell out for money!

6 Leave a comment on verse 6 0 An idol
Used to pop in the pub
To speak with the fans
Have a pint and some grub!

All fans need to know
Is printed right there
Inside of Hello!

Is something to see
Because after all
He represents you and me!!!

Notes

This is my version of a John Lennon classic. But I feel we are all a little bit too blame. we idolise them and when they let themselves down, they are letting us down as well, I think thats why we get so angry with
people like the Toon Two who were at it over the weekend. Our club, our idols, our team its all the same passionate thing to us, but if they get chucked out and move on somewhere else, we are left with the shambles they’ve created!!!

The Toon could be out of the FA cup and the Euro thing as a result of having to field a weakened team over these two having a bit of fisticuffs on the field of play. I’m sorry to say its not the first time for either of them?

peace.

kev.
