Working Class Hero (藍領英雄)

[約翰藍儂 John Lennon cover]

As soon as your born they make you feel small,
(當你一生下來,他們讓你覺得自己很渺小)
By giving you no time instead of it all,
(讓你頓時無所適從)
Till the pain is so big you feel nothing at all,
(那麼劇烈的痛楚,你卻毫無感覺)
A working class hero is something to be,
(藍領英雄必須受到尊重)
A working class hero is something to be.
They hurt you at home and they hit you at school,
(他們在家傷害你,他們在學校打你)
They hate you if you're clever and they despise a fool,
(假如你聰明伶俐使他們相形見拙,他們會憎恨你)
Till you're so fucking crazy you can't follow their rules,
(你簡直瘋狂透頂,你不能任他們擺佈呀! )
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,
(當他們對你20幾年來的施暴恐嚇後)
Then they expect you to pick a career,
(他們會打量你選擇的職業)
When you can't really function you're so full of fear,
(但你是無法在充滿恐懼下還施展你的工作能力)
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,
(他們持續用宗教,性愛和電視來麻醉你)
And you think you're so clever and classless and free,
(你認為你是如此聰明,且自由自在 )
But you're still fucking peasants as far as I can see,
(其實你是他媽的沒用的弱勢族群! )
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,
(那有另一個更好的發展空間,他們卻要你按兵不動)
But first you must learn how to smile as you kill,
(首先你必須學會如何笑裡藏刀)
If you want to be like the folks on the hill, oh
(如果你想要成為像站在高處的那群人)
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,
(如果你想成為英雄的話,那就跟隨我吧!)
If you want to be a hero well just follow me.
