  • They'll tear out your heart, throw it knee-deep in a cart
    'cause that's what they do with the scum like me and you
    And you feel as if you died, whilst you're standing on the line
    And you wonder all the time why can't you cry?
    But the people in control don't care for you
    They're just a robot with a job to do
    And when your use is exhausted, they'll be rid of you
    As soon as look at you, go to the back of the queue!

    be-be-Big brother's got no heart
    When I get my chance
    I'm gonna kick him in the ah-ah-ah-ah-ah
    Big brother's got no heart
    When I get my chance
    I'm gonna kick him in the ah (sh) ah (sh) ah (sh) ah (sh) arse

    His eyes are dull, they stole his soul
    They left him to rot in some stinking council hole
    Where they keep him doped on beer and hopes
    Of television dreams he's living on the screens
    He knows something that he used to believe in
    That was: Every human being should have his freedom
    But while his dungeon had a way to show him
    He should be more useful, as they broke into his skull

    be-be-Big brother's got no heart
    When I get my chance
    I'm gonna kick him in the ah-ah-ah-ah-ah
    Big brother's got no heart
    When I get my chance
    I'm gonna kick him in the ah (sh) ah (sh) ah (sh) ah (sh) arse

    Big brother, beware, 'cause some of us do care
    And the worm (and the worm, and the worm, and the worm)
    May turn (may turn, may turn, may turn)
    And the violence (and the violence, and the violence, and the violence)
    In my head (in my head, in my head, in my head) is real
    Bam-bam, you're dead!

    be-be-Big brother's got no heart
    When I get my chance
    I'm gonna kick him in the ah-ah-ah-ah-ah
    Big brother's got no heart
    When I get my chance
    I'm gonna kick him in the ah (sh) ah (sh) ah (sh) ah (sh) arse

    be-be-Big brother's got no heart
    When I get my chance
    I'm gonna kick him in the ah-ah-ah-ah-ah
    Big brother's got no heart
    When I get my chance
    I'm gonna kick him in the ah (sh) ah (sh) ah (sh) ah (sh) arse

    Arse!
