Una canzone che – mi pare – possa fare il paio con Working Class Hero.
Celebre anche la scena del film “Body Heat” (“Brivido caldo”) di Lawrence Kasdan (1981) dove “Feel Like a Number” viene cantata da uno splendido Mickey Rourke quasi esordiente.
I take my card and I stand in line
To make a buck I work overtime
Dear Sir letters keep coming in the mail

I work my back till it's racked with pain
The boss can't even recall my name
I show up late and I'm docked
It never fails

Feel like just another
Spoke in a great big wheel
Like a tiny blade of grass
In a great big field, whoa

To workers I'm just another drone
To Ma Bell I'm just another phone (*)
I'm just another statistic on a sheet

To teachers I'm just another child
To IRS I'm another file (**)
I'm just another consensus on the street

Gonna cruise out of this city
Head down to the sea
Gonna shout out at the ocean
Hey it's me!

And I feel like a number
Feel like a number
Feel like a stranger
A stranger in this land
I feel like a number
I'm not a number
I'm not a number
Damnit, I'm a man
I said I'm a man

Gonna cruise out of this city
Head down to the sea
Gonna shout out at the ocean
Hey it's me!

And I feel like a number
Feel like a number
Feel like a stranger
Stranger in this land

I feel like a number
I'm not a number
I'm not a number
Damnit, I’m a man
I feel like a number
Feel like a number
Feel like a number

Hey, I feel like a, I feel
I feel like
I feel like
I feel like
I feel like
I feel like...
Note:
(*) Ma Bell, Mother Bell, come veniva colloquialmente chiamata la compagnia dei telefoni American Bell Telephone Company che fino al 1984 ha avuto il monopolio dei servizi telefonici negli USA.
(**) IRS, Internal Revenue Service, l’agenzia delle entrate americana.
