It's the hard-knock life for us!
It's the hard-knock life for us!

'Steada treated

We get tricked!

'Steada kisses

We get kicked!

It's the hard-knock life!
Got no folks to speak of, so
It's the hard-knock row we how!

Cotton blankets

'Steada of wool!

Empty bellies

'Steada of full!

It's the hard-knock life!

Don't if feel like the wind is always howln'?

Don't it seem like there's never any light!

Once a day, don't you wanna throw the towel in?

It's easier than puttin' up a fight

No one's there when your dreams at night get creepy!
No one cares if you grow or if you shrink!
No one dries when your eyes get wet an' weepy!

From the cryin' you would think this place's a sink!
Oh!

Empty belly life!
Rotten smelly life!
Full of sorrow life!
No tomorrow life!

Santa Claus we never see

Santa Claus, what's that who's he?

No one cares for you a smidge
When you're in an orphanage!

It's the hard-knock life!

You'll stay up till this dump shines like the top of the Chrysler Building

Yank the whiskers from her chin
Jab her with a safety Pin
Make her drink a mickey finn
I love you, Miss Hannigan

It's the hard-knock life for us
No one cares for you a smidge
When your in an orphanage

It's the hard-knock life
It's the hard-knock life
It's the hard-knock life!
