It's a hard knock life for us,
It's a hard knock life for us,
'Stead of treated, we get tricked
'Stead of kisses, we get kicked
It's a hard knock life
Don't it feel like the wind is always howling?
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 you eyes get red and weepy
With the crying here, you'd think this place would sink
Oh
Empty-belly life
Rotten, smelly life
Full of sorrow life
No tomorrow life
Santa Clause we never see
Santa Clause, what's that? Who's he?
No one cares for you a smidge
When you're in an orphanage
It's a hard knock life,
It's a hard knock life
It's a hard knock life
