It's the hard knock life...
It's the hard knock life..

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 hoe
Cotton blankets ..steada wool

Empty bellies ..steada full!
It's the hard-knock life

Don't if feel like the wind is always howlin?
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 cries when your eyes get wet and weepy
From all the cryin' you would think this place would sink
Ohhh.. ohhh

Empty belly life! ((empty belly life))
Rotten smelly life! ((No no no no no))
Full of sorrow 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 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!

Don't if feel like the wind is always howlin?
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 cries when your eyes get wet and weepy
From all the cryin' you would think this place would sink

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

Steada treated,
We get tricked
Steada kisses,
We get kicked

Got no folks to speak of, so
It's the hard knock row we hoe
Cotton blankets ..steada wool

Empty bellies ..steada full!
It's the hard-knock life

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