lyrics It's A Hard Knock Life

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
Got no folks to speak of so
It's the hard knock row we how
Cotton blankets 'steada wool
Empty bellies 'steada full
It's a hard knock life
Don't it 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 putting 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 and weepy
From the crying you would think this place would sink oh oh 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
Kill kill
Yank the whiskers from her chin little pig droppings
Jab her with a safety pin
Rotten orphans
Make her drink a Mickey Finn
Nobody loves you
I love you Miss Hannigan
Get to work
Strip them beds
Scrub that floor
Polish my shoes
And I mean start now
It's the hard knock life for us
Mud in your eye
It's the hard knock life for us
Egg in your beer
No one cares for you a smidge
Hair on your chest
When you're in an orphanage
It's the hard knock life
It's the hard knock life
It's the hard knock life
The hard knock life
