Lyrics

[ORPHANS]
It's the hard-knock life for us!
It's the hard-knock life for us!
[ANNIE]
'Steada treated,
[ORPHANS]
We get tricked!
[ANNIE]
'Steada kisses,
[ORPHANS]
We get kicked!
[ALL]
It's the hard-knock life!
Got no folks to speak of, so,
It's the hard-knock row we how!
[ANNIE]
Cotton blankets,
[ORPHANS]
'Steada of wool!
[ANNIE]
Empty Bellies
[ORPHANS]
'Steada of full!
[ALL]
It's the hard-knock life!
[ANNIE]
Don't if feel like the wind is always howl'n?
[KATE AND TESSIE]
Don't it seem like there's never any light!
[DUFFY AND JULY]
Once a day, don't you wanna throw the towel in?
[MOLLY AND PEPPER]
It's easier than puttin' up a fight.
[ANNIE]
No one's there when your dreams at night get creepy!
No one cares if you grow...of if you shrink!
No one dries when your eyes get wet an' weepy!
[ALL]
From all the cryin' you would think this place is a sink!
Ohhhh!!!!!!!
Empty belly life!
Rotten smelly life!
Full of sorrow life!
No tomorrow life!
[MOLLY]
Santa Claus we never see
[ANNIE]
Santa Claus, what's that?
Who's he?
[ALL]
No one cares for you a smidge
When you're in an orphanage!
[MOLLY]
(Making a whistling sound and imitating Miss. Hannigan)
You'll stay up til this dump shines
like the top of the Chrysler Building.
[ORPHANS]
Yank the whiskers from her chin
Jab her with a safety Pin
Make her drink a mickey finn
I love you, Miss Hannigan
[MOLLY]
(whistle) Get to work!
(whistle) Strip them beds!
(whistle) I said get to work!
[ALL]
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
It's the hard-knock life
It's the hard-knock life
It's the hard-knock life!
