“It’s the Hard-Knock Life” from Annie

[ORPHANS]
It’s a hard-knock life for us!
It’s a hard-knock life for us!

[ANNIE]
‘Stead of treated

[ORPHANS]
We get tricked!

[ANNIE]
‘Stead of kisses

[ORPHANS]
We get kicked!

[ALL]
It’s a hard-knock life!

Got no folks to speak of, so
It’s the hard-knock row we ho
Cotton blanket
‘stead a wool
Empty Bellies
‘Stead a full!
It’s a hard-knock life!

[ANNIE]
Don’t it feel like the wind is always howlin?

[KATE AND TESSA]
Don’t it seem like there’s never any light!

[ANNIE and MOLLY]
Once a day, don’t you wanna throw the towel in?

[PEPPER,JULY]
It’s easier than putting up a fight

[ANNIE]
No one’s there when your dreams at night are creepy!
No one cares if you grow or if you shrink!
No one dries when your eyes get wet and weepy

[ALL]
From the crying you would think this place’s would 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 a orphanage
It’s the hard knock life

[MOLLY]
(Making a whistling sound and imitating Miss Hannigan)
You’ll stay up till this dump shines like the top of the Chrysler Building

[ORPHANS (Except Molly)]
Yank the whiskers from her chin
Jab her with a safety Pin
Make her drink a Mickey Finn
I love you Miss Hannigan

[Molly]
Get to work!
Strip them beds!
Scrub that floor!
Polish my shoes!
And I mean
Start
NOW!

[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 a orphanage
It’s The Hard Knock Life!
It’s the Hard Knock Life!
IT’S THE HARD KNOCK LIFE!!!
