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 hoe!

(Annie)
Cotton blankets,

(Orphans)
'Steada of wool!

(Annie)
Empty Bellies

(Orphans)
'Steada of full!

(All)
It's the hard-knock life!

(Annie)
Don't it feel like the wind
is always howlin'?

(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...or if
you shrink!
No one dries when your eyes get
wet an' weepy!

(All)
From all the cryin' you would
think this place's 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 till this dump
shines like the top of the Chrysler building.
Kill kill.

(Orphans)
Yank the whiskers from her chin

(Molly)
Little pig droppings!

(Orphans)
Jab her with a safety Pin

(Molly)
Rotten orphans!

(Pepper)
Make her drink a Mickey Finn

(Molly)
Nobody loves you!

(Orphans)
We love you, Miss Hannigan!

(Molly)
(whistle)
Get to work!
(whistle)
Strip them beds!
(whistle)
Scrub them floors!
Polish my shoes!
And I mean, (whistles) 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 an orphanage

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