[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 hoe

[ANNIE]
Cotton blankets

[ORPHANS]
'stead a wool

[ANNIE]
Empty Bellies

[ORPHANS]
'Stead a full!

[ALL]
It's a hard-knock life!

[ANNIE]
Don't it feel like the wind is always howl'n?

[KATE AND TESSIE]
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 your in an orphanage!
It's the hard knock life

[MOLLY]
(Making a whistling sound and imitating Miss Hannigan)
You're gonna scrub this dump till it shines
like the top of the Chrysler building.

[ORPHANS (Except Molly)]
Yank the whiskers from her face
Jab her with a safety Pin
Make her drink a Mickey Finn
I love you Miss Hannigan
(Molly)
Get to work!
scrub the floors
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
(Molly)

When your in an orphanage
It's a hard-knock life!
It's a hard-knock life!
It's a hard-knock life!
