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 know!

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.

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!
