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'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
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!
