Lyrics

Don't it feel like the wind is always howling?
Don't it feel like there's never any light?
Once a day, don't you wanna throw the towel in?
It's easier than putting up a fight

It's the hard knock life for us
It's the hard knock life for us
Instead of treated, we get tricked
Instead of kissed, we get kicked
It's the hard knock life for us
It's the hard knock life for us
Instead of treated, we get tricked
Instead of kissed, we get kicked
It's the hard knock life

We live in hard knocks
We don't take over, we borrow blocks
I see your vision mama
I put my money on the longshots
Now I'ma be on top
Whether I perform or not
I went from lukewarm to hot
Sleepin' on futons and cots, yeah

No one's there if your dreams at night get creepy
No one cares if you grow or if you shrink
No one dries your eyes when you're wet and weepy
From all the crying you would think this place's a sea, yeah

It's the hard knock life for us
It's the hard knock life for us
Instead of treated, we get tricked
Instead of kissed, we get kicked
It's the hard knock life for us
It's the hard knock life for us
Instead of treated, we get tricked
Instead of kissed, we get kicked
It's the, it's the, it's the hard knock life
