The Lyrics

UK Social Services take kids off loving parents who just need a little help, whilst leaving others to die at the hands of truly abusive 'caregivers'. 'Nuff said.
ORPHANS
It's the hard-knock life for us!
It's the hard-knock life for us!
ANNIE
All us Auties
ORPHANS
We get tricked!
ANNIE
All us Aspies
ORPHANS
We get kicked!
ALL
It's the hard-knock life!
False charges of abuse, so
It's the hard-knock row we hoe!
ANNIE
Autistic parents
ORPHANS
Left to fail
ANNIE
Empty cradles
ORPHANS
Make them wail
ALL
It's the hard-knock life!
ANNIE
Don't if feel like the world is set against you?
KATE AND TESSIE
Don't it seem like there's never any light?
DUFFY AND JULY
And then when Legal Aid has been denied you
MOLLY AND PEPPER
That's why so many parents take their lives
ANNIE
No one's there to be a character witness!
They're not allowed... 'cos it's a secret court!
Then when your toddlers and bairns are all adopted!
ALL
You realise it's your kids who have been bought!
Ohhhh!
Full of heartache life!
Wish I had no life!
Full of sorrow life!
No tomorrow life!
MOLLY
Of my mum, I only dream
ANNIE
Your old mum, what's that? Who's she?
ALL
No one ever gives a shit
In the Social Services!
MOLLY
(Making a whistling sound and imitating Miss Hannigan)
That slapped cheek syndrome looks like abuse!
ORPHANS
Yank the whiskers from her chin
MOLLY
Pick that jumper up!
ORPHANS
Jab her with a safety Pin
MOLLY
Rotten parents!
ORPHANS
Make her drink a mickey finn
MOLLY
Right, at risk register!
Oh please, Miss Hannigan
MOLLY
(Whistle)
Get to work!
(Whistle)
Clean that bread bin!
(Whistle)
I said get to work!
ALL
It's the hard-knock life for us
It's the hard-knock life for us
Did you know we often wish
We were in an orphanage?
It's the hard-knock life
It's the hard-knock life
It's the hard-knock life!
