lyrics

We all know the song about the tears of a clown
Behind the painted smile he’s really wearing a frown
Hides a broken heart behind a greasepaint mask
The show must tumble on no matter he’s downcast

Oh-ho, it’s a hard knock life
Oh-ho, it’s trouble and it’s strife
Oh-ho, it cuts you like a knife
You gotta toughen up boy and face up to life

Rip that heart from offa your sleeve
Smile that smile as if you believe
Play the clown and dance to deceive
You gotta toughen up boy - life is such a wheeze, oh-ho

We all got the shining and the Nicholson smile
Life is a circus artiste dripping with guile
We all want the limelight and the ringmaster’s hat
But Hotel California’s where the party’s at

Oh-ho, it’s a hard knock life
Oh-ho, it’s trouble and it’s strife
Oh-ho, it cuts you like a knife
You gotta toughen up boy and face up to life, oh-ho

Rip that heart from offa your sleeve
Smile that smile as if you believe
Play the clown and dance to deceive
You can check out any time
But you can never leave

Oh-ho, it’s a hard knock life
Oh-ho, it’s trouble and it’s strife
Oh-ho, it cuts you like a knife
You gotta toughen up boy and face up to life, oh-ho
