hard knock life

It's the hard-knock life for us!

It's the hard-knock life for us!

Steada treated - We get tricked!

Steada kisses - We get kicked!

It's the hard-knock life!

Got no home to speak of, so,
It's the hard-knock row we hoe!

Cotton blankets - steada wool
Empty bellies - steada full!

It's the hard-knock life!

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 cha wanna throw the towel in?

It's easier than puttin' up a fight!

No one's there when our dreams at night get creepy

No one cares if ya grow or if ya shrink

No one dries when your eyes get red and weepy

From the crying you would think this place would sink!

With many thanks to Loretta
for letting me tag along 
on Toon Tuesday
and lots o' love for Annie and Sandy!

"the sun coming out!"
Don't wait for tomorrow!

  4. Your cartoons are always fun to see. Even when they are full of tears and sorrow.

  5. I really enjoyed this. loved it.

  6. Exactly, no one out there cares if we grow or shrink, or cry, or have bad dreams. So it starts with each of us, we have to care about ourselves.

  8. Or A Daddy FatBucks. Or StarBucks.
