We are the ones from the school of hard knock
The ones who look up to the goddess of luck
Our teenage years was spent in the gutter
Starve of the love of a mother
.
We are the ones from the school of hard knocks
Schooled in the ghetto
Three square meal is a miracle
The hope of another day is fickle
.
We are the ones from the school of hard knocks
Who knows no peace like the hands of a clock
No one to rely on like a rock
To survive we have to be hard at work
.
We are the ones from the school of hard knock
The ones who are rejected by the society
For choosing a fate that is filthy
to survive we have to be witty
.
We are the ones from the school of hard knock
The ones whose life is crock
Our plight they mock
Cause we refuse to be their flock
.
We are the ones from the school of hard knock
we have no other means but to toil
We will continue to use our blood, sweat and tears
to wet the soil
Until we eventually soar
