Lyrics

Hard Knock School

Written By: Yasheen Sewnarain

(Verse 1)
It’s never easy gaining some ground
With the whole world trying to put you down
You waste time tryn’a be just right
Never asking for who?
Is it for you?
Tossed around from crowd to crowd
Wrong colour, wrong shape, wrong sound
Finding a place to make yourself fit
Losing your hope bit by bit
Learning your lessons in hard knock style
Struggling to walk that extra mile
Encouraged by people with little value
Till you find out they lie, and let me tell you
That day does break you down
Break you down that it’ll be hard to find
Any reason to survive

(CHORUS)
Hey world you’ve had me pinned
Though I have committed no sin
Hey world you almost stomped me out
What is this all about
Hey world you’ve had it real tough on me
But I’ll have you know, I’ll be a legacy
Hey world I’m no fool
And I’m making it out of hard knock school

(Verse 2)
Jobless, homeless with no outlet
And still trying to make yourself fit
Into a place that’s just too small for you
Trapped in a place of coward-ess
You begin to feel oh so hopeless
Doing all this work, and all this labour
It was time to be sent a saviour
It takes patience though
You have to hang on
And hang on tight with all your might
You can’t give up
You must stay and fight
Cut the strings that tie you down
Hold your head high, like you wear a crown
Hope, dream big and believe
Push, pull and drag yourself through
Every day is a chance to start anew
Keep working hard and you will see
The world is not as scary as it seems

(CHORUS)
Hey world you’ve had me pinned
Though I have committed no sin
Hey world you almost stomped me out
What is this all about
Hey world you’ve had it real tough on me
But I’ll have you know, I’ll be a legacy
Hey world I’m no fool
And I’m making it out of hard knock school

(verse 3)
Use the pain as motivation
That’s the first and simplest rule
Focus and find your inspiration
Let it shine like a jewel
Hard work and dedication
That is your greatest tool
You’ve now reached graduation
And you’re making it out of hard knock school

(CHORUS)
Hey world you’ve had me pinned
Though I have committed no sin
Hey world you almost stomped me out
What is this all about
Hey world you’ve had it real tough on me
But I’ll have you know, I’ll be a legacy
Hey world I’m no fool
And I’m making it out of hard knock school
