Hard Times
-----------------------------------

(chorus)
It's hard times
Hard times
Hard times
Real hard times

When the college professor has no class
And the quarterback would rather pass
And the pump jockey complains of gas
It's hard times
Hard times

When the taxi driver he can't hack it
And the tennis player can't stand the racket
When allied refuse to pack it

(chorus)

When the elevator can't find the floor
And the doorman he can't find the door
When they give to the rich what they take from the poor
It's hard times

Seems your money's gone before it's spent
If you're not busted then you're badly bent
To give it away doesn't make any sense

(chorus)

Now grandma forgets how to knit
And the wise man lost his wit
And my tailor feels unfit
It's hard times
Real hard times

When the fashion model's lost her poise
And Santa Claus smashes all the toys
When boys could be girls
And girls could be boys

(chorus)

When the clock on the wall got no times for jokes
And Kreskin says it's all a hoax
When the surgeon general chain smokes
It's hard times
Real hard times
When the truck driver don't wanna truck
And the hockey player won't touch the puck
And the rock musician don't wanna fool around
(chorus)
(chorus)

I was talking to this lady the other day
And she was telling me ...
