Lyrics:Jay-Z:
Take the baseline out, uh huh
Jigga uh huh uh huh uh huh

Annie
Sample:
It's the hard knock life for us (uh-huh)
It's the hard knock life for
us
Steada treated, we get tricked
Steada kisses, we get kicked
It's the hard knock
life!!

Verse 1:
>From standing on the corner poppin
To driving some of the
hottest cars New York has ever seen
To dropping some of the hottest verses rap has ever
heard
>From the dope spot, where the smoke lock
Fleeing the murder scene, you know me
well
>From nightmares of a lonely cell, my only hell
But since when ya'll niggas know me
to bail? Fuck Naw
Where all my niggas with the rubber grips, off shots
And if you with me
ma I rubbing your tits, and what not
I'm form the school of the hard knocks, we must
not
Let outsiders violate our blocks, and my plot
Let's stick up the world and split it
50-50, uh huh
Let's take the dough and stay real jiggy, uh huh
Let's sip the Cris and get
pissy pissy
Flow imminently like the memory of my nigga Biggie, baby!
You know it's hell
when I come through
The life and times of Shawn Carter nigga Volume 2, ya'll niggas get
ready

Annie Sample:
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!!

Verse 2:
I flow for those droned out
All my niggas locked in the
10 by 4 controlling the house
We live in hard knocks we don't take over we bomb
blocks
Burn 'em down and you can have 'em back daddy, I'd rather that
I flow for chicks
wishing they ain't have to strip to pay tuition
I see you vision mama, I put my money on the
longshots
All my ballers that born to glock
Now I'ma be on top whether I perform or
not
I went from lukewarm to hot
Sleeping on guitars and cots, the king size, dream machine
to grief
I've seen pies let the thing between my eyes analyze life's ills
Then I put it
down tight grill
I'm tight grill with the phony rappers you might feel we homeys
I'm like
still you don't know me, shit
I'm tight grill when my situation ain't improving
I'm trying
to murder everything moving, Feel Me!!

Annie Sample:
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 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!!

Verse 3:
I don't how to sleep, I gotta eat, stay on my toes
Gotta a lot
of beef so logically I prey on my foes
Hustlin still inside of me and as far as
progress
You be hardpressed to find another rapper hot as me
I gave you prophecy on my
first joint, and ya'll lamed out
Didn't really appreciate it till the second one came
out
So I stretched the game out, X'ed your name out
Put Jigga on top, and drop albums
non-stop for ya nigga

Annie Sample:
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 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!!

It's the hard knock life!!

It's the hard knock life
