“It’s a hard knock life,” says Annie and the other children in the orphanage in this clip from the hit 1980s musical, Annie. You’ve got that right.

For Annie and her friends, sewing is but one of the many chores that they are forced to do. Around the 35 second mark, watch as the kids knock out a few stitches while dancing and singing about their woes. It’s a hard knock life indeed, but at least one can have fun in the process.

    This brought back memories for me. My daughter was a clogger and her team did a routine to this song. On stage w/brooms and buckets. Guess who made the costumes? They didn’t win the competition, but the costumes got good marks!!!
