    Every day held a new surprise
    I watched the hunger burning in my sister's eyes
    The paste-board shack we called a home
    Would haunt me in my dreams
    'Cause there's nothing soft about hard times
    There's nothing soft about hard times

    We never knew anything groovy
    A dime meant bread and not a movie
    The muscles that controlled my smile were rarely ever used
    'Cause there's nothing soft about hard times
    There's nothing soft about hard times

    Chorus:
    I had to go 'cause I could see
    I wasn't meant for poverty
    The family ties were broken soon
    I went off to find the moon

    So I sit on a bench in Jackson Square
    I drink my wine and I breathe the midnight air
    Tomorrow I'll just hit the street and bum another dime
    'Cause there's nothing soft about hard times
    There's nothing soft about hard times

    Chorus:
    I had to go 'cause I could see
    I wasn't meant for poverty
    The family ties were broken soon
    I went off to find the moon

    So I sit on a bench in Jackson Square
    I drink my wine and I breathe the midnight air
    Tomorrow I'll just hit the street and bum another dime
    'Cause there's nothing soft about hard times
    There's nothing soft about hard times

    There's nothing soft about
    No, no, no, no hard times
    There's nothing soft about hard times
    No, no, no, no those hard times
    There's nothing soft about hard times
    I'm going to tell you about the hard times
    There's nothing soft about hard times
    No, no, no, no hard times
