Hard Knocks - Marc Broussard

Didn't take nothing that I didn't need

'Cause they didn't offer classes in what I want to be

They didn't offer manhood, responsibility

Had to learn it the hard way, earned my degree in the street

Graduated from Hard Knocks, got my education

Hard knocks, out in the street

Can't bust through that ceiling without feeling the burn

And I ain't got nothing that I did not earn

Chasing that mighty dollar 'stead of hitting the books

Studying Donny and Stevie, learned to sail the hooks

I graduated from Hard Knocks

The bumps and the bruises to prove it, oh

Hard Knocks, summa cum laude

Hard Knocks, oh

Hard Knocks, c'mon

Had a real good teacher named Mr. Life

Didn't teach no chemistry but he taught me how to fight

Didn't teach biology but I learned it from the birds and the bees

Said stay close to your friends, even closer to your enemies, oh

Hard Knocks

Graduated from Hard Knocks

Bumps and the bruises to prove it, oh!

Hard knocks

Hard Knocks, gotta bring it on down, c'mon

Said these streets keep calling me

Don't know what it is

Is it the thrill that I seek? I don't know!

Is it the night yeah, night yeah? Or the sound of the city?

Whatever it is these streets keep calling me day and night

I can't get 'em off, c'mon

Said they're calling me, calling me, calling me

They're calling me, calling me, calling

Calling me, calling me, calling me

Calling me, calling me, yeah yeah

Calling me, calling me, yeah

Calling me, yeah yeah

Calling me, calling me, calling me

Calling me, yeah yeah
