She rode through the streets on her two wheeled bike,
Bags full of clothes gonna take a ride,
To the kids in town,
Pass the goods around
Oooh, Oooh, hard-time Hannah

Down to the food bank get some grub,
Take it to the old folks, give a hug to those she finds,
She’s got a heart so kind
Oooh, Oooh, hard-time Hannah

Hard time Hannah you’ve had it rough,
Life on the streets didn’t toughen you up
Hard time Hannah, you won’t be beat,
By the dirt and the pain of these cold city streets

Down to the Sally-Ann find a dress
Take it to the school for the girl with less,
That lived next door, her grads at four
Oooh, Oooh, hard-time Hannah

Off to the shelter got to give a smile,
Moms and the kids, they’ve been waitin’ a while,
But they know she’ll come, with jokes and gum.
Oooh, Oooh, hard-time Hannah

Hard time Hannah you live here too
You know what its like, what’s a girl to do?
Help where you can and give from you cup
You might not win, but you wont’ give up

Off to the soup kitchen, grab a bite ,
See if her friends all made it through the night
She hopes they did, ‘specially that kid
Oooh, Oooh, hard-time Hannah

Night is fallin’ got to get back home,
All is well for those who roam
These city streets, with less to eat than
Oooh, ooohh Hard time Hannah

Hear the words of the preacher man,
Says she sings with the angel band
She died last night, without a fight
Oooh, Oooh, hard-time Hannah

Now who’s to say who’s rich or poor,
Those with nothing can give much more
When hearts are free, drop the scales and see like
Oooh, Oooh, hard-time Hannah

World was a better place with Hard time Hannah
Who will replace Hard-Time Hannah?
