ANNIE From the Broadway Musical MAYBE ANNIE Maybe far away Or maybe real nearby He may be pouring her coffee She may be straighting this tie! Maybe in a house All hidden by a hill She's sitting playing piano, He's sitting paying a bill! Betcha they're young Betcha they're smart Bet they collect things Like ashtrays, and art! Betcha they're good -- (Why shouldn't they be?) Their one mistake Was giving up me! So maybe now it's time, And maybe when I wake They'll be there calling me "Baby"... Maybe. Betcha he reads Betcha she sews Maybe she's made me A closet of clothes! Maybe they're strict As straight as a line... Don't really care As long as they're mine! So maybe now this prayer's The last one of it's kind... Won't you please come get your "Baby" ANNIE AND ORPHANS Maybe IT'S THE HARD-KNOCK LIFE ORPHANS It's the hard-knock life for us! It's the hard-knock life for us! ANNIE 'Steada treated, ORPHANS We get tricked! ANNIE 'Steada kisses, ORPHANS We get kicked! ALL It's the hard-knock life!

MOLLY AND PEPPER It's easier than puttin' up a fight. ANNIE No one's there when your dreams at night get creepy! No one cares if you grow...of if you shrink! No one dries when your eyes get wet an' weepy! ALL From all the cryin' you would think this place's a sink! Ohhhh!!!!!!! Empty belly life! Rotten smelly life! Full of sorrow life! No tomorrow life! MOLLY Santa Claus we never see ANNIE Santa Claus, what's that? Who's he? ALL No one cares for you a smidge When you're in an orphanage! MOLLY (Making a whistling sound and imitating Miss.

Lucky me! Look at what I'm dripping with Little girls How I hate Little shoes Little socks And each little sloomer I'd have cracked Years ago If it weren't for my Sense of humor Some day I'll step on their freckles Some night I'll straighten their curls Send a flood Send the flu Anything that You can do To little girls Some day I'll land in the nut house With all the nuts and the squirrels There I'll stay Until the prohibition of Little girls.
