The Lyrics

Someone told me recently that there is a new updated 2014 version of 'Annie', and I was thinking about how they could up date the songs to make it more relevant to today's society. This is how I'd update Annie's "It's The Hard-Knock Life" - all about social media, in particular Twitter. #Enjoy! (Let's get it trending).
It's a hashtag life, for us!

It's a hashtag life, for us!

Follow you and follow me!

Profile pictures, take your pick!

It's a hashtag life!

Want to get it trending

so, that everyone around me knows

Now take down your,


So you can impress them all!

It's the hashtag life!

Beware of trolls they're always prowling!

I can never think of anything to write.

Every day there's a tweet with something foul in,

But you know that your viewpoint's always write.

You should log out of Twitter when you're sleepy,

On social media you can say what you think,

But remember to not be very cheeky,

I can't connect, my modem's on the blink.


Flashing red light,

Flashing yellow light,

Flashing green light,

My modem is alive!

Virtual people tweeting me,

People that I never see,

Adjust my word count just a smidge,

Then I'll change my main image

It's a hashtag life!

Stay up until this tweet is trending or being retweeted

Put that print out in the bin!

Tweet a photo of my grin!

The one with my blue sweater in!

And now I'll retweet again!

I've done my work!

Now I'm through!


It's a hashtag life, for us!

It's a hashtag life, for us!

Now I've changed my main image!

Cropped the sides to make it fit!

It's a hashtag life!
It's a hashtag life!
It's a hashtag life!

It's a hashtag life!!!
