Hard Knocks University - Poem by Susan Sparks

Verse one:
Hard Knocks University
Where knowledge is high-priced
No professors or lecture halls
Hard lessons learned for life

Verse two:
Hard Knocks University
Don't haf to buy no books
Everything taught is by experience
No special favors for your looks

Hard Knocks University
When your done gettin' all dirty
Gettin' knocked to the nth Degree...
Hard Knocks University

Verse three:
Hard Knocks University
Where there are no lesson plans
All's learned with sweaty brow
And weathered, calloused hands

Repeat chorus:
