'HARDER EVERY DAY!'
Lyrics
I grew up in the poverty of Naples, I had no shoes
(He had no shoes!)
I wandered far away to seek my fortune, nothing to lose
(He couldn't lose!)
I worked both night and day in many cities, to learn my trade
(He learnt his trade!)
And saved for my own restaurant, as this is, I'd got it made!
(He'd got it made)
Dah!
Prices! Prices! only go one way!
Taxes! Taxes! always more to pay!
I'm paying for the wages
(and we're paying for the breakages!)
A-making-ends-a-meet is getting harder every day!
Prices! Prices! only go one way!
Taxes! Taxes! always more to pay!
I'm paying for the wages
(and we're paying for the breakages!)
A-making-ends-a-meet is getting harder every day!
The workers always want-a more-a wages, or they will go
(Or else we'll go)
I haven't made a profit now for ages.... Well, very low
(His profit's low???)
The Health Inspector's rules and regulations are such a weight
(He's in a state!)
Each time they come they bring me aggravations, I'm losing weight
(He's losing weight???)
Prices! Prices! only go one way!
Taxes! Taxes! always more to pay!
I'm paying for the wages
(and we're paying for the breakages!)
A-making-ends-a-meet is getting harder every day!
Prices! Prices! only go one way!
Taxes! Taxes! always more to pay!
I'm paying for the wages
(and we're paying for the breakages!)
A-making-ends-a-meet is getting harder every day!
A-making-ends-a-meet is getting harder every day!
A-making-ends-a-meet is getting harder every day!
(Harder every day!)
