Explain [Verse 1]
Hard times spreading just like the flu
You know I caught it just like you
The prices going up, the dollars down
You got me fallin' to the ground
Turn around, get ready, check out the time
Get ready all people for the future shock
Hard times (Hard times)
Hard times (Hard times)
To the bridge

Hard times people of the planet
Times are tough, tough is granted
Hard times coming to the town
Get ready cause you know, we're gonna throw down
I'm gonna go out there and get the skills
My life's been down and I need a thrill
Hard times (Hard times)
Hard times (Hard times)
To the bridge

Hard times's got my pockets all in change
I tell ya what, it don't have my brains
Will I ever-ever-ever reach my ...
We need that dollar every day of the week
Hard times you know, it's a natural trip
I'm gonna keep about it, so we'll not slip
Hard times (Hard times)
Hard times (Hard times)
To the bridge

Hard times is nothing new or mean
I'm gonna use my strong mentality
Like the cream of the crop and the crop of the cream
Beating hard times, that is my dream
Hard times in life, hard times in death
I'm gonna keep on fighting till my very last breath
Hard times (Hard times)
Hard times (Hard times)
To the bridge
