I spilt my coffee on my lap this morning
I laughed out loud it was funnier than a god damn joke
Cause hard times are the only times I’m having
I guess that’s why I’m gonna take another toke

Hard time
It’s a hard time
Hard time

Hard times in you head and hard times on the street
Hard times in your bed and on the lips of the people you meet
It’s hard getting up and it’s even harder coming down
We’ve seen hard times all around

Hard time
It’s a hard time
Hard time

Well we got hard times all up in this city
And down in your town I know it's not pretty
Cause hard times make it hard to get along
And I got hard times all up in this song

Hard time
It’s a hard time
Hard time

Matt Frye New York

"The troubadour Matt Frye, who is from North Carolina and who now lives in Brooklyn, can be found playing cafés in far corners of the borough, which has become as great an influence on his music as his home state has been. The collision between Southern ways and big-city life produces gritty, quirky songs, sung with a breezy lilt."
