lyrics

Times are hard but we'll get through it
Baby, don't worry your pretty little head
It'll be alright
Take a chance, roll your dice
Tell me, what have you got to lose in this game we call life

Sitting out on the balcony
Little Sally's got a problem and she just can't see how to get around it and it's tearing her up inside
So she falls to her knees and cries
And then her
Dear old mother steps outside to see what's wrong and
Little Sally can't control her tears at all
She tells her mother that she wants to erase today
So she whispers into Sally's ear and says

Times are hard but we'll get through it
Baby, don't worry your pretty little head
It'll be alright
Take a chance, roll your dice
Tell me, what have you got to lose in this game we call life

Years later, Sally's got a baby girl
This little gift from God has shown her a whole new world
As her baby cries, she misses the old days but
She looks into her baby's eyes and says

Times are hard but we'll get through it
Baby, don't worry your pretty little head
It'll be alright
Take a chance, roll your dice
Tell me, what have you got to lose in this game we call life

Sally's baby girl's all grown up
Who knew parenthood could be so tough
When you're on your own
Just when life seems to get her down
Sally holds her head to the clouds
And remembers the words of her mother

Times are hard but we'll get through it
Baby, don't worry your pretty little head
It'll be alright
Take a chance, roll your dice
Tell me, what have you got to lose in this game we call life
Times are hard but we'll get through it
Baby, don't worry your pretty little head
It'll be alright
Take a chance, roll your dice
Tell me, what have you got to lose in this game we call life

about

Yanii Marie Harrisburg, Pennsylvania

My name is Yanii Marie, and I'm an aspiring musician. I live through my music and I don't know where I'd be without it. Putting my music out here, I only hope to help people through their own lives.
If you absolutely had to compare me to someone, your best bet would be Angel Taylor or India Arie.. They're both so amazing, and their music influences me greatly.
