Laughing With... Lyrics

no one laughs at god in a hospital
no one laughs at god in a war
no one's laughing at god
when they're starving or freezing
or so very poor

no one laughs at god when the doctor calls after some
routine tests
no one's laughing at god,
when it's gotten real late,
their kid's not back from that party yet.

no one laughs at god when their airplane
starts to uncontrollably shake
no one's laughing at god
when they see the one they love
hand in hand with someone else and they hope that
they're mistaken

no one laughs at god when the cops knock on their door
and they say "We got some bad news, sir."
no one's laughing at god when there's a famine,
fire, or a flood...

but god could be funny
at a cocktail party while listening to a good god-themed
joke
or when the crazies say he hates us and they get so red in
the head you'd think they're about to choke.
god could be funny
when told he'll give you money if you just pray the right way
and when presented like a genie who does magic like Houdini
or grants wishes like Jiminy Cricket and Santa Claus
god could be so hilarious
HaHa
HaHa

no one laughs at god in a hospital
no one laughs at god in a war
no one's laughing at god when they've lost all they got
and they don't know what for

no one laughs at god on the day they realize
that the last sight they'll ever see is a pair of
hateful eyes
no one's laughing at god when they're saying their
goodbyes

but god could be funny
at a cocktail party while listening to a good god-themed
joke
or when the crazies say he hates us
and they get so red in the head you'd
think they're about to choke.
god could be funny
when told he'll give you money if you just
pray the right way
and when presented like a genie who does magic like Houdini
or grants wishes like Jiminy Cricket and Santa Claus
god could be so hilarious

no one laughs at god in a hospital
no one laughs at god in
a war
no one laughs at god in a hospital no one laughs at god in
a war
no one laughing at god in a hospital
no one's laughing at god in a war
no one's laughing at god
when they're starving or freezing
or so very poor

no one's laughing at god
no one's laughing at god
no one's laughing at god, we're all laughing with
god.


And a nice review of the song
