Don’t Laugh at me

Peter Paul & Mary

Don’t Laugh at me da Songs of Conscience, Peter Paul & Mary
Don’t Laugh at me, testo
I'm a little boy with glasses
The one they call a geek
A little girl who never smiles
'Cause I have braces on my teeth
And I know how it feels to cry myself to sleep
I'm that kid on every playground
Who's always chosen last
A single teenage mother
Tryin' to overcome my past
You don't have to be my friend
But is it too much to ask

Don't laugh at me
Don't call me names
Don't get your pleasure from my pain
In God's eyes we're all the same
Someday we'll all have perfect wings
Don't laugh at me

I'm the beggar on the corner
You've passed me on the street
And I wouldn't be out here beggin'
If I had enough to eat
And don't think I don't notice
That our eyes never meet

Don't laugh at me
Don't call me names
Don't get your pleasure from my pain
In God's eyes we're all the same
Someday we'll all have perfect wings
Don't laugh at me

I'm fat, I'm thin, I'm short, I'm tall
I'm deaf, I'm blind, yes, I think in a way, we're all
I'm black, I'm white and I am brown
I'm Christian, I'm Jewish, and I am Muslim
I'm gay, I'm lesbian, I'm American Indian
I'm very, very young, I'm quite aged
I'm very wealthy, I'm very, very poor

Don't laugh at me
Don't call me names
Don't get your pleasure from my pain
In God's eyes we're all the same
Someday we'll all have perfect wings
Don't laugh at me

My country ‘tis of thee
Oh, sweet land of liberty
It is of thee that I sing
Don’t Laugh at me, note e significato

"Don't laugh at me" è stata scritta da Steve Seskin e musicata da Allen Shamblin.
