Don't Laugh At Me

(Words & Music by Steve Seskin & Allen Shamblin
From the Dennis Warner CD “Journey of the Soul”)

 

 

I'm a little boy with glasses the one they call the geek

I'm a little girl who never smiles 'cause I've got 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 cripple on the corner you've passed me on the street

I wouldn't be here with my hand out if I had enough to eat

And don't think that I don't notice our eyes never meet

 

I lost my wife and little baby when someone crossed that yellow line

The day we laid them in the ground is the day I lost my mind

Now I'm down to holdin' this little cardboard sign...So

 

*CHORUS*

 

(BRIDGE)     

            I'm fat, I'm thin, I'm short, I'm tall

            I'm deaf, I'm blind, hey aren't we all...

 

            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...
