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
And 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've got some bad news, sir
No one's laughing at God when there's a famine, fire or flood

But God can be funny
At a cocktail party when listening to a good God-themed joke
Or when the crazies say He hates us
And they get so red in the head you think they're 'bout to choke

God can 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 can be so hilarious
Ha ha
Ha ha

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've 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 can be funny
At a cocktail party when listening to a good God-themed joke
Or when the crazies say He hates us
And they get so red in the head you think they're 'bout to choke

God can 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 can 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
No one's laughing at God
We're all laughing with God

I think that this song means that people only pray to God when they are in some crisis or something and that people forget about God when everthing is going good. You should always be thankful I guess

I think it's saying we take God for granted. We laugh at him until the point where we need him. Then we pray for help because God just might be our last hope. But remember, God doesn't always help us.

Call it God, the universe, mother nature, the power of the human spirit, I really don't think it matters. What matters really is recognizing that there is some kind of connection between people. Something that empowers you to do good in the world.

i personally think that this song somwhat relates to Plato's agrument for believing in God, We are at no loss by beliving in him. Furthermore, i don't belive that Regina is at all 'mocking' God, or...

i think the reason god doesnt always help is because we dont always seek him, or we do so at times out of desperation using polished words, but with our hearts very distant from Him. god cant b mocked

@Chandler - We all ask if there's a God; so agnosticism is an acceptable starting point. To leave the question unanswered: living like it doesn't matter is dishonest - it's the most important question

think she has it right. Many people often aren't sure what they believe until a crisis, then they cry out to God. Strange that people who claim not to believe in God do this, & curse using his name...

what i get from this is that people laugh about God like he is a joke until they need Him what they dont realize is that they always need Him so if we are on Gods side we can laugh with him not at him

When something bad happens to someone they become so desperate that they begin to pray even if they are atheist but when everything's fine and dandy they don't seem to give a crap about God.My opinion
