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 the 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 or fire or flood

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

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

The wisdom of this world is nonsense in God's sight. That's why Scripture says, God catches the wise in their cleverness

I love Spektor, but this song frustrates me. Has no one ever heard of Atheists in Foxholes? There are plenty of people who turn to family and friends for help in a pinch rather than pray.

What a beautiful song, it really hits home on a lot of levels...we tend to minimalize God's importance in our lives until we encounter a crisis and have nowhere else to turn.

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

It's a beautiful song. I agree with the idea most of you have put forth, that God only is recognised in situations where people are forced to turn to some kind of faith.

I think what really sums up this song for me is the very last line. God's nbuts very complicated idea, but there's so many people who manipulate others through God, or poke fun at him.
