Don't Laugh At Me
I'm a little boy with glasses
the one they call the geek
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
And I wouldn't be out here beggin'
if I had enough to eat
And don't think that I don't notice
that our eyes never meet
I lost my wife and little boy
when someone crossed that yellow line
The day we laid 'em in the ground
is the day I lost my mind
And right now I'm down to holdin'
this little cardboard sign...so
I'm fat, I'm thin, I'm short, I'm tall
I'm deaf, I'm blind, hey, aren't we all?
