"Don't Laugh At Me" as written by Steve Seskin and Allen Shamblin....
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 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 them in the ground
Is the day I lost my mind
And right now I'm down to holdin'
This little cardboard sign, so

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, 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

    General CommentI was so touching when I listened to this song. I love the video and I love the way how he song. So attractive! For me, I love "In God's eyes we're all the same" this sentence most. So...Don't get our pressure from others' pain from now on! We will have our perfect wings someday, I wish.

    General Commentthis song is so sad it makes you want to go out and hug everyone that you have made fun of and apologize, it really makes you think about the way you treat people. It also makes you want to go punch the people who make fun of these people in their face :)...totally a great song

    General CommentBasically, I think he is saying that if you laugh at him or his kids, he will come to your house/school/place of employment and personally eat your soul.

    General CommentFor me, grades 5-8 were hell. I was constantly picked on and harassed. I heard this song for the first time when I was in the 6th grade and I cried because it touched me so much. I don't have those issues now, but this song will always be special to me.

    General CommentThis song makes me really depressed. I remember the first time I heard it, I had to sit down, because it overwhelmed me. I had been picking on people my whole life, and so to me this was a very powerful song.

    It makes me feel like I wasted so much time being mean...

    General CommentMr. No Name, I don't know if you will ever see this but I'm sorry this song makes you depressed. Instead of feeling bad for the people you picked on, be happy this song made you reconsider being mean to people. If it brought about a positive change in your life, you should feel good when hear it.
