"Laughing" as written by David Greenfield, Brian John Duffy, Jean Jacques Burnel and Hugh Alan Cornwell....
You could have wasted yourself in a plane in the air
But lead poisoning from your daddy to me just didn't seem fair
Committing the crime of taking your time
You're laughing we're carving
Your name in a tree for the kids to see
We hear ya, we fear your ecstasy
You paid the penalty
You could have wasted away on the floor of a hotel room
With the hand of a working girl to lead you into your tomb
Committing the crime of taking your time
You're laughing we're carving
Your name in a tree for the kids to see
We hear ya, we fear your ecstasy
You paid the penalty
You could have hung your hat on a pretender's lust for fame
But you refused to lay it down
It took your old man to live in shame
For committing the crime of taking your time
You're laughing we're carving
Your name in a tree for the kids to see
We hear ya, we fear your ecstasy
You paid the penalty
