DON'T LAUGH AT ME Lyrics - Peter, Paul & Mary

Review The Song (15)



I'm a little boy with glasses
The one they call a 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 beggar 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

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

Well, I'm fat, I'm thin, I'm short, I'm tall
I'm deaf, I'm blind, in a way we are all
I'm black, I'm white and I am brown
I'm Jewish, I'm Christian and I am Muslim
I'm gay, I'm lesbian, I'm American Indian
I'm very, very young, I'm quite aged
I'm quite wealthy, I'm very, very poor

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

My country 'tis of thee
Oh, sweet land of liberty
It is of thee that I sing

Made Me Cry Alot | Reviewer: Marcella | 12/4/13

My guidence counsler shows it to the class every year and always makes me shed my tears alot. I love the feeling when you just let out your feelings and pick up the song to cry all the time. By the way I am 10 years old and still have the emotions for this song it just wants to make me cry all the time and all the song describes me. Lonely, thin, short, doofus, clumsy and whatever the other kids call me by tricking me into really funny stuff for them but clumsy for me. Love this song and it makes me feel stronger.

I get bullied all the time && l LOVE this song it makes want cry :/

Really Helps | Reviewer: Call me jim | 4/11/12

I travel the country helping students to stand up, don't stand by when someone is being unfairly hurt. A major issue is making fun of some one's appearance. This song really helps me talk to the students about their need to like the way they look.

This song helped me and my little sister who is below | Reviewer: Sam's Big Sister | 2/18/12

I am the person below's big sister and that all is true and I am in year 10 and when a guy in my class called me one of the "Midget Girls" I said "You make me feel inecure because you are" and the guy was bewildered

this song helped a kid with almost no hope | Reviewer: Sam | 2/11/12

when I was in 1st 2nd 3rd and 4th grade I was bullied and one day a boy starting saying "Midget girl is dating ice boy!" and I told him "Shut up loudmouth Samuel" he was quite bewildered and then I sang "Dont get your plesure from my pain" and Samuel was quite bewildered and baffled so now in fifth grade I am no longer bullied

Touuhing | Reviewer: john | 10/31/10

This song cuts very deeply into my spirit. It is very humbling. I heard it for the first time about a month ago. I am a child of the 60's when we thought that there would be peace in the world. I am a Black male and I shed a tear each time I hear this. It will never grow old.

No offence | Reviewer: Caitlin Bishop | 10/22/10

I love this song, I was bullied at primary school and am in yr 9. We are studying song of protest at school and i got onto this site for this song, and I happened to notice, not all of the song is here.

After the 2nd verse, there is another chorus, then it goes;

I'm fat, I'm thin, I'm short, I'm tall
I'm deaf, I'm blind, hey, aren't we all

chorus

I'm fat, I'm thin, I'm short, I'm tall
I'm deaf, I'm blind, in a way, we are all
I'm black, I'm white, and I am brown
I'm Jewish, I'm Christian, and I am Muslim
I'm gay, I'm lesbian, I'm American Indian
I'm very, very young, I'm quite aged
I'm quite wealthy, I'm very very poor

chorus

My country 'tis of thee
Oh, sweet land of liberty
It is of thee that I sing

Thank you for the lyrics to "Don't laugh at me" song | Reviewer: Lyle Lexier | 11/22/09

My girlfriend introduced me to this song. It is her favourite song of Peter, Paul,and Mary. She really loves that group.

I am wanting to learn this melody, not just the lyrics. It must be a good song. Hopefully one day very soon I will have the chance to learn the song.

There is a lot of thuth in this song | Reviewer: Tom B. | 9/24/09

This is an excellent song and VERY well written. I am a parent of two special need children. When I heard this song, I thought of all the pain that my kids had to go through in and out of school. It is heart wrenching for me to realize that this song has so much truth in it. I think that school districts all over America should develope acceptance classes based off this song

Very Touching.. | Reviewer: Elizabeth | 4/27/09

The first time I heard this song was at my daughter's school assembly. It was so moving it makes the tears fall and gives me goosebumps every time. This song really covers all bases and should be broadcasted over the radio!

My daughter | Reviewer: Seri Moon | 9/22/08

A couple of years ago, my daughter and I saw Peter Yarrow performing this song. She sat in her chair and sang with him. He looked at her and her head was down facing her lap. I cried. For her bat mitzvah she and a friend are singing this song.

Great!!!!!!! | Reviewer: Chrisitina | 3/1/08

I am a highschool student and a man named Paul Failla came to talk to my grade. He played this wonderful song for us and I relized what the words really meant. Thank you for showing me and others about the true way of life.

Don't Laugh at Me | Reviewer: Anonymous | 7/19/04

When I purchased this book to use for a graduate education course, I never realized how far it would extend!

Thanks for providing me with the seeds of some great lessons. (And thanks just as much for years of incredible music!!! Glad I'm old enough to have always appreciated the lyrics and the music!!)

Thank You | Reviewer: Mary Ann Rohrer | 7/14/04

This song is very moving and oh the truth it tells! I've presented it to my principal (I work as a school nurse in the public schools in Shoreline Washington). Apparently there is a curriculum that goes along with this song. Thank you for addressing the need for a song that speaks with truth regarding our behavior to others. I am hoping that our music teacher will teach this song in her curriculum.
