Don't Laugh at Me
By Peter, Paul and Mary

"I'm the boy with glasses
The one they call a geek
A little girl who never smiles
'Cause I have 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 trying
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 take 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're all

I'm black, I'm white
I'm Jewish, I'm Christian
And I'm a Muslim

I'm gay, I'm lesbian
I'm American Indian
I'm very, very young
I'm quite aged

I'm quite well fed
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, this of thee,
Oh, sweet land of liberty
It is of thee, that I sing."
