                                             "Laughing with"

                         No one laughs at God in a hospital
                         No one laughs at God in a war
                         no one's laughing at God
                         when they're starving or freezing or so very poor

                        No one laughs at God
                        when the doctor calls after some routine tests
                        No one's laughing at God
                        When it's gotten real late
                        And their kid's not back from the party yet

                       No one laughs at God
                       when their airplane starts to uncontrollably shake
                       No one's laughing at God
                       When they see the one they love, hand in hand with some one else
                       And they hope that they're mistaken

                       But God can be funny
                       At a cocktail party when listening to a good God-themed joke, or
                       when they crazies say He hates us
                       And they get so red in the head you think they're 'bout to choke
                       God can be funny
                       When told he'll give you money if you just pray the right way
                        And when presented like a genie who does magic like Houdini
                       Or grants wishes like Jiminy Cricket and Santa Claus
                       God can be so funny
                       Ha ha
