REGINA SPEKTOR IS LAUGHING WITH GOD

Regina Spektor’s lead single, Laughing With (off the singer/songwriter’s fifth album), is absolutely breathtaking.


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 someone else and they hope they’re mistaken

No one laughs at God when the cops knock on their door
And they say we got some bad news, sir
No one’s laughing at God when there’s a famine, fire or flood

But God can be funny
At a cocktail party when listening to a good God-themed joke
Or when the 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 hilarious
Ha ha
Ha ha
