Laughing with

Von der neuen Regina Spektor „far“.

 

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 start 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 that 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 or 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
a nd 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

No one laughs at God in a hospital
. No one laughs at God in a war
. No one’s laughing at God
 when they’ve lost all they’ve got
 and they don’t know what for. No one laughs at God on the day they realize
 that the last sight they’ll ever see is a pair of hateful eyes
. No one’s laughing at God when they’re saying their goodbyes.

But God can be funny
 at 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.

No one laughs at God in a hospital. 
No one laughs at God in a war
. No one laughs at God in a hospital
. No one laughs at God in a war
. No one laughing at God in hospital. 
No one’s laughing at God in a war
. No one’s laughing at God when they’re starving or freezing or so very poor.
No one’s laughing at God
. No one’s laughing at God
. No one’s laughing at God. We’re all laughing with God.

Spitzen Tipp von Naked Pastor. Hatte nämlich gar nicht mitbekommen, dass Regina ein neues Album rausgebracht hat.

  1. […] wäre kaum eine Zeile wert, wäre da nicht noch Regina Spektor (via Pastor Sandy), die dem Narzissmus und der Melancholie der Kollegen den Spiegel vorhält. Es ist das zweifelhafte […]

    Hatte ich schonmal erzählt, dass Regina vor ein paar Jahren mal in meinem Bett gesclafen hat? Leider ohne mich. Aber ich habe ihr ein Schokobonbon auf’s Kopfkissen gelegt. A very determinded lady, schon damals.
