Verse:
Bbm                  Fm
   No one laughs at God in a hospital
Eb                                   Ab
   No one laughs at God in a war
          Fm
No one’s laughing at God
              Cm                     Db
When they’re starving or freezing or so very poor

Verse - same as first -:
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

Verse - same as first -:
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 that they're mistaken

Verse - same as first -:
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

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

Verse - same as first -:
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

Verse - same as first -:
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

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