ABBA – Should I Laugh Or Cry lyrics

He stands towering over me beside my bed

Losing his head

Tells me I must take him seriously

Droning on the usual way

He’s such a clever guy

And I wonder should I laugh or cry

He’s (he’s) dressed (dressed) in the striped pajamas that I bought

Trousers too short

Gives (gives) me (me) of his small philosophy

Carries on the way he does

And me I get so tired

And I wonder should I laugh or cry

High and mighty his banner flies

A fool’s pride in his eyes

Standin’ there on his toes to grow in size

(All I see is)

All I see is a big balloon

Halfway up to the moon

He’s wrapped up in the warm and safe cocoon

Of an eternal lie

So should I laugh or cry

Strange (strange) how (how) dangerously indifferent I have grown

Cold as a stone

No (no) more (more) pain where there was pain before

Far away he rambles on, I feel my throat go dry

And I wonder should I laugh or cry

High and mighty his banner flies

A fool’s pride in his eyes

Standin’ there on his toes to grow in size

(All I see is)

All I see is a big balloon

Halfway up to the moon

He’s wrapped up in a warm and safe cocoon

Of an eternal lie

So should I laugh or cry
