​Should I Laugh Or Cry

This song is by ABBA and appears on the box set Thank You for the Music (1994).

Original video
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
Then I wonder should I laugh or cry

He's (he's) dressed (dressed)
In the striped pajamas that I bought
Trousers too short
Gives (give) 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
Standing there on his toes
To grow in size (all I see is)
All I see is a big balloon (big balloon)
Halfway up to the moon (halfway 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
Then I wonder should I laugh or cry


High and mighty his banner flies
A fool's pride in his eyes
Standing there on his toes
To grow in size (all I see is)
All I see is a big balloon (big balloon)
Halfway up to the moon (halfway to the moon)
He's wrapped up
In the warm and safe cocoon
Of an eternal lie
So should I laugh or cry
