Mummy, they called me names, they wouldn't let me play,
I run home, sit and cry almost every day.
"Hey Jessica, you look like an alien,
With green skin, you don't fit in this playpen"

Oh, they pulled my hair, they took away my chair,
I keep it in and pretend that I didn't care.
"Hey Jessica, you're so funny,
You've got teeth just like Bugs Bunny"

Oh, so you think you know me now?
Have you forgotten how
You would make me feel when you dragged my spirit down?
But thank you for the pain, it made me raise my game,
And I'm still rising, I'm still rising, yeah!

So make your jokes, go for broke,
Blow your smoke, you're not alone,
But who's laughing now?
But who's laughing now?
So raise the bar, hit me hard,
Play your cards, be a star,
But who's laughing now?
But who's laughing now?

'Cause I'm in LA, you think I've made my fame,
If it makes us friends when you only really know my name.
"Oh Jessie, we knew you could make it.
I've got a track and I'd love for you to take it!"

So, now because I'm signed, you think my pocket's lined,
4 years down and I'm still waiting in the line.
"Oh Jessie, I saw you on YouTube,
I tagged old photos from when we was at school!"

Oh, so you think you know me now?
Have you forgotten how
You would make me feel when you dragged my spirit down?
But thank you for the pain, it made me raise my game,
And I'm still rising, I'm still rising, yeah!

So make your jokes, go for broke,
Blow your smoke, you're not alone,
But who's laughing now?
But who's laughing now?
So raise the bar, hit me hard,
Play your cards, be a star,
But who's laughing now?
But who's laughing now?

Jessie!
She broke out of the box!
Swallowed your pride, you got that ego cough.
Let the haters hate! You're like way too late!
(Look, look) See, I got a message from you: "HOLA! I'm proud of you!"
"Oh my god babe, your voice is like wow!"
My reply? Who's laughing now!

Oh, so you think you know me now?
Have you forgotten how
You would make me feel when you dragged my spirit down?
But thank you for the pain, it made me raise my game,
And I'm still rising, I'm still rising, yeah!

So make your jokes, go for broke,
Blow your smoke, you're not alone,
But who's laughing now?
But who's laughing now?
So raise the bar, hit me hard,
Play your cards, be a star,
But who's laughing now?
But who's laughing now?

So make your jokes, go for broke,
Blow your smoke, you're not alone,
But who's laughing now? Hey, Hey!
But who's laughing now? Hey, Hey!
Who's laughing?

So raise the bar, hit me hard,
Play your cards, be a star,
But who's laughing now? Who's laughing, laughing now?

Who's laughing, laughing now?
Who's laughing, laughing now?
Who's laughing, laughing now?

Who's laughing, laughing now?
Who's laughing, laughing now?
Who's laughing, laughing now?

    Many people tell that they have passed through this kind of situation when they have been at school! So bad... Pupils try to make their mates feel bad only because they're the best students, because they're not like them,they're bad looking or who knows. But the most important thing is that these people when they grow up become stronger than ever and smarter too. Everyone who has passed through this kind of situation,when he/she remembers it in the future he/she will laugh with these stories. Great job jessie j! You're the best... Love you ...

    Its makes me feel amazing because someone who was bullied, ignored the bullies and now she is an international star. It inspires you and encourages you to follow your dreams
