Jessie J – Who's Laughing Now lyrics

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.

    Jessie j is basically saying that the people who made fun of her in the past and bullied her now think shes amazing and want to be best friends with her. Jessie j isn't taking any of this though and is saying to them, no you hated me back at school and just because I'm famous it doesn't mean that I'm going to love you and forget about the past.

    I think it means that was jessie j was a little girl and school she was bullied because she had an illness that caused her skin to go green so they all called her and alien and she is trying to say that they bullied her because she was different and no she is a world famous singer and they all love her and want to be her best friend!

    I think it means, when she was younger there was all of those people who bullied her and said she wouldn't get anywhere. But now they're probably not in a job, yet she is one of the best selling artists in the world! I love jessie j and the fact she got bullied is just so sad. The bullies should be sorry but I laugh at them now and jessie's laughing now as well. No matter what they say she will never like them, she's laughing now, not them! Love you jessie! Charlotte- age 12 (:

    I totally love this song! This song tells us about jessie's childhood days where she was bullied by other children. Now that she rocks in the music industry, they wanted to hang out with her. She knew very well why they were kind all of a sudden so she ignored them. The message of the song? Well, it encourages us to ignore those people who tried to convert our positive thoughts to negative. It doesn't even matter if they don't like you. Because if you try to please others to please yourself, you will not succeed at all. Instead, follow your dreams. Maybe someday, you'll never know that they are more useless than you are. :) thank you jessie for this awesome but meaningful song. : d
