  • Oh what a night, oh what a night,
    Tears in my eyes, staring up at the sky in disbelief
    I've got a voice in my head, voice in my head" that's what it said
    All we really need is some comic relief

    But I'm afraid of not being able to laugh anymore (Oh)
    What's life going to become once we don't have anymore heroes?

    We don't know what the next man's going through,
    Wish I could say it in a plainer way
    I said we don't know, life reminds me of Robin Williams
    We've got to laugh the pain away
    We don't know what the next man's going through,
    Wish I could say it in a plainer way
    I said we don't know, life reminds me of Robin Williams
    We've got to laugh the pain away
    Laugh the pain away

    John Belushi knew you and me better than we knew ourselves
    And we all listen to Richard Pryor (Ya)
    They don't make Philip Seymour Hoffman often,
    Now he's one of the things we lost in the fire (Lord, yes)

    Now I'm afraid of not being able to laugh anymore (Oh)
    What's life going to become once we don't have anymore heroes?

    We don't know what the next man's going through,
    Wish I could say it in a plainer way
    I said we don't know, life reminds me of Robin Williams
    We've got to laugh the pain away
    We don't know what the next man's going through,
    Wish I could say it in a plainer way
    I said we don't know, life reminds me of Robin Williams
    We've got to laugh the pain away

    Chris Farley can you hear me?
    Bernie can you hear me?

    We don't know what the next man's going through,
    I said we don't know, life reminds me of Robin Williams
    We don't know what the next man's going through,
    Wish I could say it in a plainer way
    I said we don't know, life reminds me of Robin Williams
    We've got to laugh the pain away

    Phil Hartman can you hear me? (oh, yes)
    Robin can you hear me? Lyrics licensed and provided by LyricFind
