For everybody that sees you cryin, say you oughta laugh
You oughta laugh!

from Kanye West – Pinocchio Story Lyrics on Rap Genius

Meaning

Kanye, at the time was grieving the loss of his mother and people around him would only see the fact that he had money to buy pretty much anything he wanted so to them, it seemed that he didn’t have a right to be sad even though the only thing he really needed, money couldn’t bring back.
