You used to laugh about
Everybody that was hanging out
No, she was laughing at the bums, the same ones she was throwing dimes to. The line may seem somewhat ambiguous, as if it could be interpreted in multiple ways, but looked at in the context of the song the meaning is clear. It is ironic that she once laughed at the bums that she was throwing dimes at and now she is one of them.
