    "They All Laughed" Lyrics

    Andre Previn

    The odds were a hundred to one against me
    The world thought the heights were too high to climb
    But people from missouri never incensed me
    Oh, I wasn't a bit concerned
    For from hist'ry I had learned
    How many, many times the worm had turned

    They all laughed at christopher columbus
    When he said the world was round
    They all laughed when edison recorded sound
    They all laughed at wilbur and his brother
    When they said that man could fly

    They told marconi
    Wireless was a phony
    It's the same old cry
    They laughed at me wanting you
    Said I was reaching for the moon
    But oh, you came through
    Now they'll have to change their tune

    They all said we never could be happy
    They laughed at us and how!
    But ho, ho, ho!
    Who's got the last laugh now?

    They all laughed at rockefeller center
    Now they're fighting to get in
    They all laughed at whitney and his cotton gin
    They all laughed at fulton and his steamboat

    Hershey and his chocolate bar

    Ford and his lizzie
    Kept the laughers busy
    That's how people are
    They laughed at me wanting you
    Said it would be, "hello, goodbye."
    But oh, you came through
    Now they're eating humble pie

    They all said we'd never get together
    Darling, let's take a bow
    For ho, ho, ho!
    Who's got the last laugh?
    Hee, hee, hee!
    Let's at the past laugh
    Ha, ha, ha!
    Who's got the last laugh now?"
