    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 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?
