"They All Laughed" as written by Ira Gershwin and George Gershwin....
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!
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
Ho, ho, ho! Who's got the last laugh?
Hee, hee, hee! Let's get the last laugh
Ha, ha, ha! Who's got the last laugh now?
