They All Laughed lyrics

They All Laughed

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 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 Fulton and his steamboat
Hershey and his choc'late bar.
Ford and his Lizze
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 now

Just imagine someone,
Waiting at the cottage door.
Where two hearts become one
Who could ask for anything more.

Loving one who loves you
and then taking that bow

It's nice work if you can get it
And if you get it,
Won't you tell me how!

Who's got the last laugh now!
