The odds were a hundred to one against meThe world thought the heights were too high to climbBut people from missouri never incensed meOh, I wasn’t a bit concernedFor from hist’ry I had learnedHow many, many times the worm had turnedThey all laughed at christopher columbusWhen he said the world was roundThey all laughed when edison recorded soundThey all laughed at wilbur and his brotherWhen they said that man could flyThey told marconiWireless was a phonyIt’s the same old cryThey laughed at me wanting youSaid I was reaching for the moonBut oh, you came throughNow they’ll have to change their tuneThey all said we never could be happyThey laughed at us and how!But ho, ho, ho!Who’s got the last laugh now? They all laughed at rockefeller centerNow they’re fighting to get inThey all laughed at whitney and his cotton ginThey all laughed at fulton and his steamboatHershey and his chocolate barFord and his lizzieKept the laughers busyThat’s how people areThey laughed at me wanting youSaid it would be, hello, goodbye.But oh, you came throughNow they’re eating humble pieThey all said we’d never get togetherDarling, let’s take a bowFor ho, ho, ho!Who’s got the last laugh? Hee, hee, hee!Let’s at the past laughHa, ha, ha!Who’s got the last laugh now?
