They All Laughed Lyrics
Ella Fitzgerald

The odds were a hundred to one against me

The world thought the heights were too high to climb

But people from Missouri never insenced 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

Tey all laughed when Edison recorded sound

They all laughed when at Wilbur and his brother when they said that man could fly

The 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 las 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 steambolt, 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?
