They 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 fly
They 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 tune

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 bar
