Lyrics:
The odds were a hundred to one against me
The world thought the heights were too high to climb
But
people from Missouri never incensed 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
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!
But 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
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?
