They All Laughed - Trisha Yearwood

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 history 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?
