They All Laughed Redux

video
They All Laughed when the Yanks lost yesterday, but we'll be back and we'll be better:
Funny, when I made this a few years ago, Derek Jeter was the inspiration fior, "But, oh you came through." What happened Derek?
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?
