'They All Laughed' By Ella Fitzgerald

I heard this song for the first time from youtube. I felt something inside my heart moved by hearing the lyrics. This song is simply amazing and inspiring people. Ella did a really good job delivered the message of this song to the listeners. I realize that none of the great people in the world born as someone succesful. They have to struggle with faith and heard people laughing. But the point here is; never give up and keep build your dreams. Someday they'll understand that you are the one who could make anything possible by moving forward.

They All Laughed Lyrics
Artist(Band):Ella Fitzgerald

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 at 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."
And 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?"
