Lyrics

[Tony Bennett]
They all laughed at Christopher Columbus
When he said "the world was round"

[Lady Gaga]
They all laughed when Edison recorded sound

[Tony Bennett]
They all laughed at Wilbur and his brother
When they said "man could fly"

[Lady Gaga]
They told Marconi
Wireless was a phony

[Both]
It's the same old cry

[Tony Bennett]
They laughed at me wanting you
Said I was reaching for the moon

[Lady Gaga]
But all you came through
Now they'll have to change their tune

[Tony Bennett]
They all said "we never could be happy"

[Lady Gaga]
They laughed at us and how

[Both]
Ho-ho-ho
Who's got the last laugh now?

[Tony Bennett]
They all laughed at Rockefeller Center
And now they're fighting to get in

[Lady Gaga]
They all laughed at Whitney and his cotton gin

[Tony Bennett]
They all laughed at Fulton and his steamboat
Hershey and his chocolate bar

[Lady Gaga]
Oh, Lord and his Lizzie
Kept the laughers busy

[Both]
That's how people are

[Tony Bennett]
They laughed at me wanting you
Said it would be "hello, goodbye"

[Lady Gaga]
But all you came through
Now they're eating humble pie

[Both]
They all said we'd never get together

[Tony Bennett]
Darling, take a bow

Ho-ho-ho
Who's got the last laugh?

[Lady Gaga]
Hee-hee-hee
Let's at the past laugh

[Tony Bennett]
Ha-ha-ha

[Both]
Who's got the last laugh now?

[Tony Bennett]
Ha-ha
