Yearwood, Trisha - They All Laughed 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 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?

Yearwood, Trisha They All Laughed Comments
  1. Madhu Soodan M

    This whole album is certainly not country music, it's like an opera music or jazz

  2. Mark Blackburn

    I awoke thinking of my two favorite Gershwin songs from Porgy and Bess – I LOVE(S) YOU PORGY and BESS, YOU IS MY WOMAN. I have Siriusly Sinatra satellite radio streaming 24/7 on my computer (best possible sound!) -- sure enough!

    I LOVE YA PORGY – Diana Ross

    It reminded me that not an hour passes on Sirius radio without at least one song by George Gershwin. Overnight – beginning last evening with FS and THEY CAN'T TAKE THAT AWAY FROM ME and continuing through to Diana's PORGY – a total of ten Gershwin tunes.

    This is fitting because – in terms of name recognition with music fans of all ages – Gershwin's name stands alone above all others in the pantheon of Great Songbook giants: Hence, “The Gershwin Prize” that's been awarded at the White House to great modern day composers.

    Yes, overnight – ten Gershwin tunes including

    TWO versions each of BUT NOT FOR ME (Edie Gorme and Bing Crosby)

    TWO takes on NICE WORK IF YOU CAN GET IT (Jack Jones & Fred Astaire with the Oscar Peterson Trio).
    SUMMERTIME by Joanie Sommers (and, most recently)
    Trisha Yearwood's THEY ALL LAUGHED.

    So. Which one of those would you prefer? Thought so. Me too: The most recently released Gershwin classic by Mrs. Garth Brooks. I love it that Trisha included the seldom-heard opening verse (“ . . . from history I have learned, how many, many times the worm has turned!“)

    Thanks, TrishaYcom for sharing this one! Celebrated this hour at -- "forums" -- "Siriusly Sinatra" -- MY FAVORITE VERSION -- YOURS TOO?
