WHO HAS THE LAST LAUGH NOW?
(Fred Astaire, from Shall We Dance)

The odds were a hundred to one against him
The world thought the heights were too high to climb
But people from Missouri never incensed him
Oh, he wasn't a bit concerned
For from hist'ry we have learned
How many, many times the world 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 Obama
his ideas of change were phony
It's the same old cry
They laughed at him wanting our votes
Said he was reaching for the moon
But oh, how we came through
Now they'll have to change their tune
They all said his base was just too scrappy
They laughed at us and how!
But ho, ho, ho!
Who's got the last laugh now?
