Gershwin so Vita

(Teristimewa untuk Afri, yg selalu mengingatkan "teruslah bermimpi!!" dan selalu bilang "kalau orang g berani bermimpi, g akan ada pesawat terbang!".
JADI, betapapun besarnya impianku (it's never been this big!), & bagaimanapun semua tertawa mendengarnya, aku terus-terus-terus-terus berusaha dan berdoa utk mencapainya.. Amin.)

LAGU ini sebenernya sdh lama ada & jadi favorit (maklum, semua lagu Stacey Kent jadi favorit,, bisa diputer ulang-ulang-ulang-ulang sampe Stacey-nya memble :D). Judulnya They All Laughed, yg tiba2 jadi favorit lagi kemarin.. Nggak 100% Vita banget sih, krn liriknya agak sinis,,, tp sejalan dg misiku,,, (& Afri,,),, really,, there's nothing we can not do, be, or have!

They All Laughed (George & Ira Gershwin)--> atau lengkapnya setel di sini

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 misery
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?
He, hee, hee!
Let’s at the past laugh
Ha, ha, ha!
Who’s got the last laugh now?
