Lyrics for Mmm Mmm Mmm Mmm by Crash Test Dummies:

Verse 1
Once there was this kid who
Got into an accident and couldn't come to school
But when he finally came back
His hair had turned from black into bright white
He said that it was from when
The cars had smashed so hard

Chorus
Mmm Mmm Mmm Mmm
Mmm Mmm Mmm Mmm

Verse 2
Once there was this girl who
Wouldn't go and change with the girls in the change room
But when they finally made her
They saw birthmarks all over her body
She couldn't quite explain it
They'd always just been there

Chorus
Mmm Mmm Mmm Mmm
Mmm Mmm Mmm Mmm

Mmm Mmm Mmm Mmm
Mmm Mmm Mmm Mmm

Bridge
But both girl and boy were glad
'Cause one kid had it worse than that

Verse 3
'Cause then there was this boy whose
Parents made him come directly home right after school
And when they went to their church
They shook and lurched all over the church floor
He couldn't quite explain it
They'd always just gone there

Chorus
Mmm Mmm Mmm Mmm
Mmm Mmm Mmm Mmm

Mmm Mmm Mmm Mmm
Mmm Mmm Mmm Mmm

Song Facts

Mmm Mmm Mmm Mmm was released in October 1993 as one of the singles from God Shuffled His Feet. Through three seemingly disconnected stories, it explores themes of childhood loneliness and isolation, stemming from children’s difficulty in understanding and accepting strange things.

It became (one of) Crash Test Dummies' most successful song, peaking at the top of many charts in Australia, Germany, and the U.S. and hitting the top five spots in countries like the U.K. The song was so popular that even Weird Al Yankovic did a parody titled Headline News.
