Lyrics 

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

Once there was this girl who

Wouldn’t go and change with the girls in the change room

And when they finally made her

They saw birthmarks all over her body

She couldn’t quite explain it

They’d always just been there

Mmm mmm mmm mmm

Mmm mmm mmm mmm

Mmm mmm mmm mmm

Mmm mmm mmm mmm

But both girl and boy were glad

‘Cause one kid had it worse than that

‘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

Mmm mmm mmm mmm

Mmm mmm mmm mmm

Mmm mmm mmm mmm

Mmm mmm mmm mmm

Ah

Ah

Ah

Ah
