"Mmm Mmm Mmm Mmm" as written by and Brad Roberts....
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 him so hard

Mmm Mmm Mmm Mmm

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

Mmm Mmm Mmm Mmm
Mmm Mmm Mmm Mmm

But both the 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

Oh oh
Oh oh

    General CommentThis song sums up trying to explain yourself in life.

    These teenagers in the song are feeling awkward, trying to explain events that indeed happen to everyone but we are conditioned to feel embarrassed about.

    For example,

    A boy who was in a traumatic accident and going through it turned his hair white

    A girl who is embarrassed about the birthmarks (or bruises from abuse) on her body who "had always just been there"

    A boy who goes to church and thought nothing of it until he is old enough (a teen now) to see how strange it is and to be self-conscious about it. After all, they had "always just gone there"
