"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

    My Interpretationi've tried to look at this from every angle..i think if there is a meaning behind it, its pretty simple. the abuse seems plausible, but if the video is actually connected to the song i think it is as simple as this: the first boy and girl have issues, interpret what their problems are how you wish, for these purposes lets say its literal. the boy was in a serious accident which has obviously made him very scared, i guess metaphorically scared the pigment from his hair. the girl is marked all over her body and is bullied for it..
    i think the answer is all in the parents though, the first two couples who correspond wth the first two kids are smiling and clearly eager to see their kids perform, and at the end give a standing ovation..
    the third kids parents roll their eyes in impatience and look disappointed at him..
    so i guess the idea is..the first kids have had issues on the inside and out, they've had to overcome things, and although nothing is wrong with the first kid, he is worst off of all because he doesnt have the love, support and warmth of his parents.
    yeah?
    well i think its as simple as that
    of all the meaning i've tried to construct, i hope it is that one, its sad, but its a nice meaning.
