Headline News Lyrics


Once, there was this kid who
Took a trip to Singapore and brought along his spray paint
And when he finally came back
He had cane marks all over his bottom
He said that it was from when
The warden whacked it so hard

Mm mm mm mm, mm mm mm mm, ah

Once there was this girl who
Swore that one day she would be a figure skating champion
And when she finally made it
She saw some other girl who was better
And so she hired some guy to
Club her in the kneecap

Mm mm mm, mm mm mm mm
Ah, mm mm mm mm, mm mm mm mm

They got paid for their sound bites
And sold their TV movie rights

And then, there was this guy who
Made his wife so mad one night that she cut off his wiener
And when he finally came to
He found that Mr. Happy was missing
He couldn't quite explain it
It'd always just been there

Mm mm mm mm, mm mm mm mm
Mm mm mm mm, mm mm mm mm

Ah ah (There) ah ah (Were)
Ah ah (There) ah ah (Is)
Ah ah (There) ah ah (Were)
Ah ah (There) ah ah (Is)

Ah ah (There) ah ah (Were)
Ah ah (There) ah ah (Is)
Ah ah (There) ah ah (Were)
Ah ah (There) ah ah (Is)

(There were, there is)
(There were, there is)

  • This song is a parody of "Mmm Mmm Mmm Mmm" by The Crash Test Dummies, off of their 1993 album God Shuffled His Feet.
  • Just like the original song, this tells the stories of 3 people, but unlike the original, which tells the stories of 3 children and their misfortunes, Yankovic's parody depicts 3 people who were involved in big news stories of the early 1990s. The 3 people depicted in this song are Michael Fay, who was caned in Singapore for vandalizing cars, Tonya Harding, who hired a man to injure fellow Olympic figure-skater Nancy Kerrigan, thus eliminating some of her competition, and John Wayne Bobbit, whose wife cut off his penis.
