Interlude -x2-: Bb Am Gm F

Verse 1: 
Bb       Cm       Am
Life's extension lottery
Gm                    F
Kind to some, but not to thee
Bb          C            Am
Born with a rare and sad disease
         Gm                   C      F
She grew a ham where her head should be
 
Pre-Chorus:
Bb                      Am
Flowing hair, she was a cutie pie
   Gm               F
Meaty face and a lovely eye
    Bb                Am
Her dream was to be a famous star
           Gm                             F
But at the rate she was going, she wasn't going far
 
Chorus:
Bb          Am
Hamantha, Hamantha
          Gm                  F
You were impossible to ignore
 Bb         Am
Hamantha, Hamantha
   Gm                    F
So greedy we wanted more
 
Interlude -x2-: Bb Am Gm F

Verse 2: 
Bb                Am
Her father was a simple man
Gm
He wanted to help
            F
"In any way that I can!"
Bb                               Am
Home from school, he watched his daughter cry
       Gm
In the yard, he cursed God
          F
And fired at the sky
 
Pre-Chorus:
Bb                      Am
Flowing hair, she was a cutie pie
  Gm                F
Meaty face and a lovely eye
Bb                            Am
Dreams in the sky, her father felt her pain
          Gm                           F
And as he shot at the clouds, it began to rain
 
Chorus:
  Bb        Am
Hamantha, Hamantha
          Gm           F
You were impossible to ignore
 Bb         Am
Hamantha, Hamantha
   Gm                   F
So greedy we wanted more
 
Bridge:
Bb                  Am
Got a call from the doctor
       Gm                F
He had some amazing news for her
   Bb                  Am
He just developed a cure
 Gm                                      F
If she hurried over now, he'd try it out on her
 

Bb                             Am
Burst out the door, she was beaming
 Gm                                      F
Among the raindrops her happy tears were streaming
Bb                      Am
Finally free from her pain
    Gm                           F
But something else fell with the rain
 

  Bb                         Am
a stray bullet shot by her father
Gm                 F
Painlessly nested inside her
    Bb                              Am
She fell to the the sidewalk, now empty
       Gm                    F
Of the life which once christened her body

Flowing hair, she was a cutie pie
  Gm              F
Meaty face and a lovely eye

At her time of death
             Am
The doc said "time to eat!"

So he took a bite out of her face meat

Soaring infinitely through space
 Gm                 F
Hamantha's soul was graced
Bb                   Am
With a glance of our humble planet
 Gm                     F
At which she was amazed
 

    Bb          Am
The news of her untimely death
    Gm                    F
Had spread out near and far
    Bb                    Am
And through her soul, the truth was whole
    Gm                      F
The dream had crossed the bar
 

 Gm                       F
Hamantha had become a star
 Gm                    F
Hamantha was finally a star
 Gm                       F
Hamantha had become a star
 Bb              C     F
Hamantha was finally a star
