Headline News Chords

   
Headline News – off “Greatest Hits: Vol. 2”
By “Weird Al” Yankovic

Hi everyone. This is a cool song parodied off the Crash Test Dummies’ 
“Mmm mmm mmm mmm” It’s basically all rhythm and incredibly easy to 
sing. Here we go.

Tuning: Standard (EADGBE)

BE SURE TO PUT A CAPO ON THE 3RD FRET!

All chords in relation to the capo

Intro

Em  Bm  Em  Bm  F  G  F  G

Verse 1

Am  C                 G
Once   there was this kid who
F              C             G                 C
Took a trip to Singapore and brought along his spray paint
    F   C               G    C
And when     he finally came back
G   C       F              C        G
He had      cane marks all over his bottom
   G#               C                    G#         C/F* F
He said that it was from when the warden whacked it sooo hard

[ Tab from: http://www.guitartabs.cc/tabs/y/yankovic_weird_al/headline_news_crd.html ]
Am  C                 G
Once   there was this girl who
F                  C              G              C
Swore that one day she would be a figure-skating champion
    F   C               G    C
And when    she finally made it
G   C   F          C            G
She saw some other girl who was better
       G#        C           G#              C/F  F
And so she hired some guy to club her in the knee cap

Chorus

Mmm mmm mmm mmm
Em      Bm       F    G    F    G
Mmm mmm mmm mmm

Interlude

Dm                C        G
They got paid for their sound bytes
Dm                 C    G         F
They sold their TV movie rights

Verse 3

    Am   C                    G
And then       there was this guy who
F                C                  G               C
Made his wife so mad one night that she cut off his weiner
    F  C               G    C
And when    he finally came to
G  C   F        C         G
He saw that Mr. Happy was missing
   G#               C                G#          C/F  F
He couldn’t quite explain it. It had always just been there

Chorus


Em      Bm
Mmm mmm mmm mmm
Em      Bm       F    G    F    G
Mmm mmm mmm mmm

Repeat

Repeat interlude and fade out.

That’s it! Enjoy.
