Bb Cm AmLife's extension lottery
Gm FKind to some, but not to thee
Bb C AmBorn with a rare and sad disease
Gm C FShe grew a ham where her head should be
[Pre-Chorus]
Bb AmFlowing hair, she was a cutie pie
Gm FMeaty face and a lovely eye
Bb AmHer dream was to be a famous star
Gm FBut at the rate she was going, she wasn't going far
[Chorus]
Bb AmHamantha, Hamantha
Gm FYou were impossible to ignore
Bb AmHamantha, Hamantha
Gm FSo greedy we wanted more
[Verse 2] Bb Am Gm F (2x)
Bb Dm Am CHer father was a simple man
GmHe wanted to help
F"In any way that I can!"
Bbm Cm FmHome from school, he watched his daughter cry
GIn the yard, he cursed God
FAnd fired at the sky
[Pre-Chorus]
Bb AmFlowing hair, she was a cutie pie
Gm FMeaty face and a lovely eye
Bb AmDreams in the sky, her father felt her pain
Gm fAnd as he shot at the clouds, it began to rain

Cm Gm FYou were impossible to ignore
Bb AmHamantha, Hamantha
Gm FSo greedy we wanted more
[Bridge]
Bb AmGot a call from the doctor
Gm FHe had some amazing news for her
Bb AmHe just developed a cure
Gm7 Gm FIf she hurried over now, he'd try it out on her
Bb AmBurst out the door, she was beaming
Gm FAmong the raindrops her happy tears were streaming
Bb AmFinally free from her pain
Gm FBut something else fell with the rain
Bb AmA stray bullet shot by her father
Gm FPainlessly nested inside her
Bb AmShe fell to the the sidewalk, now empty
Gm FOf the life which once christened her body
[Interlude] Bb Am Gm F
F"Nurse
FShe... she's gone."
F"Oh - oh dear."
F"I left a lunch on the table in the operating room for the bereaved
FA cooked ham, as is customary for these... dark situations."
F"Doctor - what - which one is the - which one is the ham?"
F"I - I must go, I'm on break."
F Bb"Oh dear."

AmFlowing hair, she was a cutie pie
Gm FMeaty face and a lovely eye
BbAt her time of death
AmThe doc said "time to eat!"
Gm FSo he took a bite out of her face meat
[Chorus]
Bb AmHamantha, Hamantha
Cm Gm FYou were impossible to ignore
Bb AmHamantha, Hamantha
Gm FSo greedy we wanted more
[Post-Chorus]
Bb F AmSoaring infinitely through space
Gm FHamantha's soul was graced
Bb AmWith a glance of our humble planet
Gm FAt which she was amazed
Bb AmThe news of her untimely death
Gm FHad spread out near and far
Bb AmAnd through her soul, the truth was whole
Gm FThe dream had crossed the bar
Gm FHamantha had become a star
Gm FHamantha was finally a star
Gm FHamantha had become a star
Bb C FHamantha was finally a star
