CHORDS AND LYRICS
(INTRO)
A Bm
A billion people died on the news tonight
A Bm
But not so many cried at the devil sight
A
Well mama said
A
It's just make believe
C#m
You can't believe everything you see
Bm D
So baby close your eyes to the lullabies
Dm
On the news tonight
(once through verse before lyrics start)
A Bm
Who's the one to decide that it would be alright
A Bm
To put the music behind the news tonight
A
Well mama said

You can't believe everything you hear
C#m Bm
The diegetic world is so unclear
D
So baby close your ears
C#m Bm
On the news tonight
Fm
On the news tonight
Bm Fm
The unobtrusive tones on the news tonight

And mama said
A E
Mmmmmmmmmmmmmm

A Bm
Why don't the newscasters cry when they read about people who die
A Bm
At least they could be decent enough to put just a tear in their eyes

Mama said
A
It's just make believe
C#m
You cant believe everything you see
Bm D
So baby close your eyes to the lullabies
Dm A
On the news tonight
(Bm to A chord for outro)
