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)
