Jack Stauber – The Ballad Of Hamantha lyrics
[Verse 1]
Life's extension lottery
Kind to some, but not to thee
Born with a rare and sad disease
She grew a ham where her head should be

[Pre-Chorus]
Flowing hair, she was a cutie pie
Meaty face and a lovely eye
Her dream was to be a famous star
But at the rate she was goin’, she wasn't going far

[Chorus]
Hamantha, Hamantha
You were impossible to ignore
Hamantha, Hamantha
So greedy we wanted more

[Verse 2]
Her father was a simple man
He wanted to help
"In any way that I can!"
Home from school, he watched his daughter cry
In the yard, he cursed God
And fired at the sky

[Pre-Chorus]
Flowing hair, she was a cutie pie
Meaty face and a lovely eye
Dreams in the sky, her father felt her pain
And as he shot at the clouds, it began to rain

[Chorus]
Hamantha, Hamantha
You were impossible to ignore
Hamantha, Hamantha
So greedy we wanted more

[Bridge]
Got a call from the doctor
He had some amazing news for her
He just developed a cure
If she hurried over now, he'd try it out on her

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

A stray bullet shot by her father
Painlessly nested inside her
She fell to the the sidewalk, now empty
Of the life which once christened her body

[Interlude]
"Nurse
She’s... she's gone."
"Oh - oh dear."
"I left a lunch on the table in the operating room for the bereaved
A cooked ham, as is customary for these... dark situations."
"Doctor - what - which one is the - which one is the ham?"
"I - I must go, I'm on break."
"Oh dear."

[Pre-Chorus]
Flowing hair, she was a cutie pie
Meaty face and a lovely eye
At her time of death
The doc said "time to eat!"
So he took a bite out of her face meat

[Chorus]
Hamantha, Hamantha
You were impossible to ignore
Hamantha, Hamantha
So greedy we wanted more

[Post-Chorus]
Soaring infinitely through space
Hamantha's soul was graced
With a glance of our humble planet
At which she was amazed

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

Hamantha had become a star
Hamantha was finally a star
Hamantha was finally a star
