Here are the chords for this song as closely as I could figure them out.
He played it somewhat differently on Saturday Night Live, so I'm
including what I hear on the CD, but also noting where he seemed to do
things differently. Also take note of a weird chord that I don't know
the name of that I've marked with asterisks and included a crude tab of
how it is played.
Mmmm Mmmm Mmmm Mmmmm (CAPO ON 3RD FRET)
[Em] [Bm] [Em] [Bm] [F] [G] [F] [G]  
[Em] [Bm] [Em] [Bm] [F] [G] [F] [G]  
[Am]Once [G] there was this [C]kid who
F C G# C (He played a G, not G#)
Got into an accident and couldn't come to school
But [F]when he finally [G]came [C]back
[G]His [C]hair [F]had turned from [C]black into [G]bright white
He [G#]said that it was [C]from when
G# C/F** F (Note the weird chord: it's like this
 The cars had smashed soooo hard oE|---|---|---|
 CHORUS: E|---|---|---|

[Em]Mmmm Mmmm [Bm]Mmmm Mmmm, [Em]Mmmm Mmmm [Bm]Mmmm Mmmm[F] [G] [F] [G]
[Em]Mmmm Mmmm [Bm]Mmmm Mmmm, [Em]Mmmm Mmmm [Bm]Mmmm Mmmm[F] [G] [F] [G]
[Am]Then [G] there was this [C]girl who
F C G# C (He played G; not G#
Wouldn't go to change with the girls in the change room
But [F]when [C] they finally [G]made [C]her
[G]They [C]saw [F] birthmarks all [C]over her [G]body
She [G#]couldn't quite ex[C]plain it
G# C/F** F
They'd always just been there
[Dm]Both girl and [C]boy w[G]ere glad
[Dm]One kid had it [C]worse t[G]han that[F] [G]
'Cause [Am]then [G] there was a [C]boy whose
F C G# C (Again, he plays G
Parents made him come right home directly after school
And [F]when [C]they went to [G]their [C]church
[G]They [C]shook [F] and lurched all [C]over the [G]church floor
He [G#]couldn't quite ex[C]plain it
G# C/F** F
They'd always just gone there
Outro is the same progression as the bridge
