The Lyrics

Come gather 'round people
Wherever you roam
And admit that the mimes
Really annoy you so
They act like they're trapped in
Boxes 'til we moan and groan
If your time to you
Is worth savin'
Then you'd better stop wastin'
Your time watchin' mimes
For the mimes they are annoyin'.

Come writers and critics
Realize what a pain
Watching mimes can be
And don't do it again
Watching them pretend
Really makes your head spin
And there's no telling what
They are doin'.
They pretend things are there
Paint their faces, have weird hair
Yeah, the mimes they are annoyin'.

Come senators, congressmen
Please heed the call
Please outlaw this behavior
Please outlaw them all
We can't take much more
So you we will call
There are mimes outside
And they're climbin'.
They'll soon shake your windows
And rattle your walls
For the mimes they are annoyin'.

Come mothers and fathers
Throughout the land
The mimes are people
No one can understand
But they're out in the streets
And beyond our command
They keep doing
Their bad actin'.
They don't get out of the way
In front of you every day
Oh the mimes they are annoyin'.

Their faces are drawn
Their looks overcast
Very weird people who
No doubt long for the past
In the present now
Wish they'd run away fast
Those who like them are
Rapidly fadin'.
But there are still some
Who don't realize
That the mimes they are annoyin'.
