The Lyrics

Livin' must be tough as a mime.
You can't talk, you gotta show.
Livin' must be tough as a mime.
You can't talk, you gotta show.

Your zest for life they often mistake,
Just think, no speech uttered just meditate.
Someday a patient you may be,
Some will indeed react cruelishly.
Even though your heart may be in it,
Ass gets kicked in a New York minute.

Livin' must be tough as a mime.
You can't talk, you gotta show.
Livin' must be tough as a mime.
You can't talk, you gotta show

Born dumb though mimes never worry,
A faker of life never in a hurry.
We all know you're speechless for life,
And this gets you guys overhyped.
Live it up you never know,
Lack of speech may impede, go on with the show.

Livin' must be tough as a mime.
You can't talk, you gotta show.
Baby please baby
Baby please baby

Can't see that mountain that you climb.
Can't tell if it's water you drink or wine.
That rope you're pulling really looks long.
Looks like you're singing can't make out the song.
Seems like you're lost did you follow the route?
Just like soundless elves as you mime it out.

Livin' must be tough as a mime.
You can't talk, you gotta show.
Baby please baby
Baby please baby

"A mime is a terrible thing to waste." -- Billy Crystal. "I played a blank tape at full blast, and the mime next door went crazy." -- George Carlin. "If you arrest a mime, do you tell him he has the right to remain silent?" -- also Carlin. "Good parody." -- Michael Pacholek

Thanks Michael and Billy - Someone will clone a mime and it will all be over except the screaming. -- Guy DiRito, One of his 20 predicitions for 2003 as was seen on another website in January 2003. Tried to fit this somehow into this song but the mimes couldn't sound it out.
