The Lyrics

A guy I worked with in the 70's once told me he had a date with a mime, the girl from "Shields & Yarnell", a mime duo who were pretty well-regarded in that era and appeared on quite a few variety shows. But she did talk on their date...
Did you ever have a date with a mime?
was not much to say so during dinner I smiled
and after some strangeness things seemed to be fine
I was happy on this date with a mime

With my dinner drank a litre of wine
As we left the restaurant I groped her behind
Was feeling no pain, yes, I really was primed
She did not complain; I thought things were fine

This one had clear, bright blue eyes and was surely no dummy
But nothing to say, could as well been a mummy
I continued to drink; the room started to swirl
With my hands in her panties; I felt pretty virile

I'm not sure now if she ever declined
But I get the feeling I'm now in a bind
I called her last night and was treated like slime
She seemed quite pissed off that I was surprised

But I really dug that girl, yes, that I remember
And I have to admit that I put in my member
Next thing that I know I am charged with a crime
Cop said, "You're going to jail, slick, to do some hard time"

Locked in jail now; it's sure damaged my pride
A small prison cell, that is where I reside
My "bunky" makes me do some things I don't like
That's the last time that I'm dating a mime...

Another one I've been wanting to do, but bubkes. Nice job, especially the title.

Thanks, alvin - this idea kind of popped into my head last week & I'm not real sure what triggered that, but I'm glad it did. Jeez, JB, you gotta leave SOME songs for us slower folks to do...Thanks!!

Silence is golden, but the cops still see. Billy Crystal once said, "A mime is a terrible thing to waste."

Great title. The words "Shields and Yarnell" haven't crossed my mind in decades. Weren't they on the Captain & Tennille show? Yikes.

Thanks, Spaff! Hmmm..."Shields & Yarnell" might well have appeared on the Captain & Tennille show...they pretty much made the rounds of most of the hour-long variety shows of that era.
