Parody Song Title:

"Mimes"

Parody Written by:

The Lyrics

Well the mimes, they're
Chalk faced creepy people
Dressed all alike

They get tugged by air
Pretend like they're trapped
And it's pointless to ask them why

So if you're shook by a mime panhandling, man
Here's what you do

Throw some change in its hat
And then tell it to scat
Slow!
Make -- no sudden moves

Oh, oh oh!

Mimes, mimes
Terrified of mimes
Hate it when they follow me
Wish they'd all die
They're just human rats
God I hate those mimes!

Oh the mimes bug ev'rybody
Love harassing!
Filthy parasites!

So I planned my defense
In case one should pounce
Hey! What if one should bite?

They get in your face
Won't let you 'round
And you don't know just where they've been

If one comes near
Just mace it in the face
Man, it might have distemper!

Mimes, mimes
Terrified of mimes
Hate it when they follow me
Wish they'd all die
They're just human rats
God I hate those mimes!

Now, hey you critter
Can't you speak?
Now, tell me would it hurt to try and make you scream?
You can't tell a judge if you can't speak
You sure you want to be here?

The mime fled
You got to understand
It's not hard to make them cry
Ha!

(Instrumental break)

The mime got
Twenty seven others
Came back to make me pay

And when I saw them sporting bats
I avoided the brawl
I didn't have a reason to stay

So I ran like the wind
Not a pray-er
But I prayed for
The death of the mimes

I begged,
Please dear Lord, they're catching up to me!
Could you smite those freakin' mimes?!

Whew!

Mimes, mimes
Terrified of mimes
Hate it when they follow me
Wish they'd all die
They're just human rats
God I hate those mimes!

Mimes! Mimes!
Terrified of mimes!
(Instrumental)
Mimes! Mimes!
(Instrumental / fade)

Mimes! Don't you just hate them? I did some Jean Dixon type of predictions in Jan, 2003 and predicted the follwoing:

"Someone will clone a mime and it will all be over except for the screaming."

Great parody and great imagination.

Thanks Billy and Guy! Guy: What a nightmarish vision of the future! Wait a minute... they all dress alike, they all do the same schtick... nooo, couldn't be. Could it? (shudder)

Not bad for dead hamsters (Hilarious visuals there BTW)
Melhi - September 24, 2003 - Report this comment
Thanks Claude. (My neighbors must agree. Seems they laughed themselves sick at the sight. At least, that's the word they kept muttering when they phoned to insist that I close the drapes. ;) )

If cops arrest a mime, do they tell him he has the right to remain silent?
Steven Wright - September 26, 2003 - Report this comment
I put a blank tape in my VCR and turned the volume all the way up. The mime next door went crazy.
Billy Crystal - September 26, 2003 - Report this comment
A mime is a terrible thing to waste.

I love it.
Melhi - September 26, 2003 - Report this comment
Thanks Michael & friends. Billy C., I agree, if you're going to hunt them, you should eat them and make coats of their skins.

I hope you stabbed that mime with a knife.
Melhi - December 03, 2003 - Report this comment
Spaff, yes, I stabbed it with my steely knife, then I had myself a feast... oh, wait, wrong song, never mind. :)
Leah Lockhart - December 03, 2003 - Report this comment
This is hilarious. Would have missed it without the comments! I always thought mimes were scary. And clowns. Have you seen the "This is Spinal Tap" out-take with the mime? It might leave you speechless.
Melhi - December 03, 2003 - Report this comment
Thanks Leah! I love Spinal Tap and I'm a "bonus features" nerd, so I know I've seen it, probably several times, but I can't remember it to save my life! (woke with a bad cold, today and I think it's cutting off the oxygen supply to my brain cells.)

Good job Melhi. 5 stars. I have just added a new Shania Twain parody to the Shania Twain section that I think you would enjoy. There is even a link to a sample of the original song. Any comments or votes would be graciously appreciated. This is a parody of "Whose Bed Has Your Boots Been Under?" and although it says written by "Twain/Lange", it was ofcourse written by me.
Melhi - February 29, 2004 - Report this comment
Thanks Ethan, Mystery Goat, Jack and Chris. Chris, I'll definitely check it out! Goatman - I thought pretty much the same thing when I reviewed yours, except substitute "touching" for "funny."

Liked it...next time you see a mime and you want to give him some spare change, throw paradigms in his hat - then tell him the air from his air guitar is going to his head.
