The Lyrics

The original is one of my favourite songs... this one is better.
Doesn't he get worse as the days go by
Nobody ever stops to ask him why
One time he's leaning up against a wall
You want to question what he does when he leaves the mall
The PA says:

shoppers... please watch out for the mime
shoppers... please watch out for the mime

He makes his body look like it's fake
This pale skin this hair like paste
The fake door opens with a thrust without haste
There isn't anything he's never faked...
the PA says:

shoppers... please watch out for the mime
shoppers... please watch out for the mime
shoppers... please watch out for the mime
shoppers... please watch out for the mime

When you're trying to avoid the mime
Sometimes you make him feel like he's commiting a crime
Everything he does takes alot trying
So give him a job and he'll stop miming...
The PA says

everyone... I got rid of the mime
everyone... I got rid of the mime
everyone... I got rid of the mime
everyone... I got rid of the mime
everyone... I got rid of the mime
everyone... I got rid of the mime
