The Lyrics

You are a mime
At first it seemed kinda funny
Time after time
It seems now wrong
'Cause I just want to scream
You wear leotards and busk in the street
And you act so strange
You're getting your face makeup all on the sheets

Oh girl, you are a mime
Wearing a suit like Marcel Marceau's
You are a mime (a mime!)
Baby, that's the reason
I just got to go
I know (I know)
That you're walking against the wind, nice try
I don't care! (don't care!)
You are so crazy, I can't lie!
Who are you tryin' to kid?
You are a mime

You are a mime
You went and scared off all my best friends
I was so blind
I let you prance through town
Without a care
I never thought we'd get kicked off a bus
But you were there
Bugging passengers right next to us
Oh no! (oh no!)
Now you're acting like you're stuck in a box
I don't care! (don't care!)
I think you're crazy, I can't lie
And I ain't playing with you kid
You are a mime
You are a mime

5s, it reminds me of a joke a comedian once said: beatings aren't funny, stabbings aren't funny and mimes aren't funny. But beating and stabbing a mime, why is that so funny? ^___^

Sounds like your ex doesn't have much to say for herself, here. I LOL at the bugging passengers on the bus bit. 555

(ABC) The odd thing about this parody is that it actually makes sense to imagine Prince wearing mime-makeup (but not keeping his yap shut)! ;-)

Uh, let me explain: when your mime friend did this on the bus, the driver and passengers expected her to tell a sob story and beg for money afterward!

Ahh, Mimes...it's like they just leave an open invitation for people to make fun of them. =) I liked this, Agri...

ABC- Sure, mimes can be annoying, but this parody is not. Good work!
