(Words: Mark/Music: Jordan, Mark, Cobra Joe) I was talking with someone about the scripture, "Whatever you do unto the least of these, you do unto me." I was asked "Who are the least of these?" "MIMES!!!" Before any angry mimes start sending off imaginary hate mail (at least they can't yell at us)...it's just a joke. We understand your struggle.
They'd throw imaginary ropes around imaginary cattle No one was amused They'd get themselves all trapped inside invisible boxes At best they seemed confused Yeah but you've got to respect them Sure they were weird These were the true pioneers
(Chorus) No one had it harder These boys passed the test No one got beat up more often Than the mimes of the old west
Well people these days they feel so sorry for themselves They think they've got it hard Try walking through Dodge City in the 1800's Dressed in a unitard And though the odds were against them They would prevail They knew they just couldn't fail
(Chorus) No one had it harder Rightfully so I guess No one got beat up more often Than the mimes of the old west They stood there blind to the hatred On with the show They paved the way for the great Marcel Marceau
(Chorus) No one had it harder Rightfully so I guess No one got beat up more often Than the mimes of the old west
