They'd throw imaginary ropes around imaginary cattle
No one was amused
They'd get themselves all trapped inside invisible boxes
At best, they'd seem confused

Yeah, but you've got to respect them
Sure, they were weird
These were the true pioneers

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
Think they've got it hard
Try walking through Dodge City in the 1800s dressed in a unitard

And though the odds were against them, they would prevail
They knew they just couldn't fail

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
