About Mike Phirman

Like many of you, my name is Mike. Each organ in my body evolved over millions of years to perform a very specific function, much like their cousin organisms in the ocean. Working together, we can't smell, but we can write a song.

Dance Song Lyrics

Let the rhythm take you
Let the rhythm move you
Let the rhythm borrow your car
Let the rhythm use your shower on Thursday afternoon so it doesn’t have to go all the way back across town before going to see “Hamilton”
Let the rhythm cut its own hair
Let the rhythm watch back-to-back episodes of NOVA
Let the rhythm explain something to you: the rhythm is not your maid, OK?

Let your spirit go
Let your spirit be free
Let your spirit park in a handicap spot
Let your spirit lose control of a truck and crash into a loading dock
Let your spirit eat one bite of everything in the pantry
Let your spirit off with a warning, but let it know that next time your spirit knocks over a public planter, it’s getting a citation

Let the music play
Let the music play with matches
Let the music play frisbee on the beach
Let the music play other music when it’s sick of itself
Let the music play Mass Effect at Justin’s this afternoon
Let the music play you for a fool
Let the music play Willy Loman in “Death of a Music”
Let the music play musical chairs, which it and its friends just calls “chairs”

[outro, fireworks, glass shatter, etc.]

Two Handed Snake Test

A few days ago, I was messing around with my hands in the mirror (as grown adults do), and this little dude just crawled out. How could I not let him sing this?!
