Crash Test Dummies - I'm The Man (That You Are Not) Lyrics

Here's a nasty little queen
There's a boy who loves his mother
Here's another operator
Thinkin' that he's got it covered

You're in a jam
You're tied up in knots
And I'm the man
That you are not
Yeah, I'm the man
That you are not

Here's some white boy doin' time
There's one that got out
Here's another brother who seems to think
He knows what it's about

You're in a jam
You're tied up in knots
And I'm the man
That you are not
Yeah, I'm the man
That you are not

I'm the one just sittin' back
Waitin' here alone
I stay inside and shut the blinds
Do everything by phone

You're in a jam
You're tied up in knots
And I'm the man
That you are not
Yeah, I'm the man
That you are not

Crash Test Dummies I'm The Man (That You Are Not) Comments
  1. J CS

    Absolute trash.

  2. YummeYTea

    Bruh I was looking for that meme song hmmm mmmm mmmmm like that

  3. maniacal1

    For some random ass reason, I decided to look this album up again and listen to it ( don't own a cassette player anymore ), and I still remember EVERY SINGLE LYRIC of all the songs. Even after all this time.
    THAT is a testament to how awesome this band was.


    Reminds me of my teens in those years....mmmmmmMmMmmMmemories!!

  5. José Silva

    Dumb & Dumber

  6. Cathy Juelsgaard

    It grows on ya !

  7. Courtney Gillespie

    Laziest song ever 😂

  8. Blues Boy

    It must have taken them forever to think of a title for this song.

  9. shannon boyle

    Weird Al's version was way better

  10. Matt Supertramp

    Imagine Geralt of Rivia singing the chorus XD

  11. albion7000

    Once, there was was a man who, wouldn't ever take off his hat at all and when
    they finally made him, they found, piss flaps all over his forehead.
    He couldn't quite explain he just said they'd always been there. mmm mmm mmm mmm

  12. Tom Knott

    Blast from the past!! 🙂
    The singer has a strong Robert Downey Jr. vibe to him. I also like, how he's quite tongue-in-cheek - I don't remember that about the video from the 1st time around 😆

  13. Albert Pringle

    well this song is creepy!

  14. Jake Kelly

    Essa música❤

  15. O and Me

    Once there was this kid who
    Got into an accident and couldn't come to school
    But when he finally came back
    His hair had turned from black into bright white
    He said that it was from when
    The cars had smashed him so hard

    Mmm Mmm Mmm Mmm

    Once there was this girl who
    Wouldn't go and change with the girls in the change room
    But when they finally made her
    They saw birthmarks all over her body
    She couldn't quite explain it
    They'd always just been there

    Mmm Mmm Mmm Mmm
    Mmm Mmm Mmm Mmm

    But both the girl and boy were glad
    'Cause one kid had it worse than that

    'Cause then there was this boy whose
    Parents made him come directly home right after school
    And when they went to their church
    They shook and lurched all over the church floor
    He couldn't quite explain it
    They'd always just gone there

    Mmm Mmm Mmm Mmm
    Mmm Mmm Mmm Mmm

    Oh oh
    Oh oh

  29. Roads ToMadness

    First time I heard this on MTV in 91 I was so stoned I didn't think it was a real song for weeks.

    Will Ritter

    yeah, you were definitely pretty stoned if you heard this in '91, because it wasn't released until late '93... I'd be honored if some 90s fans would take a listen to my acoustic piano & vocal performances of Mmm Mmm Mmm by the CRASH TEST DUMMIES and Long December by the COUNTING CROWS on my YT channel in tribute to a couple of great 90s standards. Live acoustic with no digital editing. Thanks and peace out.

    Thomas Kemer

    Haunting Melody🎶

  30. W4nKeR

    When you're searching for a song on google and just type mmmm mmmm mmm mmmmmmmm

  31. Jim Pom

    Hahaha This song is like nails on a chalkboard.

  32. Joe Randolph

    My favorite one hit wonder of the 90’s.

  33. stuart

    great video

  34. Pinoy keyboard warrior

    I was 13 when this aired in the philippines back in the summer of 1993... the "MMM" vocals really got me

  35. Detourist

    2:50 me when my ex wife texts me asking if she can come over tonight

  36. Bulma


  37. Krypton

    My favorite part from "Dumb & Dumber" when they're on the road, Harry: "I made a mistake, OK?!!!"

    jim jimjim

    I need that bike they ride.

  38. Mr LMMO

    og people's eyebrow

  39. Ryan Coulter

    Usually when I listen to songs covered by Weird Al all I can hear is the parody lyrics. But this one I keep expecting to hear the hand fart/squeak toy sounds.

    For those of you who’ve only heard THIS song by them (or this and Peter Pumpkinhead) go check out their other videos: ghosts that haunt me now, superman’s song, god shuffled his feet, afternoons and coffee spoons, and when I’m swimming in your ocean.

  40. 89escalade

    My drum teacher helped produce this album. I guess they were awesome to work with.

  41. James sullivan

    Answer me one question: why do all girls HATE this song? They absolutely did in the eighties and still do now as grown women with children. Honest question: they friggin’ hate this song with a passion. Help please...


    Probably the underlying message. It's about extreme child abuse and how it's covered up, they may not like that idea. Other than that, just not that person's style.

  42. Rick Smith

    Hey as a dude that grew up in the 70's, I was listening to this 90's song and I wondered has enough time went by that 90's people can start yelling at kids today and tell them they don't know what good music is. I am kinda tired watching my generation do all the yelling, its your turn now

    mk ultra butterfly

    We already started - mumble rap is trash, kids these days have no idea what good music is, sir.

    Dirk Lorenzen

    May i answer with a song, sir, witch might describe your, and maybe my problem (born in 1966) ;-)

  43. diamond dagger

  48. Kurt Foster

    what a great snare tone ....

  49. TesoroDigger.

    Mmmmmm mmmmmm mmmmm mmmm I’m still listening this unforgettable crazy song in 2020, love it!

  50. Julia Reyes

    Bakit ka bakla? Bakit bakla ang teacher ko?

  51. Gio Gionist

    His singing style reminds me a bit of Doug Ingle

  52. Alan Minne

    Campbell's Soup really missed the boat not getting these guys to update their soup slogan, "It's mmm mmm mmm good." 😆

    Mad Minute


  53. hoon4tw

    So I heard this song and liked it when I was a young. Listening to it now this is Canadian as fuck and sure enough when I Wikipedia'd the Crash Test Dummies they are from Winnipeg. Still a good listen. Polite, cordial, agreeable, pretty in some ways, yeah.. Canadian as FUCK!

  54. david Pierce

    I was surprised to read this song has been rated among the worst songs of that era. I always thought it GREAT, one of those unusual gems that came out of nowhere, right in there with Beck's Loser

    Mr LMMO

    Wow i love both of them songs!!!

  55. William Woodside

    Yup. Me

  56. Carol J Green

    I just love this song...I never tire of it...

  58. Biggie

    Glorius day of Mtv..Also Beavis and Butthead

  59. This Guy

    Look at his facial expressions as he is singing . All the children’s stories are lies . Child abuse all the way

    Mr LMMO

    That's what mmhmm means. A sarcastic agreement to what's being said...

    This Guy

    I know . Others were denying that

    Kevin Blanc

    @This Guy That's not Brad Robert's' explanation.

  60. Tom

    The mmm and ahhs at the end are the best part

    Melissa Birmele

    Think you've missed the meaning of the song... that would be weird...

  61. Careless Sky

    I honestly thought this was the parody version. Then I realized; 'Wait... That isn't Weird Al"

  62. Zachary Hicks

    Venture Brothers funeral

  88. URKillingme100 *

    So I never realized how much the music sounds like XTC. Especially the bridge into the chorus.

  89. D.K4lov

    2020, in Korea.

  90. Lex Pullman

    I hated the 90s.

  91. Riccardo Gonzini

    If Geralt of Rivia had been the bard, what would he sing?


    twas brillig

    ...or Geraldo Rivera for that matter

    The MiamiFøx

    - Hmm -
    Rivia, Geralt
    1200 and something



  93. shellbelle

    Worst song in the history of songs

  94. devilhimself1974
