trouble with mencoder converting wma to mp3

i have a .wma file that plays fine in mplayer, and i'm trying to covert it to mp3 with the following:

mencoder song.wma -oac mp3lame -ovc copy -o song.mp3

but it doesn't even start, giving me this:

success: format: 0 data: 0x0 - 0x2CA403
ASF file format detected.
Video stream is mandatory!

i have no idea what could be causing it; i originally tried without the -ovc flag, but that didn't work... i have also tried using -oac lavc which gave me the same message

any ideas one how to get this to convert correctly?
