I'm A Marionette lyrics

"you're so free", that's what everybody's telling me
Yet i feel i'm like an outward-bound, pushed around, refugee
Something's wrong, got a feeling that i don't belong
As if i had come from outer space, out of place, like king kong

I'm a marionette, just a marionette, pull the string
I'm a marionette, everybody's pet, just as long as i sing
I'm a marionette, see my pirouette, round and round
I'm a marionette, i'm a marionette, just a silly old clown

Like a doll, like a puppet with no will at all
And somebody told me how to talk, how to walk, how to fall

Can't complain, i've got no-one but myself to blame
Something's happening i can't control, lost my hold, is it safe?

I'm a marionette, just a marionette, pull the string
I'm a marionette, everybody's pet, just as long as i sing
I'm a marionette, see my pirouette, round and round
I'm a marionette, i'm a marionette, just a silly old clown

"look this way, just a little smile", is what they say
"you look better on the photograph if you laugh, that's okay"

I'm a marionette, just a marionette, pull the string
I'm a marionette, everybody's pet, just as long as i sing
I'm a marionette, see my pirouette, round and round
I'm a marionette, i'm a marionette, just a silly old clown

"you're so free", that's what everybody's telling me
Yet i feel i'm like an outward-bound, pushed around, refugee
