Lyrics

Puppet On A String

VERSE
Working like a sprinkler in the dessert
Up and down, round and round I go
Hoping for a big change in the weather
To help me get something new to grow
But I'm staying strong
I just keep pressing on
Wondering what next week will bring
Today I've got to sing

CHORUS
I feel like a puppet on a string [puppet on a string]
Can't do a thing [can't do a thing]
Just like a puppet on a string [puppet on a string]
Can't do a thing [can't do a thing]
Just like a puppet on a string--can't do a thing

VERSE
If you have no clue where you're going
You're surely not getting anywhere
But I feel a breeze of fresh air blowing
Lift my sail and let it take me there
To a better place
Away from this rat race
Make my life into my dream
So I don't have to sing

CHORUS
I feel like a puppet on a string [puppet on a string]
Can't do a thing [can't do a thing]
Just like a puppet on a string [puppet on a string]
Can't do a thing [can't do a thing]
Just like a puppet on a string--can't do a thing

BRIDGE
Life is up and down like a yo yo
Don't be a puppet on a string like Pinnochio
You've got more plans than Mike Brady
Don't live your life like you're trapped in the eighties
Take some action on all your plans
Cut those strings like Edward Scissorshands
You've got nothing to lose, 'cause this is real life
Then you won't ever have to feel like-----

CHORUS
A puppet on a string [puppet on a string]
Can't do a thing [can't do a thing]
Just like a puppet on a string [puppet on a string]
Can't do a thing [can't do a thing]
Just like a puppet on a string--can't do a thing

[repeat]
Like a puppet on a string [puppet on a string]
Can't do a thing [can't do a thing]
Just like a puppet on a string [puppet on a string]
Can't do a thing [can't do a thing]
Just like a puppet on a string--can't do a thing
