Puppet On A String lyrics

Like a puppet on a string
You hold on tight, you hold on tight
Like a puppet on a string
Like a puppet on a string
You hold on tight, you hold on tight
You hold on tight

Got your education from just hanging around
You got your brain from a hole in the ground
You come on up, look around for a will of your own

Like a puppet on a string
Like a puppet on a string
Like a puppet on a string
Like a puppet on a string

With porcelain eyes and the mind of a monkey
Rode into town on the back of what looked like a dead donkey
So I do to you what a puppet master would do
Can you tell? Yeah

Like a puppet on a string
Like a puppet on a string
Like a puppet on a string
Like a puppet on a string

You got your education from just hanging around
You got your brain from a hole in the ground
You come on up, look around for a will of your own
But your mind, yeah

Like a puppet on a string
You hold on tight, you hold on tight
Like a puppet on a string
Like a puppet on a string
You hold on tight, you hold on tight
You hold on tight

Like a puppet on a string
You hold on tight, you hold on tight
Like a puppet on a string
Like a puppet on a string
You hold on tight, you hold on tight
You hold on tight
