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
