Ringo Starr – Puppet lyrics

By Richard Starkey, Mark Hudson, Dean Grakal and Steve Dudas


WE'VE BEEN FRIENDS FOR SUCH A LONG TIME,
MY HEAD HAS A MIND OF it's OWN.
I DON'T WANNA WAIT IN NO LINE
ALL I WANNA DO IS GO HOME.
SOMETHING'S GOIN' ON INSIDE ME,
I WON'T LET IT TEAR ME APART.

YOU GOT TO BREAKDOWN TO BREAKTHROUGH,
GROWING UP TOOK SOMEONE LIKE YOU.
FORGET ABOUT THE THINGS IN YOUR HEAD,
IT'S TIME TO PUT THE PUPPET TO BED.

DON'T TELL ME ROME WAS BUILT IN A DAY, (no way)
YOU GOT TO LEAVE BEFORE YOU ARRIVE.
IF YOU'RE WILLING TO GIVE IT AWAY, (okay)
IT'S THE ONLY WAY TO SURVIVE.
NEVER UP IS NEVER IN,
YOU GOT TO LOSE BEFORE YOU CAN WIN.

YOU GOT TO BREAKDOWN TO BREAKTHROUGH,
GROWING UP TOOK SOMEONE LIKE YOU.
FORGET ABOUT THE THINGS IN YOUR HEAD,
IT'S TIME TO PUT THE PUPPET TO BED, YEAH-AH!

DO YOURSELF A FAVOUR,
YOU GOT TO LOVE YOUR NEIGHBOUR.
EVEN WHEN THE CHIPS ARE DOWN.

CUT THE STRINGS AND LET ME GO,
NOW THIS IS A ONE MAN SHOW.

YOU GOT TO BREAKDOWN TO BREAKTHROUGH,
GROWING UP TOOK SOMEONE LIKE YOU.
FORGET ABOUT THE THINGS IN YOUR HEAD,
IT'S TIME TO PUT THE PUPPET TO BED.

YOU GOT TO BREAKDOWN TO BREAKTHROUGH,
GROWING UP TOOK SOMEONE LIKE YOU.
FORGET ABOUT THE THINGS IN YOUR HEAD,
IT'S TIME TO PUT THE PUPPET TO BED.

ALRIGHT! ALRIGHT! ALRIGHT!
