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 hangin' around
You got your brain from a hole in the ground
You come up, look around, for a will of your own
But you're mine yeahhhhh

Like a puppet on a string [x4]

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
