ABBA – I’m A Marionette lyrics

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
