"You're so free, " that's what everybody's tell - ing me
                       C             D             Em
Yet I feel I'm like an outward-bound, pushed around, refugee
Something's wrong, got a feeling that I don't belong
                      C           D            Em
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 taught 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?


"Look this way, just a little smile, " is what they say
"You look better on the photograph; if you laugh, that's okay"


"You're so free," that's what everybody's telling me
Yet I feel I'm like an outward-bound, pushed around, refugee
