  • I've got no strings
    To hold me down
    To make me fret
    Or make me frown
    I had strings
    But now I'm free
    There are no strings on me

    Hi-ho the me-ri-o
    That's the only way to go
    I want the world to know
    Nothing ever worries me

    I've got no strings
    So I have fun
    I'm not tied up to anyone
    They've got strings
    But you can see
    There are no strings on me

    You have no strings
    Your arms is free
    To love me by the Zuider Zee
    Ya, ya, ya
    If you would woo
    I'd bust my strings for you

    You've got no strings
    Comme ci comme ca
    Your savoire-faire is ooh la la
    I've got strings
    But entre nous
    I'd cut my strings for you

    Down where the Volga flows
    There's a Russian rendezvous
    Where me and Ivan go
    But I'd rather go with you, hey

    There are no strings on me Writer/s: LEIGH HARLINE, NED WASHINGTON
