  • Pull the string and I'll wink at you, I'm your puppet
    I'll do funny things if you want me to, I'm your puppet

    I'm yours to have and to hold
    Darling you've got full control of your puppet

    Pull another string and I'll kiss your lips, I'm your puppet
    Snap your finger and I'll turn you some flips, I'm your puppet

    Listen, your every wish is my command
    All you gotta do is wiggle your little hand
    I'm your puppet, I'm your puppet

    I'm just a toy, just a funny boy
    That makes you laugh when you're blue
    I'll be wonderful, do just what I'm told
    I'll do anything for you
    I'm your puppet, I'm your puppet

    Pull them little strings and I'll sing you a song, I'm your puppet
    Make me do right or make me do wrong, I'm your puppet

    Treat me good and I'll do anything
    I'm just a puppet and you hold my string, I'm your puppet

    Darling, darling, pull the strings, let me sing you a song any day
    I'm your puppet baby, you can sing for me all night long

  • Stephen from Dallas, TexasAnother great hit from Fall of 1966. This song prominently featured a xylophone - also used in "Oh How Happy" by Shades of Blue - both songs peaked in Fall of '66
