Baby, baby you know it's true I'm a puppet just for you I'll do anything you say I won't have it any other way Take my heart and take my soul Giving you complete control If you want to see me do my thing Pull my string, pull my string Puppet man, puppet man
Baby, baby I'm your sweet pet Just your personal marionette Wind me up and let me go don't you know I'm a one-man show Raise your finger and I'll perform I'll cracker Jack till the crack of dawn If you want to see me do my thing Pull my string Puppet man, puppet man
Baby, baby I'm more than you need Satisfaction guaranteed Any time you feel uptight I'm' at your service Morning, noon and night Do what you want me to I'm a puppet just for you If you want to see me do my thing Pull my string Puppet man, puppet man

Erin T. Aardvark from Washington, DcThe Muppets performed "Puppet Man" when Senor Wences was a guest star on "The Muppet Show." A Muppet version of the character Pinocchio sang this to Pops the Doorman, who was acting as Gepetto for the number. Several other Muppet "toys" were providing the background vocals of the song.
Barry from Sauquoit, NyOn February 21st 1971, Connie Stevens performed "Puppet Man" on the CBS-TV program 'The Ed Sullivan Show'... Ten months earlier on April 12th, 1970 the 5th Dimension's version of the song entered Billboard's Hot Top 100 chart; eventually it peaked at #24 and spent 8 weeks on the Top 100... And the 5th Dimension were also appearing that night on the same 'Sullivan' show.
Staley from Dallas, TxThe 5th had an earlier hit called "Carpet Man," but the 2 songs are otherwise unrelated. Just a coincidence to have 2 hit songs called "___pet Man" by the same group. This was the second Sedaka song charted by the group (after "Workin' on a Groovy Thing").
