You Happy Puppet Lyrics - 10,000 Maniacs

How did they teach you to be 

Just a happy puppet dancing on a string? 

How did you learn everything 

That comes along with slavish funnery? 

 

Tell me something, if the world is so insane 

Is it making you sane again to 

Let another man tug at the thread 

That pulls up your nodding head? 

 

How did they teach you to be 

Just a happy puppet dancing on a string? 

How do you manage to live inside 

This tiny stage you can't leave? 

 

Tell me something, if the world is so insane 

Is it making you sane again to 

Let another man tug at the thread 

That pulls up your nodding head? 

 

A dullard strung on the wire 

When the master's gone you hang there 

With your eyes and your limbs so lifeless 

 

Tell me something, if the world is so insane 

Is it making you sane again to 

Let another man tug at the thread 

That pulls up your nodding head? 

 

How did they teach you to be 

Just a happy puppet dancing on a string? 

How do you manage to speak 

Your mouth a frozen grin? 

 

A dullard strung on the wire 

When the master's gone you hang there 

With your eyes and your limbs so lifeless 

 

Tell me something, if the world is so insane 

Is it making you sane again to 

Let another man tug at the thread 

That pulls up your empty wooden head? 

 

Your hollow head, your marble eyes 

Your wooden hands and your metal jaw pins 

All wait in limbo for the man 

Who knows how to move you this way
