Feeling a tad whimsical tonight myself, and in light of up and coming elections.....thought this most appropriate....The Pollies lament or is it :)

Like a Puppet on a string!


We wonder if one day that you'll say that, you'll care,
If you'll say you'll love us madly, why gladly we'll be there
Like a Puppet on a string!!

Life is just like a merry go round
With all the fun of the fair
One day we're falling down on the ground
Then we're flying in air
Are we leading you on?
Tomorrow we could be gone!!! ah huh, ah huh, ah huh,

We wonder if one day that you'll say that you'll vote
If you'll say you'll back us gladly, why grandly we'll tote
like a Puppet on a string!!

We may win on the roundabout
Then we'll lose on the swings
In or out, there is never a doubt
Just who's pulling the strings, ah huh, ah huh, ah huh, ah huh...

We wonder if on the day, that you'll say, that you'll dare
If you'll say you'll trust us blindly, then kindly tick the square
Like a puppet on a string, uh huh uh huh hmm YEAH!

Like little puppets on a string....hee hee haw haww

I think we are all puppets on someone's string these days. Perhaps it's time for all of us to cut those chords and get down to business!

Whimsical indeed Cherry Pie but with a lot of truth in it when it comes to Politicians that is for sure. Should send this to your mag rags.
