"I'm a Marionette (ABBA cover)" as written by Bjoern K Ulvaeus and Benny Andersson....
You’re so free
That’s what everybody’s telling me
Yet I feel I’m like an outward bound
Pushed around refugee

Something’s wrong
Got a feeling that I don’t belong
As if I have come from out of space
Out of place, like King-Kong

I’m a marionette
Just a marionette
Pull the string
I’m a marionette
Everybody’s pet
Just as long as I sing
I’m a marionette
See my pirouette
’Round and ’round
I’m a marionette
I’m a marionette
Just a silly old clown

Like a doll
Like a puppet with no will at all
And somebody taught me how to talk
How to walk, how to fall

Can’t complain
I’ve got no one but myself to blame
Something’s happening
I can’t control
Lost my hold, it’s insane

I’m a marionette
Just a marionette
Pull the string
I’m a marionette
Everybody’s pet
Just as long as I sing
I’m a marionette
See my pirouette
’Round and ’round
I’m a marionette
I’m a marionette
Just a silly old clown

Look this way
Just a little smile
That’s what they say
You’ll look better on the photograph
If you laugh, that’s OK!!

I’m a marionette
Just a marionette
Pull the string
I’m a marionette
Everybody’s pet
Just as long as I sing
I’m a marionette
See my pirouette
’Round and ’round
I’m a marionette
I’m a marionette
Just a silly old clown

You’re so free
That’s what everybody’s telling me
Yet I feel I’m like an outward bound
Pushed around refugee

    General CommentI love this song because it is so true! it's about how these pop and rap songs have no meaning because they don't come from the singers they are just the performers and they are doing what they are told to get the money and credit for it.
