"Puppet Boy" as written by Mark Allen Mothersbaugh and Gerald V. Casale....
Wake up puppet boy!

Get up puppet boy
You've got a job to do
Even so you're free to go
Where your master tells you to

Listen puppet boy
Before you disobey
Consider that the strings attached
Could make a big change in your ways

Puppet boy
It?s the little things that count
Little problems little minds
Little points of view

Puppet boy
It?s the little things add up
Getting bigger pull the trigger
Little things like you

Stand up puppet boy
Time to start the show
You'd better do some brand new moves
They paid a lot to watch you go

No!

what's that puppet boy?
Don't tell me what to do
What's that puppet boy?
I'm not a freak like you
What's that puppet boy?
I?ll move when I want to
I can't hear you puppet boy
Now dance dance dance

Stay out of bed
Unless you wanna get wet
I'm a boy not a toy
And I'm not through yet

Stay out of bed
Unless you wanna get wet
Now wake up puppet boy

Listen puppet boy
You're not a robot slave
Consider that no strings attached
Could ever make you misbehave

Puppet boy
It?s the little things in life
Little problems little minds
Little points of view

Puppet boy
It?s the little things that count
Getting bigger pull the trigger
Little things like you

Puppet boy
It?s the little things add up
Getting bigger pull the trigger
Little things like you

Puppet boy
It?s the little things in life
Little problems little minds
Little points of view

Puppet boy
It?s the little things that count
Getting bigger pull the trigger
Little things like you

Now wake up puppet boy!

    General CommentThis is the fun thing about Devo - their songs can be widely open to interpretation. For this song, there is no direct talking point but interpretations can range anywhere from the small to the large. I think they're talking about the life of postal workers, though.
