How To Play

INTRO
Em

VERSE 1
 Em                                        Em9/D
"You're so free, " that's what everybody's tell - ing me
                       3/4
                       C            | D            | Em     | |
Yet I feel I'm like an outward-bound, pushed around, refugee
Em                                      Em9/D
Something's wrong, got a feeling that I don't belong
                      3/4
                      C          | D           | Em            | |
As if I had come from outer space, out of place, like King Kong
 
 
CHORUS
3/4                                   2/4         4/4
C-5             | C-5/Gb            | C    Eb-5 | C-5   |
I'm a marionette, just  a marionette, pull the    string
3/4                                2/4         3/4
C-5             | C-5/Gb         | C    Eb-5 | C-5           | C-5/Gb |
I'm a marionette, everybody's pet, just as     long as I sing
3/4                                     2/4          4/4
Bb-5             | Bb-5/Fb            | Bb    Db-5 | Bb-5  |
I'm  a marionette, see    my pirouette, round and    round
3/4                                    2/4         3/4
Bb-5            | Bb-5/Fb            | Bb   Db-5 | Bb-5           | Bb-5/Fb |
I'm a marionette, I'm    a marionette, just a      silly old clown

VERSE 2
Em                                 Em9/D
Like a doll, like a puppet with no will at all
                     3/4
                     C          | D          | Em         | |
And somebody told me how to talk, how to walk, how to fall

VERSE 3
Em                                    Em9/D
Can't complain, I've got no-one but myself to blame
                      3/4
                      C              | D           | Em         | |
Something's happening I can't control, lost my hold, is it safe?
