"Puppet on a String" was the winning song of the Eurovision Song Contest 1967 held in Vienna, Austria. The song was performed by Sandie Shaw, ten years after her country's debut in 1957. This was the first entry to win in English, and the first entry to win out of five for the United Kingdom.

Lyrics

I wonder if one day that you'll say that you care
If you say you love me madly, I'll gladly be there
Like a puppet on a string

Love is just like a merry-go-round
With all the fun of the fair
One day I'm feeling down on the ground
Then I'm up in the air
Are you leading me on?
Tomorrow, will you be gone?

I wonder if one day that you'll say that you care
If you say you love me madly, I'll gladly be there
Like a puppet on a string

I may win on the roundabout
Then I'll lose on the swings
In or out, there is never a doubt
Just who's pulling the strings
I'm all tied up in you
But where's it leading me to?

I wonder if one day that you'll say that you care
If you say you love me madly, I'll gladly be there
Like a puppet on a string

I wonder if one day that you'll say that you care
If you say you love me madly, I'll gladly be there
Like a puppet on a string

Like a puppet on a string[1]

Trivia

  • There were microphone troubles in 1967, which meant that the long "I wonder" at the beginning was barely picked up. However, Shaw did not stop singing, and as she continued to sing, the microphone was working again.
  • Sandie Shaw admitted to not liking this song.
