Play Song
Oh, see the little wooden puppet,
Like a painted soldier, stiff and set.
But when you pull his strings,
You'll see him come to life,
Oh, walk, please, Marionette!
Pat, pitter, pat, pat,
Pat, pitter, pat, pat,
Hear how his feet pit-patter!
Pat, pitter, pat, pat,
Pat, pitter, pat, pat,
Walk, little Marionette!

Oh, see the little wooden puppet,
Like a painted soldier, stiff and set.
But when you pull his strings,
You'll see him come to life,
Oh, dance, please, Marionette!
Tap, tippy, tap, tap,
Tap, tippy, tap, tap,
Hear how his feet are tapping!
Tap, tippy, tap, tap,
Tap, tippy, tap, tap,
Dance, little Marionette!

Oh, see the little wooden puppet,
Like a painted soldier, stiff and set.
But when you pull his strings,
You'll see him come to life,
Now run, please, Marionette!
Run, skitter, skatter!
Run, skitter, skatter!
Hear how his feet skit-skatter!
Run, skitter, skatter!
Run, skitter, skatter!
Run, little Marionette!
