Please Don't Drag That String Around
O. Blackwell/W. Scott
You like to keep me dangling on a string
'Cause you know without you my life don't mean a thing
So I beg you
Please don't drag that string around, oh no
Well, what if it should break
Oh, tell me, what would I do then

Keep that string up off the ground
Oh, yeah, remember my heart is tied to the other end

Yes, I?m your puppet, my heart is in your hand
One twist of the wrist and I jump to your command
So I beg you
Please don't drag that string around, oh no
Well, what if it should break
What would I do then

Baby, keep that string up off the ground
Oh, yeah, remember my heart is tied to the other end

I feel inside me, as sure as anything
One day I?ll mean more to you than a puppet on a string
So I beg you
Please don't drag that string around, oh no
Well, what if it should break
Oh, tell me, what would I do then

Keep that string up off the ground
Oh, yeah, remember my heart is tied to the other end
