[Am]So many years [Em]ago, many more than [C]I'd even care [G/B]to bear in my [Am]mind
From the dark[Em]est of all places [G]I found [D/F#]you
[Am]All the [Em]limbs in their right [C]places and a [G/B]heart made of real [Am]gold
Sell me your [Em]little doll, oh [G]sir, I ask [D/F#]you kind
[C]Every [Em]night I [Dadd11]returned to [C]watch them- The [Em]master and the [Dadd11]puppet in the [C]show
He said "Oh [Em]no, [Dadd11]I cannot [C]sell him. Priceless he [Em]is, [Dadd11]masterpiece of [C]mine."
Please [Am]sell me your [Em]puppet, sir[C], name your [G/B]price oh please!
What[Am]ever you may [Em]ask, ten[G]fold the price I [D/F#]pay
[Am]Did I not [Em]make it clear? [C]This debate is [G/B]over
I will [Am]never [Em]part from this [G]puppet, my [D/F#]son
[C]With hungry [Em]eyes I [Dadd11]followed them [C]all night, the blind [Em]master and the [Dadd11]puppet he had [C]made
No, [Em]sir, to [Dadd11]sell is not my [C]will! The doll is [Em]mine, even [Dadd11]if I have to [C]kill
[Bb]So it shall [Dm]be, if [C]this is what it [Bb]takes. [Dm]Greed is truly [C]blinder than [Bb]me
Heart of [Dm]gold [C]is what you [Bb]wish for? So this [Dm]little boy [C]wants to be a [Bb]puppet, for real
..Dm C Bb.. Dm C G
[Bb] [Dm] [C] [F] [Bb] [Dm] [C] [G]  
[C]So I have the [Dadd11]golden [D5]heart
[C]Now only [Dadd11]needing the [B]voice of [D5]the master
[C]Never feel [G/B]hunger[Dadd11], never grow [E]older
My [C]dream was to [D5]be a [B]star in a real puppet [Am]show
..Em C G/B Am Em G D/F#
[Am] [Em] [C] [G/B] [Am] [Em] [G] [D/F#]  
[Am] [Em] [C] [G/B] [Am] [Em] [G] [D/F#]  
[Am] [Em] [C] [G/B] [Am] [Em] [G] [D/F#]  
[Am]It's so [Am6]hard to [Am]remember my [Dm]life.. The [Esus4]times be[E]fore the [Gm]show
Can I [Gm6]ever [Gm]cut off the [Cm]strings? "[Dsus4]Take a bow, now [D]dance and sing..." ([Am]Sing!)
Would you [Am6]turn me [Am]to a [Dm]child again? "No, [Esus4]never, I [E]am your [Gm]guide"
You can [Gm6]see a small [Gm]grin on the [Cm]face
Of the [F5]master, [Dm]when the [G5]puppet's [Em]in his place
Be [Am]careful what you wish for, wishes might come a[E]live[G]
[(G)]The twines are pulling me every day and night[E] [Am]
[(Am)]The show, the glitter and all the fame, I'd give away for a [E]life[G]
[(G)]Some things can end with a word, they say
This only ends with a sharp [E]knife ([Am]Knife!)
[Bb]Bb [Dm]Dm [C]C [Dm]Dm [Bb]Bb [Dm]C [Gsus4]G [G]E (Strum out on variations of Am..)
