the me-ri-o
That's the only way to go
I want the world to know
Nothing ever worries me

I've got no strings
So I have fun
I'm not tied up to anyone
I've got no politics, no influential friend or two
I've got ideas, but it's nothin' I picked up at school
I might be running, but I'm never running
That's the only way to go
I want the world to know
Nothing ever worries me

I've got no strings
So I have fun
I'm not tied up to anyone
They've got strings
the me-ri-o
That's the only way to go
I want the world to know
Nothing ever worries me

I've got no strings
So I have fun
I'm not tied up to anyone
the me-ri-o
That's the only way to go
I want the world to know
Nothing ever worries me

I've got no strings
So I have fun
I'm not tied up to anyone
That's the only way to go
I want the world to know
Nothing ever worries me

I've got no strings
So I have fun
I'm not tied up to anyone
They've got strings
the me-ri-o
That's the only way to go
I want the world to know
Nothing ever worries me

I've got no strings
So I have fun
I'm not tied up to anyone
look up my friend, means justify the end
There's nothing below you
When the world falls away

pull over to the shoulder
I've got something to say to you
Old hollow eyes
Got no ties
Walking by the light of the moon

Hey shiny boots
With strings and flutes
Rising like a crazy balloon

Close your
miss Mayberry
Sitting on the porch drinking ice cold cherry coke
Where everything is black and white

Picking on a six string
When people pass by
It's time to leave the past in the past and lace up a new set of shoe strings

I want the world to know
I've got your back
Through up and down see
it was just the way you held me 
When my world was hangin' by a string 
Maybe it was just the way you knew me 
When I didn't know myself when
that's not news to me
The flood is here it will carry you
And I've got work to do

Come on home, the team you're hitched to has a mind of its own
But
that's not news to me
The flood is here it will carry you
And I've got work to do

Come on home, the team you're hitched to has a mind of its own
But
I've been a girl with her skirt pulled high
Been the outcast never running with mascara eyes
I see the world
As a candy store

With a cigarette smile
I've been a girl with her skirt pulled high
Been the outcast never running with mascara eyes
I see the world
As a candy store
With a cigarette smile
So soon to say it's over 
Lets see what happens later on 
I'm 16 the world just opened wide
I've got a pocket full of change 
I'm tired
Money bought you a little paradise
All created by perfect little lies
But I'm tired of waiting in the wings
I want to sing: la la la...
I've
I've been a girl with her skirt pulled high
Been the outcast never running with mascara eyes
I see the world
As a candy store
With a cigarette
Making change for a jaw breaker was the first thing that I did

I got traded for a pocket knife, two marbles and some string
Wound up on a railroad
I got my life back
So I school the fools about the fast track
I get static from the style of my technique
Profanity, the blatant way in which I
One time ago a crazy dream came to me
I dreamt I was walkin' into World War Three
I went to the doctor the very next day
To see what kinda words he
Some time ago a crazy dream came to me,
I dreamt I was walkin' into World War Three,
I went to the doctor the very next day
To see what kinda
Some time ago a crazy dream came to me
I dreamt I was walkin' into World War Three,
I went to the doctor the very next day
To see what kinda words
how
That I'll make it without you

You got me hanging by a string and tied up in chains
Girl you gotta set me free cause you're holding the reigns
