When you get in trouble and you don't know right from wrong Give a little whistle! Give a little whistle! When you meet temptation and the urge is very strong Give a little whistle! Give a little whistle!
Not just a little squeak, pucker up and blow And if your whistle's weak, yell, "Jiminy Cricket!" Right!
Take the straight and narrow path And if you start to slide Give a little whistle! Give a little whistle! And always let your conscience be your guide
Pinocchio I've got no strings To hold me down To make me fret, or make me frown I had strings But now I'm free There are no strings on me
Hi-ho the me-ri-o That's the only way to go I want the world to know Nothing ever worries me
One sheet music version prints the bridge as this stanza: Hi-ho the me-ri-o I'm as happy as can be 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 But you can see There are no strings on me Dutch puppet You have no strings Your arms is free To love me by the Zuider Zee Ya, ya, ya If you would woo I'd bust my strings for you French puppet You've got no strings Comme ci comme ca Your savoire-faire is ooh la la! I've got strings But entre nous I'd cut my strings for you Russian puppet Down where the Volga flows There's a Russian rendezvous Where me and Ivan go But I'd rather go with you, hey!
