Music Mondays: "I've Got No Strings"

I've Got No Strings on Me is Pinocchio's big number in his film. Up until this point in the film, we've heard both Jiminy and Geppetto sing, but not Pinocchio. The Little Wooden Head has been sold to a maniacal showman named Stromboli, who forces him to perform in a traveling puppet show. Stromboli proves to be an abusive tyrant and Pinocchio can only escape his clutches with the help of the Blue Fairy who implores him to return to Geppetto's house immediately.

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 merry-o
That's the only way to 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
