I've Got No Strings is a song from Disney's 1940 animated feature film Pinocchio. It is sung by Pinocchio and the marionettes in Stromboli's show. It was performed by Pinocchio's voice actor, the late Dickie Jones, with the marionettes being performed by the late Patricia Page, the late Mae Questel, and the late Mel Blanc.

The song was later used in the 2000 live action television film retelling of the story Geppetto. This version only featured Pinocchio singing and was performed by his actor Seth Adkins.

LyricsEdit

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

Hi-ho the merry-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

You have no strings
Your arms is free
To love me by the Zuyder Zee
Ja, ja, ja
If you would woo
I'd bust my strings for you

You've got no strings
Comme ci comme ça
Your savoir-faire is ooh la la!
I've got strings
But entre nous
I'd cut my strings for you

Down where the Volga flows
There's a Russian rendezvous
Where me and Ivan go
But I'd rather go with you

Hey!

Hey! Hey! Hey! Hey! Hey! Hey! Hey!

Pinocchio: Hey!

There are no strings on me
