Det var en søt liten dukkemann
En så fri og freidig og glad
Han lo av de andre små dukker, han, å ja

For denne særegne dukkemann
Tenk, han var skarpsindig som få
Han sa at de henger jo alle mann i tråd

Han lo av de dumme små dukker som danset
På ordre frå noe de ikke forstod
Han lo så han hikstet, men plutselig stanset han opp
For hans tråd den ble klippet i to

Og se vår særegne dukkemann
Han forsto: hvis dansen skal gå
Da må man nok sprelle som alle mann i tråd

Han lo av de dumme små dukker som danset
På ordre frå noe de ikke forstod
Han lo så han hikstet, men plutselig stanset han opp
For hans tråd den ble klippet i to

Så ble vår særegne dukkemann
Uten liv og måtte forstå:
En tråd har en snelle, så hvis man vil telle
Da må man nok sprelle som alle mann i tråd

Translation
There was a sweet little puppet man
Someone so free and bold and happy
He was laughing at all the other puppets, him, oh yes

Because this particular puppet man
Imagine, he was sharper than most
He said, all of them are hanging on a string

He laughed at all the stupid little puppets dancing
At the command of something they didn’t understand
He howled with laughter, but suddenly stopped
Because his string was cut in half

And look, our particular puppet man
He understood: if the dance is to go on
Then you have to jump about like all on a string

He laughed at all the stupid little puppets dancing
At the command of something they didn’t understand
He howled with laughter, but suddenly stopped
Because his string was cut in half

Thus our particular puppet man became
Lifeless and had to understand:
A string has a spool and if you want to count
You must jump like everyone on a string
