"I've Got No Strings" (or "I Got No Strings") is a song originally featured in Pinocchio. It is performed by Pinocchio as he stars in his first and only show for Stromboli. Other puppets, representing different countries, join in throughout the show.

Barbra Streisand did a cover of the song in the 1960s.

This song was included on the Disney Sing Along Songs VHS You Can Fly.

Lyrics

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 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

Dutch marionette:
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

French marionette:
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

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

Hey!

Pinocchio:
There are no strings on me

Trivia

  • Several lines from the song are briefly sung by Ultron in the 2015 Marvel film Avengers: Age of Ultron, soon after he gains sentience and establishes his base of operations in Sokovia. A snippet of the original song, as performed by Dickie Jones, is heard immediately thereafter. A dark rendition of the song features heavily in promotional trailers for the film. The song references Ultron as a dark parallel of Pinocchio.[1]
  • In 2016, the song was used in a Beats commercial to promote wireless headphones. It featured Pinocchio (as originally performed by Dickie Jones), and a cast of A-list musicians and celebrities, as they lip-synch along to the lyrics.
