Album Close Up. Tom Jones - The Young New Mexican Puppeteer Songtext. In a town near Albuquerque lived a most concerned young boy. He said lately I have noticed folks don't live with peace and joy. With frowns and worries in their faces they're lost and don't know where to go. He said I'll get the people straightened by putting on a puppet show. The young New Mexican puppeteer he saw the people all lived in fear.
By putting on a puppet show. The young New Mexican puppeteer. He saw the people all lived in fear. He thought that maybe they'd listen to. A puppet telling them what to do. You know he got some string and he got some wood. He did some carving and he was good. And folks came running so they could hear. First he carved out young Abe Lincoln. Abe will teach 'em civil rights. Then a King named Martin Luther. So they'd recall his peaceful fight. Old Mark Twain, his wit and wisdom. Will surely show them life is fun. But he smiled with satisfaction
