Kirsti Sparboe Dukkemann
"Dukkemann" ("Puppet man") was the Norwegian entry in the Eurovision Song Contest 1967, performed in Norwegian by Kirsti Sparboe.
The song is a ballad, in which Sparboe compares life to being a marionette. She describes a puppet which appeared to take a somewhat cynical view of the world, only to have its string cut. Thus, she sings, her listeners should remember to grasp life with both hands, like the dancing puppets.
At the close of voting, it had received 2 points, placing 14th in a field of 17.
