Set me free, why don't you, babe
Get out of my life, why don't you, babe
'Cause you don't really love me
You just keep me hanging' on
You don't really need me
But you keep me hanging' on

Why do you keep coming around
Playing with my heart?
Why don't you get out of my life
And let me make a new start?
Let me get over you
The way you've gotten over me

Set me free, why don't you, babe
Get out my life, why don't you, babe
'Cause you don't really love me
You know it, you keep me hanging' on
Now you don't really want me
You just keep me hanging' on

You say although we broke up
You still wanna be just friends
But how can we still be friends
When seeing you only breaks my heart again
And get over it, baby, get over it

Whoa whoa whoa, set me free, why don't you, babe
Whoa whoa whoa, get out my life, why don't you, babe
Get out, get out, get out
Set me free, why don't you, babe
Get out my life, why don't you, babe
(You don't really love me) you don't really love me
But you keep me hanging' on
Oh, but you keep me danglin' right there
You don't really need me
You know, you don't really need me
But you keep me hanging' on

You claim you still care for me
But your heart and soul need to be free
Now that you got your freedom
You want to still hold on to me
You don't want me all yourself
So let me find somebody else, hey, hey, hey

(Why don't you be a man about it?)
Why don't you be a man about it?
(And set me free)
And set me free
(Now you don't care a thing)
You don't care a thing about me
(You're just using me)
You know, you know it, you know it

(Go on, get out, get out of my life)
Get out ouf my life
(And let me sleep at night)
I want to sleep at night
('Cause you don't really love me)
You don't really love me
(You just keep me)
You know you just, you know, you know you know it

(Why don't you be a man about it?)
Why don't you be a man about it?
(And set me free)
Man up, man up
(You don't care a thing about me)
You don't care a thing about me
You're just using, you're using me
You know, you know it, you know it

(And let me sleep at night)
Get to steppin', baby, get to steppin'
('Cause you don't really love me)
You don't really love me
(You just keep me)
You keep me, keep me, you keep me

Keep me
(Keep, keep me hangin' on)
(Keep, keep me hangin' on)

Set me free, why don't you, babe
Get out of my life, why don't you, babe, ooh
You don't really love me
But you keep me hanging' on, ooh
You don't really need me
But you keep me hanging' on

Set me free, why don't you, babe
Get out of my life, why don't you, babe, ooh
You don't really love me
But you keep me hanging' on, ooh
You don't really need me
But you keep me hanging' on
