(Brian Holland; Lamont Dozier; Edward Holland, Jr.)

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 just keep me hangin' on

You don't really need me
You just keep me hangin' on

Why do you keep a 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
Let me be, why don't you babe
'Cause you don't really love me
You just keep me hangin' on

You don't really want me
You just keep me hangin' on

You say although we broke up
You still wanna be just friends
But how can we still be friends
When seein' you only breaks my heart again

And there ain't nothing I can do about it!

Set me free, why don't you babe
Get out my life, why don't you babe
Set me free, why don't cha babe
Get out my life, why don't cha babe

You claim you still care for me
But your heart and soul needs to be free

Now that you've got your freedom
You wanna still hold on to me

You don't want me for yourself
So let me find somebody else, oh

Why don't you be a woman about it
And set me free
Now you don't care a thing about it
You're just using me

Get out, get out, get out of my life
And let me sleep at night
'Cause you don't really love me
You just keep me hangin' on...
