Say I'm the greatest and bound for glory
Well the word is out and I learned
Got the latest side of the story
Pulling out before you get burned

Well your hands are squeezing me down to the bone
I never saw you breaking no law
Stands to reason I've got to leave you alone
What are you taking me for?

Setting me up, put me down
Making me out to be your clown
Setting me up, put me down
You better give it up, baby
Quit your messing around

Think I care about your reaction
You think I don't understand
All you wanted was a piece of the action
Now you talk about another man

Setting me up, put me down
Making me out to be your clown
Setting me up, put me down
You better give it up, baby
Quit your messing around

Setting me up, put me down
Making me out to be your clown
Setting me up, put me down
You better give it up, baby
You gotta quit your messing around
