Well you say I'm the greatest bound for glory but the word is out and I learned
I got the latest side of the story you're pullin' out before you get burned
Your hands are squeezin' me down to the bone I've never seen you breakin' before
Stands to reason I'm a leaving you alone what are you taking me for
Settin' me up to put me down making me out to be your clown
Settin' me up to put me down you better give it up baby quit your messin' around
[ guitar ]
You 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
Settin' me up to put me down...
Settin' me up to put me down...
