Lyrics

Quinn with The Cheerios:
Set me free why don't-cha baby
Get out my life why don't-cha baby
'Cause you don't really love me
You just keep me hangin' on (The Cheerios: Ooh, ooh)
You don't really need me
But you keep me hangin' on

Why do you keep on comin' 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
Hey!

Set me free why don't-cha baby
Let me be why don't-cha baby
'Cause you don't really love me
You just keep me hangin' on (The Cheerios: Ooh, ooh)
No, 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 seeing you only breaks my heart again

Quinn:
And there ain't nothing I can do about it (The Cheerios: Whoa whoa whoa)

Quinn with The Cheerios:
Set me free why don't-cha baby (The Cheerios: Whoa whoa whoa)
Get out my life why don't-cha baby (The Cheerios: Ooh, ooh)
You don't really love me
But just keep me hangin' on

You claim you still care for me
But your heart still needs to be free
Now that you've got your freedom
You wanna still hold on to me
You don't want me for all yourself

So let me find somebody else
Hey hey

Why don't-cha be a man about it
And set me free
Now, you don't care a thing about me
You're just using me (The Cheerios: Ooh, ooh)

Go on, get out, get out of my life
And let me sleep at night, please
'Cause you don't really love me

You just keep me hangin' on

Trivia

  • The original version of the song is used as background music in Pilot, while the Cheerios are performing at the beginning of the episode. This was mashed up with Ice Cube's, You Can Do It.
  • During the song, Quinn is performing during what looks like a Cheerios practice, despite the fact that she, Brittany and Santana are the only Cheerios that are academically eligible to be a part of the squad, due to Mr. Schue failing most of the Cheerios in Spanish Class.
