在1966年,歌曲為摩城唱片的產物,有指屬於proto-funk及R&B類型。相比起較早之The Supremes組合推出的You Can’t Hurry Love歌曲下,兩首歌曲有互相呼應的關係。歌曲較為矚目的地方在於結他演奏(前奏較明顯)的部份,運用了摩斯密碼的形式與廣播電台的聲音效果有相似(通常被運用在播放新聞前的一段音樂)。

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

Set me free why don’t you, babe
Get out my life why don’t you, babe (ooh-ooh-ooh)
‘Cause you don’t really need me
But you keep me hangin’ on

Why do you keep a comin’ around
Playing with my heart
Why don’t you get out of my life
And let me make a brand-new start
Let me get over you
The way you’ve gotten over me, yeah

Set me free why don’t you, babe
Get out my life why don’t you, baby (ooh-ooh-ooh)
‘Cause you don’t really love me
You just keep me hangin’ on
Now you don’t really need me
You just keep me hangin’ on

You say although we broke up
You still just wanna be friends
But how can we still be friends
When seeing you only breaks my heart again?
(And there ain’t nothing I can do about it)

Yeah

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) hangin’ on

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

Set me free why don’t you, babe
Get out my life why don’t you, babe (ooh-ooh-ooh)
‘Cause you don’t really love me
You just keep me hangin’ on

Why don’t you be a man about it?
And set me free (ooh-ooh-ooh)
Now you don’t care a thing about me
You’re just using me, hey, abusing me

Get out, get out of my life
And let me sleep at night (ooh-ooh-ooh)
‘Cause you don’t really love me
You just keep me hangin’ on (ooh-ooh-ooh)
