Verse 1:

A
You say I'm the greatest, bound for glory
				 E   
Well the word is out and I learned
A
I got the latest side of the story
        G          D              A
You're pulling out before you get burned


Verse 2:

A
Well your hands are squeezing me, down to the bone
                               E
I never saw you breaking no law
A
Stands to reason I've got to leave you alone
G          D         A
 What you take me for


Chorus:

    A                              D
Cos you're setting me up to put me down
             E                        A
You're just making me out to be your clown
           A                        D
You're just setting me up to put me down
            E
You better give it up (give it up), give it up
                        A
Quit your messing round


Fills in chorus:

  You're setting me up

(next four lines of chorus, fills are exactly the same)
            

Verse 3:

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