Episode Version

The Chipmunks:
Set me free, why don't cha, babe?
Get out my life, why don't cha, babe? (woah-oh)
You don't really need me
But you keep me hangin' on

Why do you keep a-coming around
Playing with my heart? (oh)
Why don't you get out of my life
And let me make a new start? (oh)

Let me get over you
The way you've gotten over me, hey

Set me free, why don't cha, babe?
Let me be, why don't cha, babe? (woah)
'Cause you don't really love me
You just keep me hangin' on (oh)
Now you don't really want me
You just keep me hangin' on

You say when 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

You're just using me
Abusing me

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
