Do you remember what you told me
You said you're holding me up, me up
Darling yeah you sold me
When you said you're holding me up, me up

So get your feet on the floor and you're making a stand now
You get what you get so get,
So get what you can
But just remember what you told me
You said you're holding me up, me up yeah

Holding me up
Holding me up
Holding me up
Holding me up
Me up

Remember what you told me
You're holding me up, me up
Sweating and you sold me
When you said you're holding me up, me up

Now get your feet on the floor and you're making a stand now
You get what you get,
So get what you can
But just remember what you told me
You said you're holding me up, me up now

Holding me up
Holding me up
Holding me up
Holding me up
Yeah me up

    General CommentMy favorite Dandy Warhol song ever! Love the melody. Sounds like betrayal on some level. She promised to stick by him, supporting him, but didn't come through.

    General Commentdefinately agree. i think sometimes promises are made to be broken. we might let ourselves love someone, and we might make unrealistic promises even though we know neither of us can come through.

    General CommentOne of my favorite songs of all time. Always seems to cheer me up.

    The lyrics are self explanatory.

    The first time I saw the dandy warhols live, I had no idea who they were, and had never heard this song before. I was lucky enough to have them perform this, and they extended it out to about 10 minutes at least. It was mindblowing. I became a lifelong fan and this is probably my favorite dw song.
