"Settin' Me Up" as written by and Mark Knofler....
Well, you say I'm the greatest bound for glory
But the word is out and I learned
I got the latest side of the story
You're pullin' out before you get burned.

Your hands are squeezin' me down to the bone
I've never seen you breakin' before
Stands to reason I'm a leaving you alone
What are you taking me for.

Settin' me up to put me down
Making me out to be your clown
Settin' me up to put me down
You better give it up baby, quit your messin' around.

--- Instrumental ---

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

Settin' me up to put me down
Making me out to be your clown
Settin' me up to put me down
You better give it up baby, quit your messin' around.

Settin' me up to put me down
Making me out to be your clown
Settin' me up to put me down
You better give it up baby, quit your messin' around...
