Build Me Up Buttercup

Chorus:
Why do you build me up (build me up)
Buttercup, baby, just to let me down (let me down)
And mess me around
And then worst of all (worst of all)
You never call, baby, when you say you will (say you will)
But I love you still
I need you (I need you) — more than anyone, darlin’
You know that I have from the start
So build me up (build me up)
Buttercup, don’t break my heart

“I’ll be over at ten”, you told me time and again
But you’re late, I wait around and then
I run to the door, I can’t take any more
It’s not you, you let me down again

Pre-chorus:
(Hey, hey, hey!) Baby, baby, try to find
(Hey, hey, hey!) A little time,
and I’ll make you mine
(Hey, hey, hey!) I’ll be home
I’ll be beside the phone waiting for you
Ooo-oo-ooo, ooo-oo-ooo

(Chorus)

You were my toy but I could be the boy you adore
If you’d just let me know (bah-dah-dah)
Although you’re untrue, I’m attracted to you
All the more, Why do I need you so

(Pre-chorus)

(Chorus)

I-I-I need you-oo-oo more than anyone, baby
You know that I have from the start
So build me up (build me up)
Buttercup, don’t break my heart
