Build Me Up Buttercup

Lyrics

play Why do you build me up Buttercup, baby
play Just to let me down and mess me around
play And then worst of all you never call, baby
play When you say you will but I love you still
play I need you more than anyone, darlin'
play You know that I have from the start
play So build me up Buttercup, don't break my heart

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

play Baby, baby, try to find
play A little time and I'll make you happy
play I'll be home
play I'll be beside the phone waiting for you

play Why do you build me up Buttercup, baby
play Just to let me down and mess me around
play And then worst of all you never call, baby
play When you say you will but I love you still
play I need you more than anyone, darlin'
play You know that I have from the start
play So build me up Buttercup, don't break my heart

play To you I'm a toy but I could be the boy you adore
play If you'd just let me know
play Although you're untrue,
play I'm attracted to you all the more
play Why do I need you so

play Baby, baby, try to find
play A little time and I'll make you happy
play I'll be home
play I'll be beside the phone waiting for you

play Why do you build me up Buttercup, baby
play Just to let me down and mess me around
play And then worst of all you never call, baby
play When you say you will but I love you still
play I need you more than anyone, darlin'
play You know that I have from the start
play So build me up Buttercup, don't break my heart

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