"Build Me Up Buttercup"

by The Foundations

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

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 went to the door,

I can't take any more
It's not you,

You let me down again

Hey, hey, hey

Baby, baby, try to find 

Hey, hey, hey

A little time and I'll make you mine


I'll be home
I'll be beside the phone

Waiting for you
Ooh ooh ooh,

ooh ooh ooh

 

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

Buttercup,

Don't break my heart
