Build Me Up Buttercup

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 (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 go 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 happy
I'll be home, I'll be beside the phone,
Waiting for you.

Ooooh (Ooooh)

To you I'm a toy but I could be the boy
you adore
If you just let me now.
And though you're untrue, I'm attracted to you
all the more.
Why do I need you so?

(Hey, hey, hey)Baby, baby...
