TITLE: Build Me Up Buttercup
Lyrics and Chords


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

/ C - Em - / F - G - / : / C - Bb - / 
   / F - Dm - / C - G - GF EmD C G /

"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

/ C G Bb F / C - F - / : 

{Bridge}
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

/ FC Dm - G / G Em - A / AG F / D - G - /

{Refrain}

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

{Bridge, Refrain}
