lyrics

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 anything, darlin'
You know that I have from the start
So 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

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

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 anything, darlin'
You know that I have from the start
So build me up Buttercup, don't break my heart

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

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

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 anything, darlin'
You know that I have from the start
So build me up Buttercup, don't break my hear
