“Build Me Up Buttercup” Abbey Glover Lyrics

(originally by The Foundations)

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 and 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 happy
I’ll be home, I’ll be beside the phone waiting for you
You, you, ooh ooh

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 and don’t break my heart

To you, I’m a toy, but I could be the boy 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 happy
I’ll be home, I’ll be beside the phone waiting for you
You, you, ooh ooh

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 and don’t break my heart

I need you more than anyone, darling
You know that I have from the start
So build me up
Buttercup and don’t break my heart
