The Foundations - Build me up buttercup
Tekst en muziek: Mike d’Abo en Tony Macaulay
(1969)






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



“I’ll be over at ten”, you told me time and again
But you’re late, I wait around and then, bah-dah-dah
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
Hey, hey, hey! I’ll be home
I’ll be beside the phone waiting for you
Ohoho, ohoho



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



You were my toy, but I could be the boy you adore
If you’d just let me know, bah-dah-dah
Although you’re untrue, I’m attracted to you all the more
Why do I need you so



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
Ohoho, ohoho



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



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