Morgan Burke – Build Me Up Buttercup lyrics

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, darling
You know that I have from the start
So build me up (build me up)
Buttercup, but 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 run 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
Ooo-oo-ooo, (ooo-oo-ooo)

Why do you build me up (build me up)
Buttercup, but don't break my heart
