Save Ferris – Build Me Up Buttercup lyrics

[Originally by The Foundations]

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 need you still
I need you (i need you) more than anything, 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 run to the door, I can't take any more
It's not you, why don't you treat me well

(hey, hey, hey!) baby, baby, I try to find
(hey, hey, hey!) a little time, and i'll make you mine
(hey, hey, hey!) i'll be home
Waiting by the phone for you
Ooo-oo-ooo, ooo-oo-ooo

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 need you still
I need you (i need you) more than anything, darling
You know that I have from the start
So build me up (build me up) buttercup, don't break my heart

You were a toy but you could be the boy I adore
If you'd just let me go (bah-dah-dah)
Although you're untrue, I'm attracted to you more and more
What more can I say

(hey, hey, hey!) baby, baby, I try to find
(hey, hey, hey!) a little time and i'll make you happy
(hey, hey, hey!) I'm alone
Waiting by the phone for you
Ooo-oo-ooo, ooo-oo-ooo

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 need you still
I need you (i need you) more than anything, darling
You know that I have from the start
So build me up (build me up) buttercup, don't break my

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) I need you still
I need you (i need you) more than anything, darling
You know that I have from the start
So build me up (build me up) buttercup, don't break my heart
