Temptations – 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, 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, you let me down again



(Hey, hey, hey!) Baby, baby, try to find

(Hey, hey, hey!) A little time, and I'll make you happy

(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, 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, 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 (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 happy

(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, 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, don't break my heart



I need you (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
