This is a slightly revised version of the excellent "version 2" here on U.G.   

Lead in with G7

       C                         E7
Why do you build me up (build me up) Buttercup, baby 
        F                             G
Just to let me down (let me down) and mess me around 
         C                           E7
And then worst of all (worst of all) you never call, baby 
         F                               G
When you say you will (say you will) but I love you still 
       C                          C7
I need you (I need you) more than anyone, darlin' 
    F                         Fm
You know that I have from the start 
   C           G
So build me up Buttercup, 
               F-Em-Dm-C
Don't break my heart 

          C       G                Bb       F                          
"I'll be over at ten," you told me time and again 
             C          F
But you're late, I wait around and then 
  C           G             Bb       F             
I went to the door, I can't take any more 
         C               F
It's not you, you let me down again

 F    C    Dm                 G       
(Hey, hey, hey!) Baby, baby, try to find 
 G    F   Em                        Am            Am/G
(Hey, hey, hey!) A little time and I'll make you mine 
 F                 
I'll be home 
        D7                            G
I'll be beside the phone waiting for you 
 G/F         G/E          G7
Ooo-oo-ooo, ooo-oo-ooo 

           C                         E7
Why do you build me up (build me up) Buttercup, baby

Don't break my heart 

   C         G         Bb           F          
To you I'm a toy but I could be the boy you 
 C                    F
Adore, if you'd just let me know 
   C            G 
Although you're untrue, 
    Bb           F           C
I'm attracted to you all the more 
         F
Why do I need you so 

F    C    Dm                 G       
(Hey, hey, hey!) Baby, baby, try to find 
 G    F   Em                        Am            Am/G
(Hey, hey, hey!) A little time and I'll make you mine 
 F                 
I'll be home 
        D7                            G
I'll be beside the phone waiting for you 
 G/F         G/E          G7
Ooo-oo-ooo, ooo-oo-ooo 

           C                         E7
Why do you build me up (build me up) Buttercup, baby

Pretty darned good. I'd have notated A A/G D/F# Dm/F in the chorus.
Also, the end of the prechorus is really a lot of E (no E/D, E/C#...)

One more thing: "A little time and I'll make you mine" should be an F#7 chord going to an F#7/E
