Chorus
                      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 (build me up) Buttercup, 
                           Am
Don't break my heart

"I'll be over at ten", you told me time and again 
             C                    G
But you're late, I wait around and then 
C              G              Bflat     F             
I went to the door, I can't take any more 
         C                 G
It's not you, you let me down again 
  G   Gflat F        
(Hey, hey, hey!) Baby, baby, try to find 
 F     F#   G                          
(Hey, hey, hey!) A little time and I'll make you mine 
 G   Gflat F                 
(Hey, hey, hey!) I'll be home 
       F#m                              G
I'll be beside the phone waiting for you 

Ooo-oo-ooo, ooo-oo-ooo

You were my toy but I could be the boy you adore 
  C           G
If you'd just let me know 
   C       G           Bflat        F 
Although you're untrue, 
                               C
I'm attracted to you all the more

Why do I need you so
