[Intro]
C  Em  F  Dm

[Pre-Chorus]
           C                          Em
Why do you build me up (build me up), buttercup, baby,
        F                              Dm
Just to let me down (let me down), and mess me around.
         C                                Em
And then worst of all (worst of all), you never call baby when
    F                                Dm
You say you will (say you will), but I love you still.

[Chorus]
       C                          C7
I need you, I need you, more than anyone, darling.
F                         Fm
More than I have from the start.
    C                          G                         C
So, build me up (build me up), buttercup, don't break my heart.

[Verse]
         C       G                 Bb       F
"I'll be over at ten", you told me time and again,
         C                Dm
But I'll wait, I'll wait around and then.
       C         G             Bb      F
I went up to the door, I can't take anymore,
         C               Dm
It's not you, you let me down again.

G7         Dm
(Hey, hey, hey) Baby, baby, try to find,
G7         Em                      A
(Hey, hey, hey) A little time, and I'll make you mine.
F                        Dm                         C
I'll be home, I'll be beside the phone waiting for you.

Ooh-ooh-ooh, ooh-ooh-ooh.

[Pre-Chorus]
           C                          Em
Why do you build me up (build me up), buttercup, baby,
        F                              Dm
Just to let me down (let me down), and mess me around.
         C                                Em
And then worst of all (worst of all), you never call baby when
    F                                Dm
You say you will (say you will), but I love you still.

[Chorus]
       C                          C7
I need you, I need you, more than anyone, darling.
F                         Fm
More than I have from the start.
    C                          G                         C
So, build me up (build me up), buttercup, don't break my heart.

[Verse]
   C         G          Bb           F
To you I'm a toy, but I could be the boy
     C                   Dm
You adore, if you'd just let me know.
  C               G           Bb         F
Although you're untrue, I'm attracted to you
        C              Dm
All the more. Why do I need you so?

G7         Dm
(Hey, hey, hey) Baby, baby, try to find,
G7         Em                      A
(Hey, hey, hey) A little time, and I'll make you mine.
F                        Dm                         C
 I'll be home, I'll be beside the phone waiting for you.

Ooh-ooh-ooh, ooh-ooh-ooh.

[Pre-Chorus]
           C                          Em
Why do you build me up (build me up), buttercup, baby,
        F                              Dm
Just to let me down (let me down), and mess me around.
         C                                Em
And then worst of all (worst of all), you never call baby when
    F                                Dm
You say you will (say you will), but I love you still.

[Chorus]
       C                          C7
I need you, I need you, more than anyone, darling.
F                         Fm
More than I have from the start.
    C                          G                         C
So, build me up (build me up), buttercup, don't break my heart.
