Chorus:
             C                        E         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                             E     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                          Bb
I need you (I need you) more than anyone, darlin'
     F
You know that I have from the start                   
    C                         G                        F       G
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             F
But you're late, I wait around and then (Bah-dah-dah)
   C          G             Bb      F
I run to the door, I can't take any more
          C               F
It's not you, you let me down again

Bridge:
                 Dm           G
(Hey, hey, hey!) Baby, baby, try to find
                Em7                  A
(Hey, hey, hey!) A little time, and I'll make you happy
                 F
(Hey, hey, hey!) I'll be home
        D7                            G
I'll be beside the phone waiting for you

Ooo-oo-ooo, ooo-oo-ooo

[Chorus]

Verse 2:
    C         G          Bb          F       C
To you I'm a toy but I could be the boy you adore
               F
If you'd just let me know (Bah-dah-dah)
C                  G            Bb        F           C
Although you're untrue, I'm attracted to you all the more
          F
Why do I need you so

Bridge:
                 Dm           G
(Hey, hey, hey!) Baby, baby, try to find
                Em7                  A
(Hey, hey, hey!) A little time, and I'll make you happy
                 F
(Hey, hey, hey!) I'll be home
        D7                            G
I'll be beside the phone waiting for you

Ooo-oo-ooo, ooo-oo-ooo


[Chorus]

        D                           C
I need you (I need you) more than anyone, baby
     G
You know that I have from the start

[Fade out]
