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 need you still
I need you (I need you) more than anything, 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 went to the door, I can’t take any more
It’s not you, why do you treat me bad
(Hey, hey, hey!) Baby, baby, try to find
(Hey, hey, hey!) A little time and I’ll make you mine
(Hey, hey, hey!) I’ll be home
waiting by the phone for you
Ooo-oo-ooo, ooo-oo-ooo

You were my toy but you could be the boy i adore
If you’d just let me know (bah-dah-dah)
