Why do you build me up buttercup baby
Just to let me down and mess me around 
And then worst of all you never call baby
When you say you will 
But I love you still 
I need you more than anyone darling
You know that I have from the start 
So build me up, buttercup, 
Don't break my heart  Until after you've sung heart 

I'll be over at ten you told me
Time and again 
But you're late I wait around and then
I run to the door I can't take anymore 
It s not you you let me down again 
(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 
I'll be be-side the phone waiting for you


You are my toy but I could be the boy you adore 
If you just let me know
 Until you do I'm attracted to you all the more
Why do I need you so
Baby baby try to find
A little time and I'll make you mine
I'll be home I'll be beside the phone  Waiting for you
