[Chorus]
          C               E7
Why do you build me up, buttercup, baby
 F                   G7
Just to let me down… and mess me around?
 C                     E7
And then worst of all, you never call baby
 F                     G7
When you say you will, but I love you still
 C                     C7
I need you… more than anyone, darling
    F                          Fm
You know that I have from the start
 C              G                         F       C G
So build me up, Buttercup, don’t break my heart
 
[Verse]
          C      G          Bb           F
“I’ll be over at ten”, you tell me time and again
           C                 F
But you’re late, I’m waiting round and then
 C           G             Bb         F
I go to the door, I can’t take it anymore
          C               F
It’s not you, you let me down again
 
G7       Dm
Hey hey hey
 
[Pre-Chorus]
  Dm         G
Baby, baby - try to find
Em                  A7
A little time, and I’ll make you happy
Dm             D7                       
I’ll be home, I’ll be beside the phone, 
 G
waiting for you
G              G7
Ooo-oo-oo-ooo Ooo-oo-oo-ooo

[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               F
All the more… Why do I need you so?
