Release information
Release Date: 1975
writer: Mike d’Abo, Tony Macaulay
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
