BUILD ME UP BUTTERCUP Foundations
[C]C [Em]Em [F]F [G]G G (organ and piano)
Why do you [C]build me up, [Em]buttercup baby
just to [F]let me down, [G]and mess me around?
And then [C]worst of all, [Em]you never call baby
when you [F]say you will. [G]But I love you still.
I need [C]you more than [Bb]anyone darling.
You [F]know that I have from the [D]start.
So [C]build me up, [G]buttercup, don't break my heart.
[F](s[Em]ync[D]op[C]ate[G]d - don't play the F until after you've sung "heart" )
I'll be [C]over at [G]ten you told me [Bb]time and a-[F]gain,
But you're [C]late. I wait a-[F]round and then,
[C]I run to the [G]door I can't [Bb]take any[F]more,
It's not [C]you. You let me [F]down again.
([F]Hey [C]Hey [D]Hey) Baby baby [G]try to find,
([G]Hey [A]Hey [Em]Hey) A little time and [A]I'll make you mine.
([A]Hey [G]Hey [F]Hey) I'll be home,
I'll be be-[D]side the phone waiting for [G]you.
(3 measures G)
Oooh Oooh, Oooh Oooh
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.
(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 beside the phone,
waiting for you.
(3 measures on G)
A terrific song with heartbreaking lyrics.
This is my very first posting of a tab,
so be merciful (especially about the lyrics)
