Build me up buttercup  Foundations

Why do you      build me up     [C]buttercup baby
just to         let me d[F]own and         mess me around
and then        worst of[C] all you        never call baby
when you        say you [F]will    But     I love you still
I need  you more than   [C]anyone darling
You     know tha[F]t I have from the       start
So      build me[C] up,    buttercup,
don t break my heart
(syncopated - don t play the F
until after you ve sung heart )
Verse I
I ll be         over at [C]        ten you told me
        [Bb]time and a-     gain
But you re      late I wait a-  [C]round and then
I       [C]run to the door [G]I can t take anymore
It s not[C] you    you let me      [F]down again
(He[F]y Hey[C] Hey)[D] Baby baby         [G]try to find
(He[G]y Hey[A] Hey)[Em] A little time and I ll make you mine
(He[A]y Hey[G] Hey[F]) I ll be home
I ll be be-side the phone waitin[G]g for you
(3 measures G)
Verse II
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 (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)
