Save Ferris - Build Me Up Buttercup Lyrics




Why do you build me up (build me up) buttercup, baby
Just to let me down (let me down)and mess me around
And then worst of all (worst of all) you never call, baby
When you say you will (say you will) but I love you still
I need you (I need you) more than anything, darlin'
You know that I have from the start
So build me up (build me up) buttercup, don't break my heart

"I'll be over at ten", you told me time and again
But you're late, I wait around and then (bah-dah-dah)
I run to the door, I can't take any more
It's not you, you let me down again

(hey, hey, hey!) baby, baby,I try to find
(hey, hey, hey!) a little time, and I'll make you mine
(hey, hey, hey!) I'll be home
Waiting by the phone for you
Ooo-oo-ooo, ooo-oo-ooo

Why do you build me up (build me up) buttercup, baby
Just to let me down (let me down) and mess me around
And then worst of all (worst of all) you never call, baby
When you say you will (say you will) but I love you still
I need you (I need you) more than anything, darling
You know that I have from the start
So build me up (build me up) buttercup, don't break my heart

You were a toy but you could be the boy I adore
If you'd just let me go (bah-dah-dah)
Although you're untrue, I'm attracted to you more and more
What more can I say

(hey, hey, hey!) baby, baby,I try to find
(hey, hey, hey!) a little time and I'll make you happy
(hey, hey, hey!) I'm alone
Waiting by the phone for you
Ooo-oo-ooo, ooo-oo-ooo

Why do you build me up (build me up) buttercup, baby
Just to let me down (let me down) and mess me around
And then worst of all (worst of all) you never call, baby
When you say you will (say you will) but I love you still
I need you (I need you) more than anything, darling
You know that I have from the start
So build me up (build me up) buttercup, don't break my

Why do you build me up (build me up) buttercup, baby
Just to let me down (let me down) and mess me around
And then worst of all (worst of all) you never call, baby
When you say you will (say you will) I need you still
I need you (I need you) more than anything, darling
You know that I have from the start
So build me up (build me up) buttercup, don't break my heart

  1. Bazinga Burger

    People should do covers of this badass version! This is one of the only songs where the cover is better than the original.

    Rafael Fiol

    She sounds like Monique Powell from Save Ferris (who did an equally outstanding ska cover of "Come On Eileen").

    Bazinga Burger

    Rafael Fiol I just checked that song out. You know when you find a new song and you put it on repeat a bunch of times? That’s me right now. It rocks 🤘

    LednacekZ

    no it isnt. the speeding up made the song loose a big chunk of its appeal

    Tommy Mudd

    Right along with You Just Keep Me Hangin On by Vanilla Fudge

  2. Dope Ghost

    This is heavenly.
