Build Me up Buttercup
The Foundations 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 anyone, 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 went to the door, I can't take any more
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 happy (hey, hey, hey)
I'll be home, I'll be beside the phone waiting for you
Ooh-ooh, ooh-ooh

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 anyone, darlin'
You know that I have from the start
So build me up (build me up) buttercup, don't break my heart

To you, I'm a toy, but I could be the boy you adore
If you'd just let me know (bah-dah-dah)
Although you're untrue, 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 happy (hey, hey, hey)
I'll be home, I'll be beside the phone waiting for you
Ooh-ooh, ooh-ooh

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 anyone, darlin'
You know that I have from the start
So build me up (build me up) buttercup, don't break my heart

I-I-I need you more than anyone, baby
You know that I have from the start
So build me up (build me up) buttercup

The Radionic Revival

@Jack Lowe according to who?

Like wheres your actual “scientific “ research and statistics on a very subjective viewpoint that by definition is literally just an opinion that you’re presenting object?

Cause this just comes off like a “sources: dude trust me”

This is kinda what irks me about a lot of music fans; they can be snobby about things that are supposed to be fun. You can’t just like something, no, the thing you like has to be OBJECTIVELY good and you have to have a strong factual reason for putting others things down instead. All over the most trivial of things.

It reminds me of how snobbish people can be when it comes to the shows they watch lmao



The Radionic Revival

@Jack Lowe kinda proving my point but ok.

And is it really being a “hipster douchebag” to just be like “i love this song; but theres orher great ones out there too”

Why do people get so arrogant and egotistical over the most trivial of things? Why does it always have to be a competition of whats the best? Why do you have to compliment something by putting something else down?

When people say stuff like that, all it does is attract weird dudes with sticks up their asses and create fights in comment sections of songs that are supposed to be fun—

I just love music is it wrong to encourage people to find more?

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
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
