The Foundations', "Build Me Up, Buttercup"
The Nonsensical Lyrics:
You were my toy but I could be the boy you adore
Why They're Nonsensical:
This song is about a girl named Buttercup who takes her man for granted, so how does this line fit in to the song? Shouldn't it be 'I am your toy?' There's nothing else in the song that talks about the guy mistreating Buttercup, it's all about her actions and how he still loves her. I've puzzled over this one for years!
