Build Me Up Buttercup album at
The Foundations', "Build Me Up, Buttercup"
The Lyrics:
Why do you build me up, Buttercup, baby,
Just to let me down and mess me around,
And then worst of all,
You never call, baby, when you say will you will.
(also) "I'll be over at ten," you tell me time and again,
But you're late; I wait around and then
I run to the door; I can't take any more.
It's not you; you've let me down again.
Very lively music, but cold-hearted Buttercup is playing the poor guy for a fool.
