Dodie Clark - Build Me Up Buttercup Chords

[Chorus] 
          C               E7 
Why do you build me up, buttercup, baby 
 F                   G7 
Just to let me down… and mess me around? 
 C                     E7 
And then worst of all, you never call baby 
 F                     G7 
When you say you will, but I love you still 
 C                     C7 
I need you… more than anyone, darling 
    F                          Fm 
You know that I have from the start 
 C              G                         F       C * 
So build me up, Buttercup, don’t break my heart 
  
[Verse] 
          C      G          Bb           F 
“I’ll be over at ten”, you tell me time and again 
           C                 Dm 
But you’re late, I’m waiting round and then 
 C           G             Bb         F 
I go to the door, I can’t take it anymore 
          C               G7 
It’s not you, you let me down again 
  
[Pre-Chorus] 
  G7         Dm 
Baby, baby - try to find 
Em                  A7 
A little time, and I’ll make you happy 
Dm             D7                        G 
I’ll be home, I’ll be beside the phone, waiting for you 
G 
Ooo-oo-oo-ooo Ooo-oo-oo-ooo 
  
[Chorus] 
           C            E7 
Why do you build me up, buttercup, baby 
 F                   G7 
Just to let me down… and mess me around? 
 C                     E7 
And then worst of all, you never call baby 
 F                     G7 
When you say you will, but I love you still 
 C                     C7 
I need you… more than anyone, darling 
    F                          Fm 
You know that I have from the start 
 C              G                         F       C * 
So build me up, Buttercup, don’t break my heart 
  
[Verse] 
     C      G          Bb           F 
To you I’m a toy, but I could be the boy 
           C                Dm 
You adore, if you’d just let me know 
 C           G             Bb         F 
Although you’re untrue, I’m attracted to you 
          C               G7 
All the more… Why do I need you so? 
  
[Pre-Chorus] 
  G7         Dm 
Baby, baby - try to find 
Em                  A7 
A little time, and I’ll make you happy 
Dm             D7                        G 
I’ll be home, I’ll be beside the phone, waiting for you 
G 
Ooo-oo-oo-ooo Ooo-oo-oo-ooo 
  
[Chorus] 
           C            E7 
Why do you build me up, buttercup, baby 
 F                   G7 
Just to let me down… and mess me around? 
 C                     E7 
And then worst of all, you never call baby 
 F                     G7 
When you say you will, but I love you still 
 C                     C7 
I need you… more than anyone, darling 
    F *                        Fm * 
You know that I have from the start 
 C*             G* 
So build me up, Buttercup 
               F     Fm 
don’t break my heart 
                     C * 
don’t break my heart
