Intro:
   C E F G
   C E7 F G
 
Chorus:
           C                         E7
Why do you build me up -build me up- Buttercup, baby 
        F                             G
Just to let me down -let me down- and mess me around 
         C                           E7
And then worst of all -worst of all- you never call, baby 
         F                               G
When you say you will -say you will- but I love you still 
       C                          C7
I need you -I need you- more than anyone, darlin' 
    F                         Fm
You know that I have from the start 
   C           G
So build me up Buttercup, 
               F   C G C
Don't break my heart 
 
Verse:
          C       G                Bb       F
"I'll be over at ten," you told me time and again 
             C          F
But you're late, I wait around and then 
  C           G             Bb       F
I went to the door, I can't take any more 
         C               F
It's not you, you let me down again
 
Pre-Chorus:
 F    C    Dm
-Hey, hey, hey!- Baby, baby, try to find 
 G    Fm   Em
-Hey, hey, hey!- a little time and I'll make you mine 
 F
I'll be home 
        D7                             G
I'll be beside the phone waiting for you 
 G          G
Ooo-oo-ooo, ooo-oo-ooo 
 
Chorus:
           C                         E7
Why do you build me up -build me up- Buttercup, baby 
        F                             G
Just to let me down -let me down- and mess me around 
         C                           E7
And then worst of all -worst of all- you never call, baby 
         F                               G
When you say you will -say you will- but I love you still 
       C                          C7
I need you -I need you- more than anyone, darlin'
           F                  Fm
You know that I have from the start 
   C                         G
So build me up -build me up- Buttercup, 
               F    C G C
Don't break my heart 
 
Verse:
   C         G         Bb           F
To you I'm a toy but I could be the boy you 
 C                    F
Adore, if you'd just let me know 
   C            G
Although you're untrue, 
    Bb           F           C
I'm attracted to you all the more 
         F
Why do I need you so 
 
Pre-Chorus:
 F    C    Dm
-Hey, hey, hey!- Baby, baby, try to find 
 G    Fm   Em
-Hey, hey, hey!- a little time and I'll make you mine 
 F
I'll be home 
        D7                             G
I'll be beside the phone waiting for you 
 G          G
Ooo-oo-ooo, ooo-oo-ooo 
 
Chorus:
           C                         E7
Why do you build me up -build me up- Buttercup, baby

hi

hi im jeff uwu

for the verses, “and mess me around” and, “but I love you still” instead of playing G i usually play G7. personally i think they both sound good with the song but i feel G7 sounds better.

hallo

i tried that, yeah G7 does sound better

ukudude

OMG G7 SOUNDS GREAT WITH IT

oOfOoFoOfOoF

i do the same thing and it sounds pretty good

Olive

Allyrora77

Instead of Dm at “I’ll be beside the phone”, (2-0-2-0) (dunno chord name) sounds better :)

Jean

Em7 :)

Rob

It’s the alternative D7. See Natalie’s comment above.

emu child

well there’ s not a huge difference if you just play an F with your ring finger on the 3rd fret bottom string, thats how i play it

Kenz

2-0-1-3 does sound a bit brighter i’d say but it sounds nice :)
