Intro - x2 -: C E7 F G

           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
Don't break my heart 


          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


 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 
        Dm                             G
I'll be beside the phone waiting for you 
 G          G
Ooo-oo-ooo, ooo-oo-ooo 


           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
Don't break my heart 


   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 
           
     
 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 
        Dm                             G
I'll be beside the phone waiting for you 
 G          G
Ooo-oo-ooo, ooo-oo-ooo 


           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    Bb G C
Don't break my heart

(dm)baby baby, (G)try to find. (Em)A little time and (A7)I”ll make you mine. (F)I’ll be home. i’ll be (D7)beside the phone waiting for (G)you.
Ooo-oo-ooo, ooo-oo-ooo

This how I play the pre-chorus and i think it sounds much better

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

Is there an easier way to do Fm? Can you bar the first fret?

Sometimes when jumping from the F to the Fm, I won’t switch fingers 1 & 2 and will hit the B with 4.
