Intro:
   F A Bb C
   F A7 Bb C
 
Chorus:
           F                         A7
Why do you build me up -build me up- Buttercup, baby 
        Bb                             C
Just to let me down -let me down- and mess me around 
         F                           A7
And then worst of all -worst of all- you never call, baby 
         Bb                               C
When you say you will -say you will- but I love you still 
       F                          F7
I need you -I need you- more than anyone, darlin' 
    Bb                         Bbm
You know that I have from the start 
   F           C
So build me up Buttercup, 
               Bb   F C F
Don't break my heart 
 
Verse:
          F       C                Eb       Bb
"I'll be over at ten," you told me time and again 
             F          Bb
But you're late, I wait around and then 
  F           C             Eb       Bb
I went to the door, I can't take any more 
         F               Bb
It's not you, you let me down again
 
Pre-Chorus:
 Bb    F    Gm
-Hey, hey, hey!- Baby, baby, try to find 
 C    Bbm   Am
-Hey, hey, hey!- a little time and I'll make you mine 
 Bb
I'll be home 
        G7                             C
I'll be beside the phone waiting for you 
 C          C
Ooo-oo-ooo, ooo-oo-ooo 
 
Chorus:
           F                         A7
Why do you build me up -build me up- Buttercup, baby 
        Bb                             C
Just to let me down -let me down- and mess me around 
         F                           A7
And then worst of all -worst of all- you never call, baby 
         Bb                               C
When you say you will -say you will- but I love you still 
       F                          F7
I need you -I need you- more than anyone, darlin'
           Bb                  Bbm
You know that I have from the start 
   F                         C
So build me up -build me up- Buttercup, 
               Bb    F C F
Don't break my heart 
 
Verse:
   F         C         Eb           Bb
To you I'm a toy but I could be the boy you 
 F                    Bb
Adore, if you'd just let me know 
   F            C
Although you're untrue, 
    Eb           Bb           F
I'm attracted to you all the more 
         Bb
Why do I need you so 
 
Pre-Chorus:
 Bb    F    Gm
-Hey, hey, hey!- Baby, baby, try to find 
 C    Bbm   Am
-Hey, hey, hey!- a little time and I'll make you mine 
 Bb
I'll be home 
        G7                             C
I'll be beside the phone waiting for you 
 C          C
Ooo-oo-ooo, ooo-oo-ooo 
 
Chorus:
           F                         A7
Why do you build me up -build me up- Buttercup, baby 
        Bb                             C
Just to let me down -let me down- and mess me around 
         F                           A7
And then worst of all -worst of all- you never call, baby 
         Bb                               C

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

dduudu

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 :)
