Intro - x2 -: G B7 C D

           G                         B7
Why do you build me up - build me up - Buttercup, baby 
        C                             D
Just to let me down - let me down - and mess me around 
         G                           B7
And then worst of all - worst of all - you never call, baby 
         C                               D
When you say you will - say you will - but I love you still 


       G                          G7
I need you - I need you - more than anyone, darlin' 
    C                         Cm
You know that I have from the start 
   G           D
So build me up Buttercup, 
               C     G
Don't break my heart 


          G       D                F       C                          
"I'll be over at ten," you told me time and again 
             G          C
But you're late, I wait around and then 
  G           D             F       C             
I went to the door, I can't take any more 
         G               C
It's not you, you let me down again


 C    G    Am        
- Hey, hey, hey! - Baby, baby, try to find 
 D    Cm   Bm                         
- Hey, hey, hey! - a little time and I'll make you mine 
 C                 
I'll be home 
        Am                             D
I'll be beside the phone waiting for you 
 D          D
Ooo-oo-ooo, ooo-oo-ooo 


           G                         B7
Why do you build me up - build me up - Buttercup, baby 
        C                             D
Just to let me down - let me down - and mess me around 
         G                           B7
And then worst of all - worst of all - you never call, baby 
         C                               D
When you say you will - say you will - but I love you still 
       G                          G7
I need you - I need you - more than anyone, darlin'
           C                  Cm
You know that I have from the start 
   G                         D
So build me up - build me up - Buttercup, 
               C    G
Don't break my heart 


   G         D         F           C          
To you I'm a toy but I could be the boy you 
 G                    C
Adore, if you'd just let me know 
   G            D 
Although you're untrue, 
    F           C           G
I'm attracted to you all the more 
         C
Why do I need you so 
           
     
 C    G    Am        
- Hey, hey, hey! - Baby, baby, try to find 
 D    Cm   Bm                         
- Hey, hey, hey! - a little time and I'll make you mine 
 C                 
I'll be home 
        Am                             D
I'll be beside the phone waiting for you 
 D          D
Ooo-oo-ooo, ooo-oo-ooo

  1. twentyoneflightlessbirds

    i think that the ukulele teachers version is better its on youtube

  2. shrimpinabag

    when any cover tyler sings becomes a tøp song

  3. brendonsbagels

    I’M HERE FOR MY EGGO BOI TYLER

  4. Unicornofthec

    same

  5. Great chords ❤

  6. Annika Dawn

    Yay I’m not the only one! I came here to play this because Tyler Joseph sings it in the background of the behind the scenes video for “House of Gold” and I fell in love with it!

  7. tylerrjoseph

    came because Tyler’s version on the ukulele is amazing

  8. ijustmadeanaccount

    Tyler Joseph blessed me with this song on the ukulele and I’m slowly ruining it by attempting to play and sing. oops.

  9. I love this song

  10. 21paphoonies

    Tyler Joseph singing this with his ukulele is just.. ugh so beautiful….

  11. -5 is p easy n v nice!!!!

  12. -5 sounds much better!! And easier, to me at least

  13. brittabird6

    Tyler Joseph singing this is literal perfection

  14. TraynorOnline

    The Bb on the last line sounds much better as an Am, like this:

    F Am G C
    Don’t break my heart

  15. I reckon D7 instead of Dm- cheers!

  16. cottoncandygirl

    gosh i love this song

  17. wanderlust

    Nice chord.
    I would just add an A7 after Em at “I’ll make you happy”
    Also Dm should be D7 at “I’ll be beside the phone…”

  18. ukulele lover

    There are a few weird chords in here but overall it’s great! But the Dm in the second half of the prechorus should be a D. And any Bb sounds really weird, so I just play F again in its place.

    • reenee.ann

      for the Dm in the second half of the prechorus i like to play a Am6, but thats all preference :) i like the funky sound it gives :)

  19. RAWR… It’s the same as hers. If it still sounds wrong when you play it, try tuning your guitar.

  20. this is weird . . Julia Nune’s version is better . .
