Build Me Up Buttercup

Lyrics

Why do you build me up (build me up) Buttercup, baby
Just to let me down (let me down) and mess me around
And then worst of all (worst of all) you never call, baby
When you say you will (say you will) but I love you still
full lyrics

When you say you will (say you will) but I love you still

speaking of detention (even if I can't seem to spell that word too well)...I once had a detention teacher who was so bad, she wasn't just happy putting me on the rack, pulling my arms and legs out of joint, she had to play an album of 'Tiny Tim's Greatest Hits' while I was laying there, suffering... Tip-Toe Through The Tulips you witch...

Dont read this. You will be kissed on the nearest possible friday by the love of your life. Tomorrow will be the best day of your life. Don't stop this is freaky! But if you read and ignore it you will get bad luck. Put this on 15 songs in 143 minutes when you are done press the space bar and your crushes name will appear in big letters on the screen.

I've always had a special spot for this song. a lot of people are unfamiliar with The foundations. They are usually misidentifie d as the Four Tops or The Temptations. Build Me up Buttercup
