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

This song Build Me UP Butter Cup entered Billboard's Top !00 Singles Chart on Januray 4, 1969 and peaked at #3 and stayed on the charts for only 15 weeks. Released on UNI label #55101... the flip side of the single was a song called... New Direction.Th e y only had five charted songs from 1967 to 1969.

Don't read this because it actually works.you will be kissed by the love of your life on the nearest Friday. Tomorrow will be the best day of your life.However if you don't post this you will be injured (but you won't die) in two days.Now you started this so don't stop.Post this on at least five songs in the next 143 minutes.When you're done press f6 and your lovers name will appear on the screen in big letters.
