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

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

This magic moment, so different and so new, was like any other - by the look in your eyes. Sweeter than wine softer than the summer night - every thing I want I had while I hold you tight. Forever till the end of time.

Maybe it's an urban legend but I recall that Build Me Up Buttercup started out as an advertising tag line for a British bra maker. Nothing serious but it's a nice diversion. Reminds me of a collapsing cup I experienced with a long forgotten girl after a middle school dance.
