Build Me Up, Buttercup

周末在咖啡馆听到这首 The Foundations 的经典作品,忽然唤起了很多回忆,当时就赶紧把歌放进歌单。昨天在健身房骑车的时候又随机播放到这首歌,我仔细看了歌词,才发现这么多年我一直被骗了。或许是因为第一次听到的版本就是很欢快的版本,我一直误以为这首歌是一首快乐的歌。没想到歌词其实是在抱怨自己的宝贝不回电话很渣。笑。

重温了一下第一次看的版本,那个还可以自由上 YouTube 的时代,我关注的 cover 歌手为她的朋友创作的这个友情大过天的温馨版本,还是忍不住嘴角上扬。太可爱了!


附苦情歌词:

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

I need you (I need you) more than anyone, darlin'

You know that I have from the start

So build me up (build me up) buttercup, don't break my heart

"I'll be over at ten, " you told me time and again

But you're late, I wait around and then (bah dah dah)

I went to the door, I can't take any more

It's not you, you let me down again

baby, baby, try to find

(Hey, hey, hey) a little time and I'll make you mine

(Hey, hey, hey) I'll be home

I'll be beside the phone waiting for you

Ooh ooh ooh, ooh ooh ooh

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

I need you (I need you) more than anyone, darlin'

You know that I have from the start

So build me up (build me up) buttercup, don't break my heart

You were my toy but I could be the boy you adore

If you'd just let me know (bah dah dah)

Although you're untrue, I'm attracted to you all the more

Why do I need you so?

baby, baby, try to find

(Hey, hey, hey) a little time and I'll make you mine

(Hey, hey, hey) I'll be home

I'll be beside the phone waiting for you

Ooh ooh ooh, ooh ooh ooh

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

I need you (I need you) more than anyone, darlin'

You know that I have from the start

So build me up (build me up) buttercup, don't break my heart

I, I, I need you more than anyone, baby

You know that I have from the start

So build me up (build me up) buttercup
