Build Me Up, Buttercup - The Foundations

Other postings of this song have been slightly incorrect.  
I doubt this version is spot-on but it's slightly better than the others.

Why do you build me up, Buttercup, baby
Just to let me down, and mess me around.
And then worst of all, you never call, baby,
When you say you will, but I love you still
I need you, more than anyone darling,
You know that I have from the start.
So 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,
I run to the door I can't take anymore,
It's not you, you let me down again.
(Hey, hey, hey) 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.

Verse 2
You are me toy but I could be th boy you adore,
If you just let me know.
Until you do I'm attracted to you all the more,
Why do I need you so.
