  • Build Me Up Buttercup Artist: The Foundations Album: Build Me Up Buttercup Description Not Provided 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
    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
    I run to the door, I can't take any more
    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
    Ooo-oo-ooo, ooo-oo-ooo


    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


    (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
    Ooo-oo-ooo, ooo-oo-ooo


    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-oo-oo more than anyone, baby
    You know that I have from the start
    So build me up (build me up)
    Buttercup, don't break my heart Video

  • Built To Last Artist: Heartland Album: I Loved Her First Description Not Provided Lyrics I made a trip back to my hometown last week
    For my grandparents fifty year anniversry
    It was black leather wingtips, and big bouffant hair
    Your typical senior affair


    They were cuttin the rug to a Glen Miller tune
    When someone stood up and tapped a glass with a spoon
    It was old Eddie Vickers granddaddys best man
    And his very best friend to this day
    And his eyes grew misty as he raised his champagne


    He said, Heres to the makers of things built to last
    Like church bells and bridges, and baseball on grass
    Like Ferguson tractors and Lucchese boots
    My daddys old tools I still use


    The pledge of allegiance, the stars and the stripes,
    The words in the Bible, the sun in the sky
    And heres to the twinkle in old married eyes
    Still there after fifty years past
    Heres to the makers of things built to last"


    We live in a world now of plastic and glue
    Disposable honor, replaceable truth
    And if a pot breaks, why fix it? Man, whats the use?
    It costs less to buy it brand new


    Oh but lately Ive looked in the eyes of my wife
    And I see there what matters the most in this life
    And I have decided Im takin a stand
    To stay on that fifty year plan
    Inspired by the words of a very wise man


    He said, Heres to the makers of things built to last
    Like church bells and bridges, and baseball on grass
    Like Ferguson tractors and Lucchese boots
    My daddys old tools I still use


    The pledge of allegiance, the stars and the stripes,
    The words in the Bible, the sun in the sky
    And heres to the twinkle in old married eyes
    Still there after fifty years past
    Heres to the makers of things built to last"
    Heres to the makers of things built to last

  • Carried Away Artist: George Strait Album: Blue Clear Sky Description Not Provided Lyrics I dont take my whiskey to extremes
    Dont believe in chasin crazy dreams
    My feet are planted firmly on the ground
    But darlin when you come around


    [chorus]
    I get carried away by the look by the light in your eyes
    Before I even realize the ride Im on
    Baby Im long gone
    I get carried away nothin matters but bein with you
    Like a feather flyin high up in the sky on a windy day
    I get carried away


    It might seem like an ordinary night
    Same ol stars same ol moon up high
    But when I see you standin at your door
    Nothins ordinary anymore
