Build Me Up Buttercup

Commercials. What do you think of them? I don’t know anyone who actually likes them. 😉

Yet, if I have to watch them, I appreciate commercials that make me laugh or smile. 🙂

I recently was watching a silly commercial that used The Foundations’ “Build Me Up Buttercup.” If you are not familiar with the song, here it is:

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
(Bah-dah-dah)
I run 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-oo-ooh
(Ooh-oo-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
To you I’m a 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-oo-ooh
(Ooh-oo-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 need you 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

This song ALWAYS makes me smile when I hear it. 🙂

When I was a student at UW-Madison, I attended some of the Wisconsin Badger football games. Whenever this song played in the stadium, the crowd went WILD! I had so much fun dancing with my friends to this song in the stands. 🙂

This song also reminds me of weddings. I LOVE wedding receptions because I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE to dance! 😀 Whenever, this song is played at weddings, it is a BLAST to dance to. ❤

As I write this blog post and listen to this song, I am swaying in my chair. 😉

Although I don’t like commercials, I appreciate that a commercial used this song and put a smile on my face! ❤

Can you think of any commercials that you recently watched that improved your mood?

How did listening to this song just now make you feel? I hope you have a smile on your face. 🙂

Wishing you well! ❤
