You're a Builder Upper Lyrics

Song Meaning
Verse 1
When you want to
You are able to make me feel that I'm Clark Gable
Then next minute you make me feel
I'm something from the zoo
First you warm up, then you're distant
Never knew a girl so inconsistent
I'm a big-shot at half past one
A so-and-so by two
Heaven forgive you for your sins
Keeping me on meaner than him
Verse 2
You're a builder-upper, a breaker-downer
A holder-outer, and I'm a giver-inner
Sad but true, I'm a sapper or two
Taking it from a big rover like you
Don't know where I'm after
I'm just a this-er, then I'm a that-er
A taker on the chin-er
My, my, my, what a weakie am I
To love you as I do
Verse 3
Just when I'm ready to sob
You hand me a throb
And everything is hunky-dory
And that's my story
Open your arms and I'm a stooge for your charms
You're a builder-upper, a breaker-downer
A holder-outer and I'm a giver-inner
Sad but true, I love it I do
Being broken by a builder-upper like you
Verse 4
Sad but true, I love it I do
Being broken by a builder-upper like you
