You're a Builder Upper (from Life Begins at 8:40)

You're a Builder Upper (from Life Begins at 8:40)

Julie Andrews

When you want to
You are able to make me feel that Iâ??m Clark Gable
Then next minute you make me feel
Iâ??m something from the zoo
First you warm up, then youâ??re distant
Never knew a girl so inconsistent
Iâ??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

Youâ??re a builder-upper, a breaker-downer
A holder-outer, and Iâ??m a giver-inner
Sad but true, Iâ??m a sapper or two
Taking it from a big rover like you
Donâ??t know where Iâ??m atter
Iâ??m just a this-er, then Iâ??m a that-er
A taker on the chin-er
My, my, my, what a weakie am I
To love you as I do

Just when Iâ??m ready to sob
You hand me a throb
And everything is hunky-dory
And thatâ??s my story
Open your arms and Iâ??m a stooge for your charms
Youâ??re a builder-upper, a breaker-downer
A holder-outer and Iâ??m a giver-inner
Sad but true, I love it I do
Being broken by a builder-upper like you

Sad but true, I love it I do
Being broken by a builder-upper like you
