Buttercup-The Foundations song, In Princeton

We were out taking a walk in Princeton and heard some twenty-something girls belting out the lyrics to “Build Me Up Buttercup” by The Foundations. I’m happy to hear that generations later the music lives on in the hearts of many.

Build Me Up Buttercup 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 went 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
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 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

Comments, Please

Hello world,

It’s Friday and a beautiful spring day is beginning.

A word on comments. I welcome your comments. To those who have commented, “I thank you, as my maternal grandmother would have said.
I’d love to meet you, where you’re from. Perhaps tell me what you’re looking for. I have many more photos on each subject that I have posted. If there’s a subject you like, perhaps I’ll upload some more photos.

I see that among some of the most often clicks to my site are the Stone Quarry in Vermont, Antonio de Curtis, “Toto”- the famous comedian in Italy, a 1920’s period men’s suit,” under the post “Tales of Wildcat”, and Pennylvania’s Chocolate World in Hershey, tour guide inside trolley, Hershey’s trolley at Hershey, Pa. Confetti parade ( I think the photo was of the Philly Mummer’s that you happened upon). Talerine beef recipe and Lithuainian dessert recipe. A few times someone has done a search on ant hill How-to’s refers to a photo that I took at the Philly Mummers in year 2008.

This photo of the view of the Delaware river from the upstairs sitting room is from the same location as my photo in a previous post. The previous post is located in “Back in Time, Pennsbury Manor in Morrisville, Pa.” In the photo, I am standing beside two rows of trees behing the Manor.

World Water Day is March 22, 2009

The United Nations calculate that some 21,000 children will die through lack of water or famine due to lack of rain.

We celebrate water in our lives today.

Today, my husband ventured out for a walk at Carnegie Lake in Princeton, New Jersey. There were three fishermen quietly engaing in their sport and two geese walking about along with me enjoying the sounds of nature and capturing some on film and video.

Photos and video will be posted later.

Is it First Day Of Spring

Maine Lighthouse

Maine Lighthouse

We visited Maine in the summer of 2007 and drove to this point to see this lighthouse. It can be reached by boat.

Ai Miei amici Italiani:
Abbiamo visitato Maine en Estate 2006. Il faro puo essere raggiunto en barca.
