Carly Rae Jepsen – Call Me Maybe Lyrics

I threw a wish in the well,
Don’t ask me, I’ll never tell
I looked to you as it fell,
And now you’re in my way

carly-rae-jepsen-call-me-maybe-music-video-lyrics,psy,gangnam-style

I’d trade my soul for a wish,
Pennies and dimes for a kiss
I wasn’t looking for this,
But now you’re in my way

Your stare was holdin’,
Ripped jeans, skin was showin’
Hot night, wind was blowin’
Where you think you’re going, baby?

Hey, I just met you,
And this is crazy,
But here’s my number,
So call me, maybe?

It’s hard to look right,
At you baby,
But here’s my number,
So call me, maybe?

Hey, I just met you,
And this is crazy,
But here’s my number,
So call me, maybe?

And all the other boys,
Try to chase me,
But here’s my number,
So call me, maybe?

You took your time with the call,
I took no time with the fall
You gave me nothing at all,
But still, you’re in my way

I beg, and borrow and steal
Have foresight and it’s real
I didn’t know I would feel it,
But it’s in my way

Hey, I just met you,
And this is crazy,
But here’s my number,

Hey, I just met you,
And this is crazy,
But here’s my number,
So call me, maybe?

And all the other boys,
Try to chase me,
But here’s my number,
So call me, maybe?

Before you came into my life
I missed you so bad
I missed you so bad
I missed you so, so bad

Before you came into my life
I missed you so bad
And you should know that
I missed you so, so bad

It’s hard to look right,
At you baby,
But here’s my number,
So call me, maybe?

Hey, I just met you,
And this is crazy,
But here’s my number,
So call me, maybe?

And all the other boys,
Try to chase me,
But here’s my number,
So call me, maybe?

Before you came into my life
I missed you so bad
I missed you so bad
I missed you so, so bad

Before you came into my life
I missed you so bad
And you should know that

So call me, maybe?

About Call Me Maybe

“Call Me Maybe” is a song recorded by Canadian singer-songwriter Carly Rae Jepsen for her EP Curiosity (2012). The song was written by Jepsen and Tavish Crowe as a folk song, but its genre was modified to pop following the production by Josh Ramsay. It was released as the lead single from the EP on September 20, 2011, through 604 Records. After Canadian pop singer Justin Bieber and his girlfriend actress/singer Selena Gomez tweeted about the song, it gained international attention. Jepsen was signed to Schoolboy Records, releasing her single in the United States through the label.

Musically, “Call Me Maybe” is an upbeat teen pop track that draws influences from dance-pop and disco. Lyrically, the track alludes to the inconvenience that a love at first sight brings to a girl who hopes for a call back from a crush.
The song received generally positive reviews from contemporary critics, who praised its composition and clever lyrical content. “Call Me Maybe” has attained commercial success worldwide, reaching number one in Australia, Costa Rica, Czech Republic, Denmark, Finland, France, Hungary, Ireland, Italy, Luxembourg, New Zealand, Poland, Slovakia, Switzerland, the United Kingdom and the United States, while peaking inside the top three in Austria, Belgium (Flanders & Wallonia), Estonia, Germany, Israel, Netherlands, Norway, and Sweden. After reaching the top position in Canada, Jepsen became only the fifth Canadian artist to do so in her home country since 2007. In the United States, the track reached number one on the Billboard Hot 100 and the Pop Songs chart.

The song is the first number one by a Canadian female artist on the Billboard Hot 100 chart since 2007’s “Girlfriend” by Avril Lavigne. With worldwide sales of over 7.5 million copies it is the second best selling single of 2012 only behind Gotye’s “Somebody That I Used to Know” which sold over 8.97 million copies, making “Call Me Maybe” one of the best-selling digital singles of all time.

An accompanying music video was directed by Ben Knechtel. In it, Jepsen seeks the attention of an attractive boy next door who is revealed at the close of the story to be attracted to a male band member. As part of promotion for the song, the singer has performed the track on The Ellen DeGeneres Show, where she made her US television debut, and at the 2012 Billboard Music Awards.

“Call Me Maybe” has already been covered by several artists, including Katy Perry,[5] Kelly Clarkson, Dan Deacon, Fun, Big Time Rush, The Chipettes, R5, Lil’ Wayne, Enter Shikari, Ben Howard, Nickelback, Cody Simpson and parodied by Cookie Monster and some of the news staff of National Public Radio.
