Call Me, Maybe?

I don’t normally analyze bad—catchy songs. It’s because I end up downloading them and then listening to it over and over again. I would feel really guilty if I hated on it after listening to it so many times – I consider myself to be a true fan.

But this song…this song…I just can’t understand. The first time I heard it, I turned to my friend and asked her “Is this for real?” We were both a bit puzzled. If you haven’t heard it, click here. If you have, and you like this song – you may not want to see what I have below:

Call Me Maybe –  By Carly Rae Jepsen (as interpreted by me)

I threw a wish in the well,
Don’t ask me, I’ll never tell Don’t worry, I won’t.
I looked to you as it fell,
and now you’re in my way Wow, your wish came true really fast! I’m still waiting for my 16th birthday wish.

I trade my soul for a wish, A bit over-the-top but all right – your young.
pennies and dimes for a kiss Cheap-o.
I wasn’t looking for this,
but now you’re in my way But you just wished for him, so technically you were “looking for this”.

Your stare was holdin’, Ripped jeans, skin was showin’ Must be an Abercrombie model.
Hot night, wind was blowin’
Where you think you’re going, baby?

[Chorus] This is where it gets good.

Hey, I just met you,
and this is crazy,
but here’s my number,
so call me, maybe? “Maybe???” Way to be insecure about this guy and yourself.

It’s hard to look right,
at you baby, Hmmm…must be one of those Bollywood movie moments when you’re eyes meet and then both of you guys shy away.
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, Way to rub it in all the faces of the girls who don’t get chased.
but here’s my number,
so call me, maybe?

[Verse 2]

You took your time with the call, I guess this is where the “maybe” part comes in?
I took no time with the fall
You gave me nothing at all, And your waiting for his phone call because…
but still, you’re in my way

I beg, and borrow and steal You klepto.
At first sight and it’s real
I didn’t know I would feel it,
but it’s in my way

Your stare was holdin’, Ripped jeans, skin was showin’
Hot night, wind was blowin’
Where you think you’re going, baby? Probably back to where he came from!

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? Still not sure if he’s going to call, huh?

And all the other boys,
try to chase me, Their still chasing you?
but here’s my number,
so call me, maybe?

Before you came into my life
I missed you so bad Not quite sure how you can miss something that was never there.
I missed you so bad
I missed you so, so bad Hold on – you must have missed him really bad.

Before you came into my life
I missed you so bad
And you should know that
I missed you so, so bad Wow – you still miss him.

It’s hard to look right,
at you baby, Probably, since he ran away about 10 “Call Me, Maybes” before.
but here’s my number,
so call me, maybe?

Hey, I just met you,
and this is crazy, So craaaaazy. I can’t believe he still hasn’t called you!
but here’s my number,
so call me, maybe? Maybe he’ll text you!

And all the other boys,
try to chase me, They must be playing tag.
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 Could it not have hurt to look up the word “bad” in the thesaurus?

Before you came into my life
I missed you so bad
And you should know that
So call me, maybe? Yeah….He’s Just Not that into You.  

Did you listen to it? Funny huh? Maybe I should take back everything I just said above…yeah I can’t since my last comment pretty much summarizes the music video; and I came up with that before I even watched it – I’m just good like that!
