  • I threw a wish in the well
    Don't ask me I'll never tell
    I looked at you as it fell
    And now you're in my way
    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 holding
    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
    At first sight and it's real
    I didn't know I would feel it
    But it's in my way

    Your stare was holding
    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

    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 Writer/s: Carly Rae Jepsen, Joshua Keeler Ramsay, Tavish Joseph Crowe

  • Peter from Coventry, United KingdomA very nice song.
  • Brittney from Baltimore,md, Costa RicaShe is attractive smart (probably) and her songs sound like she is a down to earth kind of person. Her songs are the type of songs I can listen to all day long and non-stop.
  • Camille from Toronto, OhOkay, I love it. The best kind of summer bubblegum pop music. I'd never heard it, but heard OF it. Then today, June 9, 2012, an internet story catches my attention about how Carly Rae went on Jimmy Fallon's show two nights ago and he and his house band The Roots performed this song with her using only elementary classroom instruments (triangle, kazoo, xylophone, ect). Listened to the clip, what a great song. You gotta love it. Currently No. 1 on iTunes (like I said, June, 9, 2012).

    Also this month the Miss Universe Pagent had their contestants lip synch to this tune.
