"Call Me Maybe" is a song by Canadian singer-songwriter Carly Rae Jepsen. 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, Czech Republic, Denmark, Finland, France, Hungary, Ireland, Luxembourg, New Zealand, Poland, Slovakia, Switzerland, the United Kingdom and the United States, while peaking inside the top three in Austria, Belgium (Flanders & Wallonia), Germany, Israel, Japan, Netherlands, Norway, and Sweden.[1]

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.[1]

Cimorelli covered the song and uploaded the video to YouTube on March 24, 2012. It was recorded at their home on Logic Pro, filmed with a Canon Vixia, and edited in Final Cut Express. Lisa did the vocal arranging and video editing, and Christina did the choreography.[2]

Lyrics

Christina:
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.
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

Christina and Lauren with background vocals by Cimorelli:
Your stare was holdin'
Ripped jeans, skin was showin'
Hot night, wind was blowin'
Where you think you're going, baby?

Lauren with background vocals by Cimorelli:
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?

Amy with background vocals by Lauren:
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
Had foresight 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?

Katherine with background vocals by Cimorelli:
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?

Dani with background vocals by Cimorelli:
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
And you should know, know that

Cimorelli:
Call me, baby

Lisa:
It's hard to look right at you, baby
But here's my number
Lisa and Lauren:
So call me, maybe?

Lisa with background vocals by Cimorelli:
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?
