I threw a wish in the well… Don’t ask me… I’ll never tell

I know I know… The prompt said a song I love… But this song isn’t necessarily my theme song of the week… or month… in fact it gets stuck in my head and wraps itself in there until everything I am doing (Walking, talking, dancing, doing dishes… washing in the shower ha!) gets done in rhythm. 

Smallest child sings it everywhere… We sing it together at the top of our lungs while grocery shopping… we dance to it in the car… I sing it to Small child and Mr. Amazing just to hear their groans of disbelief that yet again it is going to be stuck in their heads…

My Christian (its his name… and his spiritual belief all wrapped up in one) bemoans it … and I post yet another MEME on his wall quoting it

My Day Job (The place I go to earn a living… while I wait to be discovered and become a renowned… well anything) did a cover of it with all kinds of cheesy dance moves… some including a forklift… and so I bring to you… Call me Maybe!

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

Are there even real wells anymore? Okay, I am sure there are! But not anywhere I have been. and she’s not a princess in a Disney movie, She is no Snow White.

I’d trade my soul for a wish,
Pennies and dimes for a kiss

I don’t know the value of a soul, But I am willing to bet it is worth more than a wish for a kiss… you’re sounding a bit easy

I wasn’t looking for this,
But now you’re in my way

What do you mean you weren’t looking for this? All you have done is sing about looking for this! Did you forget?

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

Uhhhh From a wishing well to a cheap bar? okay.. Im with you… no… no I am not

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

It’s hard to look right at him? What is he? Someone has been drinking from the crazy sauce

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

Other boys are chasing you… But you want the one you cannot stand to look at? Daddy Issues

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

He gave you nothing and he’s in your way… in your way of what exactly? This makes so little sense I want to punch you in the face

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

That’s it! I’m sick of this maybe business… Do you want him to call you or not? This relationship has so much drama before it’s even begun… I hope he never calls you because the break up song for this will be UNBEARABLE! (Taylor Swift get to writing it! Pronto!)

    Ahhh! My toddler adores this song… and it mostly irks my soul. I don’t know why that guy’s still in her way but I wish he’d move 🙂

    On the one hand, I loathe this song, curse the feeble mind that came up with such inane lyrics, and despise the fact that such a mediocre singer could get paid so very much for performing such a terrible piece of music. On the other hand, the memes about it have been brilliant… so… I don’t know?

    Stopping by from Mama Kat’s.

    I don’t deliberately listen to the song… but it is everywhere you go. In the stores, on the air, in the resturant. You can’t escape. No wonder we can’t get it out of our heads!

    It’s the “maybe” that gets me. Why on earth would you end your sentence that way — to prove you are an insecure, un-liberated young ingenue with poor grammar? Is that the message we want to send to our girls?

    And yet: that tune is so catchy!
