call me calmly lyrics – barenaked ladies

you and i were meant to be
even though you don’t know me
i don’t even know your name
and do you think that you know mine?
you were lonely, i was bored
may be more than you can afford
but i’m sure we’ll meet halfway

and i’ve got this crazy feeling
you’ve been tryin’ to get to me
when all you have to do is calmly
call me
call me

basic service, sixty bucks
i’ll deal the hand, you try your luck
a pair gets meal, week and rent
and a straight gets even more
i’m no good at playin’ cards
i hold my dates in high regard
pay up front and you shall receive

love is never in between
if it isn’t one thing
then it’s always somethin’ else
i don’t even know what i mean
i thought that it was nothin’
now i can’t find nothin’ else
ohh, you can’t hide
at least you tried to

call me
call me
call me
call me

you’re ashamed of what you’ve done
all we did was have some fun
i won’t judge and i won’t tell
and i’ll forget you when you’ve gone
i pity all you working stiffs
living wonderin’, what if?
what if someday i was free?

and i’ve got this crazy feeling
you’ve been tryin’ to get to me
but all you have to do is calmly
call me
call me
camly
call me
