Barenaked Ladies (BNL)
Call Me Calmly

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
I 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 trying to get to me
When all you have to do is calmly
Call me, call me

Basic service: sixty bucks
I'll roll the dice, you try your luck
A pair gets me a week in rent
And a straight gets even more
I'm no good at playing cards
I hold my dates in high regard
Pay up front and you shall receive

But love is never in-between if it isn't one thing, then it's always something else
I don't even know what I mean I thought that it was nothing
But now I can't find nothing else
Oh, you can't hide
(But at least you tried to)

Call me, call me, call me, call me

Are you 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 wondering "what if?"
"What if someday I was free?"

And I've got this crazy feeling
You've been trying to get to me
When all you have to do is calmly
Call me, call me, call me, call me
