Ruth to Boaz: "Call me, maybe?"

Wednesday, May 23, 2012
Dear Miss Carly Rae Jepsen:

Thank you for recording Call Me Maybe.

It's catchy, and I like it.

And I have a question about it. Were the lyrics inspired by the biblical book of Ruth?

You may not be aware of this, but you've done a masterful job putting the words and actions of Ruth, as recorded in chapter 3 verses 7-9, in modern language. Read it for yourself if you like. Every time I do, I hear Ruth saying: "Hey, I just met you, and this is crazy, but here's my number, so call me, maybe?"

so, thanks for that.
