Song of the Day #3,039: ‘Maybe Katie (Acoustic)’ – Barenaked Ladies

everythingToday’s random SOTD is an acoustic bonus track on the Barenaked Ladies’ 2003 album Everything To Everyone. It’s not as if the band is usually an electric powerhouse, so I’m not sure how much this version differs from the album original.

Sure enough, listening to the album cut reveals it’s pretty much the same song, just a little louder.

Both versions suffer from a repetitive chorus, but the song works well enough despite that.

[Chorus]x2
What’s so maybe about
What’s so maybe about
What’s so maybe about Katie?

[Verse 1]
What’s the use in hesitating?
Can’t you see that Katie’s waiting?
Just because her youth is fading
Doesn’t mean that she’s not worth dating

[Chorus]x2

[Verse 2]
I don’t know what the fuss is all about
Just take it slow
It’s not like you can’t live without her
To and fro
If you’ve got a shred of doubt then it’s not worth it

[Chorus]x2

[Verse 3]
Can’t you see her with her arms wide open
She’s everything that you’ve been hoping for
Forever’s not so long, stop moping
She’s got a daughter and you’re just not coping
Do you know everyone you ever swore you’d love for life
I don’t know them anymore
I know their names
I’d recognize them on the street and I don’t love them

[Chorus]x4
