"Let's Get Ready!"

Here at Get Ready, we're as big of fans of "Call Me Maybe" as anyone. We decided to write our own cover -- about emergency preparedness, of course -- and shoot a music video to go along with it.

Watch the video below, and then scroll down to find out more information, including the lyrics (helpful for singing along!) And make sure and share it with others!

Lyrics

I remember it well,
The river starting to swell
I saw the tree as it fell,
Then it was in my way

I was so scared and I wished
Evacuation route missed
I wasn't ready for this,
So now it's time to change

My heart was racin’
Dark clouds, wind was blowin'
Green sky, hail was fallin'
there goes the power, baby!

Hey, I just met you,
And this is crazy,
Bad weather’s coming,
So let’s get ready!

It's hard to predict,
what will happen baby,
Got a first aid kit,
So let’s get ready!

Hey, I just met you,
And this is crazy,
tornado’s coming,
So let’s get ready!

And all the other storms,
They won’t phase me,
A flood is coming,
So let’s get ready!

We’ll have water for all,
Cans of food in the hall
phone numbers on the wall,
so we know who to call

We’ll meet up on the hill
Practice our escape drill
We’ll make a plan, get a kit,
And we’ll be on our way

Flashlight I’ll be holdin’,
Dark clouds, wind is blowin'
Green sky, hail is fallin'
Let’s shelter in place, baby?

Hey, I just met you,
And this is crazy,
But Heat waves happen,
So let’s get ready!

It's hard to predict,
what could happen baby,
Got a stockpile,
So let’s get ready!

Hey, I just met you,
And this is crazy,
Disasters happen,
So let’s get ready!

And all the other storms,
They won’t phase me,
Hurricane’s coming,
So let’s get ready!

Before you came into my life
I was just so scared
Now we feel pre-pared
I was just so, so scared

Before you came into my life
I was just so scared
But now we're ready
Now we're so, so ready

It's hard to predict,
what could happen baby,
Got a flu shot,
So glad we’re ready!

Hey, I just met you,
And this is crazy,
Pandemics happen,
So glad we’re ready!

And all the other storms,
They won’t phase me,
Zombies happen,
So glad we’re ready!

Before you came into my life
I was just so scared
Now we feel pre-pared
Now we’re so pre-pared

Before you came into my life
I was just so scared
And you should know that

So glad we’re ready!
