“Bucket” is a song by Carly Rae Jepsen, released in April 2009 as the third single from her debut studio album, Tug of War. The song peaked at number 32 on the Canadian Hot 100.

Music video

The official music video for the song premiered August 5, 2009, and received heavy airplay on Canadian music video channel MuchMusic. The video features Carly and her friends spending the day on the beach, ending with a bonfire scene. The video was shot in Vancouver in late April 2009, and the weather was "freezing cold" on the day of filming. All the extras in the video are Carly's real-life friends, and Carly commented that it felt more like a "beach party" than a music video.

Lyrics

(There's a hole in your bucket)

Sun's out we got a beach day
Forget yourself say why don't we people watch?
Kids are playin' 'round in the sand

(Little boy crying)
Oh no, he's got some troubles
Got us laughing as he throws his shovel
Nothing's really going as planned

[Chorus:]
I don't know how we're going to build a castle now
Do you want to start again somehow?
I'll stay until the sun comes down, down down

(Are you smiling?)
Look over my shoulder
See your laughter bubble over
Lately you've been working too hard

And I've been waiting to recognize
That sparkle that's in your eye
Those two dimples on your cheeks
The joy that lights the fire

[Chorus:]
I don't know how we're going to build a castle now
Do you want to start again somehow?
I'll stay until the sun comes down, down down

[Refrain:]
There's a hole in my bucket,
Dear Liza, Dear Liza
There's a hole in my bucket,
Dear Liza, a hole

[Chorus:]
And I don't know how we're supposed to build a castle now
Do you want to start again somehow?
I'll stay until the sun comes down, down, down
I'll stay until the sun comes...

I don't know how we're gonna build a castle now
Do you want to start again somehow?
I'll stay until the sun comes down, down down
'til the sun comes down

(Sun's down, here come the waves, and there goes the carousel)
Sun's coming down, I'll stay
(Sun's down, here come the waves, and there goes the carousel)
Sun's coming down, I'll stay
(Sun's down, here come the waves, and there goes the carousel)
Sun's coming down, I'll stay
(Sun's down, here come the waves, and there goes the carousel)
