"Bucket" as written by Carly Rae Jepsen and Ryan Stewart....
(There's a hole in your bucket)

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

Oh no, he's got some troubles
Got us laughing as he throws his shovel
Nothings really going as planned

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

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

There's a hole in my bucket,
Dear Liza, Dear Liza
There's a hole in my bucket,
Dear Liza, a hole

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
'till 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)

    Song MeaningThis song seems to be about a long-term (probably married) couple. They haven't spent time together for a while, and they're out enjoying an uncharacteristically carefree day on the beach ("Forget yourself say why don't we people watch?")

    Though they run into various mishaps ("Nothings really going as planned"), the woman is especially happy to see her man relaxing for a change ("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...")

    The man confesses something to the woman ("there's a hole in my bucket"), a problem that he believes will threaten their relationship ("I don't know how we're supposed to build a castle now"). The woman, however, reassures him that no matter what, she'll stay with him ("I'll stay until the sun comes down").

    Personally I think the "hole in my bucket" thing might actually refer to sterility, LOL. The guy can't have kids, hence he's worried about how they'll start a family ("build a castle").
