  • This David Lee Murphy and Rodney Clawson penned ballad finds Jason Aldean singing of a guy warning a girl that he might not be the right boyfriend for her. Aldean told Billboard magazine: "That song is what a lot of guys probably should say to girls if the girl's into them or whatever, 'I'm gonna save you some trouble here and give you a heads up: you do not wanna hang out with me. You are hot, and I'm all about it, but you're probably not gonna like me tomorrow.' That's what that song's about, 'if you knew what was good for you, you wouldn't be hanging around very much," Aldean explains. "It's probably what guys should say to girls but don't, so a girl would probably appreciate a guy telling them that. As a father, I can appreciate it."
