  • Lyrics
  • This track finds Simpson asking her new love interest to stop doing the household chores and not worry about his appearance, just come on over.
  • Simpson said in her publicity materials that this song is all about the excitement of a new crush. She explained: "It's about that feeling you get when just can't wait to see the person you're crushing on. You feel like you're going to burst if you can't see them right then and there." Could the Texan have had in mind her boyfriend - Dallas Cowboys player Tony Romo?
  • Seemingly channeling her inner Texan, this was Simpson's debut Country release. However Jessica had the last laugh on those who scoffed at her switch from Pop to Country when it successfully entered at #41 on Billboard's Country single chart, the highest debut for a Country music newcomer. The previous record belonged to Miranda Lambert ("Me and Charlie Talking") and Brad Cotter ("I Meant To"), both debut Country singles, which entered the chart at #42.
  • Jessica Simpson on hearing her song on Country radio for the first time: "I got chills and butterflies in my stomach. It felt like the first time I heard myself on the radio when I was 19. Country is where my heart is. It's refreshing to share something that feels so close to home. I am so honored to become a part of the Country community."
  • Simpson together with Rachel Proctor and Victoria Banks wrote this. Rachel Proctor previously co-wrote Martina McBride's 2002 single "Where Would You Be" and has recorded several hits of her own including the Top 20 single "Me and Emily." Victoria Banks is best known for penning the Sara Evans hit song "Saints & Angels," for which she won a 2003 ASCAP Country Music Award.
