Songfacts®:

  • The light-hearted title track of Luke Combs' second album gives the listener some insight as to the kind of man he is. The North Carolina native doesn't mince words as he describes himself as "straight shootin', beer drinkin', rule breakin'." He also admits to being a "constant work-in-progress" and a "walking contradiction, far from mint condition." The singer concludes with a warning to the person he's addressing.

    I guess, be careful what you wish for, is all I meant when I said
    What you see is what you get
  • Combs wrote the song with:

    Barry Dean, who has co-written several of Little Big Town's biggest hits, including "Pontoon" and "Day Drinking," plus Ingrid Michaelson's "Girls Chase Boys."

    Jonathan Singleton, whose other credits include Billy Currington's "Don't" and Josh Turner's "Why Don't We Just Dance." He's also collaborated with Luke Combs on several previous occasions, including "Beer Never Broke My Heart."
