This is an ode to Girl Scout cookies, which are sold to raise funds for the Girl Scouts of the United States of America (GSUSA) youth organization. When he was a teenager, NRBQ keyboardist, Terry Adams, resided close to the bakers in Louisville, Kentucky, where these sweet treats were made. Adams told Shirley Haun
that the lingering scent of the cookies inspired this song: "You could smell the cookies being baked. You also could smell whiskey being made down there (laughs), so it was a combination. And sometimes if the wind was blowing the wrong way you could smell Dupont on the river. That wasn't a good thing. But the cookies was always a good day, smelling the cookies. So that's one of my Louisville songs."
