Songfacts®:

  • Many of the tracks on El Camino are about falling for the wrong kind of girl. "She was milk and honey/she was filthy money," Dan Auerbach sings on this track, one of the most blatant examples of the album's suspicion of women.
  • The song features a distorted talkbox solo. "They've sort of become a joke, but they're amazing," Auerbach enthused to American Songwriter magazine of the much-maligned effects unit.
