Songfacts®:

  • Toby Keith told AOL Music about this song, which was written by him together with Scotty Emerick and Dean Dillon: "We were on the bus one night and somebody asked if anyone needed anything at the store and someone said, 'Yeah, pick up some beer. I need to get my drink on.' Might have been me, I don't remember. Dean, Scotty and I sat down a few days later to write and I told them this title. They loved it and Scotty started working on the groove. It fell out in about 45 minutes. If you're gonna sing it you better have your mouth and tongue loosened up because it's a word salad. They all get chopped up in there. They're coming and you better be ready because they can get by you quick. The instrumentation on this is the best on the album, I think."
