Yeah yeah
That's right
We talk about your work how your boss is a jerk
We talk about your church and your head when it hurts
We talk about the troubles you've been having with your brother
About your daddy and your mother and your crazy ex-lover
We talk about your friends and the places that you've been
We talk about your skin and the dimples on your chin
The polish on your toes and the run in your hose
And God knows we're gonna talk about your clothes
You know talking about you makes me smile
But every once in awhile

I want to talk about me
Want to talk about I
Want to talk about number one
Oh my me my
What I think, what I like, what I know, what I want, what I see
I like talking about you, you, you, you usually, but occasionally
I want to talk about me
I want to talk about me

We talk about your dreams and we talk about your schemes
Your high school team and your moisturizer creme
We talk about your nanna up in Muncie, Indiana
We talk about your grandma down in Alabama
We talk about your guys of every shape and size
The ones that you despise and the ones you idolize
We talk about your heart, about your brains and your smarts
And your medical charts and when you start
You know talking about you makes me grin
But every now and then

I want to talk about me
Want to talk about I
Want to talk about number one
Oh my me my
What I think, what I like, what I know, what I want, what I see
I like talking about you, you, you, you usually, but occasionally
I want to talk about me
I want to talk about me

You you you you you you you you you you you you you
I want to talk about me

I want to talk about me
Want to talk about I
Want to talk about number one
Oh my me my
What I think, what I like, what I know, what I want, what I see
I like talking about you, you, you, you usually, but occasionally
I want to talk about me
I want to talk about me

    General Comment:Yeah, sure, okay, that's true.
    But this song... it's really nothing exciting. Quite the opposite. And he's not actually singing, you realize. All I have to say is: pathetic. And btw I'm sorry to say this in this particular section where Toby Keith fans will be reading it, but that's what I think.

    General Comment:Funny song! I love it. I love the way he emphasizes lines like, "We talk your *grandma* down in AlaBAMA*." It's fun.

    General Comment:There are two ways to view Toby Keith after hearing this song. Either he's a bad country singer who's incredibly egotistical, or he's a bad country singer who makes bad jokes about being egotistical in his song. Also, he uses patriotism to sell records.

    General Comment:basically this is a song to your girl. some guys can relate i guess. basically he's talking about always listening to his girl's problems and issues and feels like he can't get a word in. it's all said in jest from my point of view. but i like it.

    this is personally one of my faves...because i can relate in a joking way.

    General Comment:This song more than any other contemporary country song makes my blood boil. The meaning is obvious... he wants to talk about himself... but instead of just talking about himself, he talks about how he wants to talk about himself... This entire concept is ridiculously egotistical, and completely fucking pointless, esp considering that almost all of his songs are ABOUT HIM!!! Just look at how many of them start with the word "I". Does he really not talk about himself enough? Does he just love the sound of his own voice that much? Besides that, this song is written as though it is for a contest to see who can fill a song with the most trite bullshit possible. Who gives a fuck if you want to talk about yourself toby keith?
