Song Lyric Sunday 10/15/17 – I Wanna Talk About Me

Bragging. Hah. What a humorous topic for Song Lyric Sunday.

I’ve never been much of a bragger and I don’t really discuss my own personal accomplishments with other people too much because I don’t like to come off as cocky but if asked I don’t mind discussing things and bragging about myself when I’m invited to. I’m usually one to take interest in the other person.

As such, this song I think fits my own approach to the topic. I absolutely loved this song when it first came out in 2001 and really got me listening to more country music for a short period of time. All these years later, it’s still probably my favorite song by this artist.

So here then is “I Wanna Talk About Me” written by Bobby Braddock and as made famous by Toby Keith.

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 wanna talk about me
Wanna talk about I
Wanna 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, usually, but occasionally
I wanna talk about me
I wanna 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 wanna talk about me
Wanna talk about I
Wanna 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, usually, but occasionally
I wanna talk about me
I wanna talk about me

You you you you you you you you youyouyouyouyou
I wanna talk about me

I wanna talk about me
Wanna talk about I
Wanna 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, usually, but occasionally
I wanna talk about me
I wanna talk about me

This is just such a fun song (even though the video is really fucking stupid). I love it. Hope you do too.

  1. Hahaha, I guess Toby is the choice so far for this theme. I remember when this song came out and I didn’t really like it because it’s all about bragging (which I’ve always thought is super annoying) but totally fits this theme. Great choice! 🙂
