Tim McGraw’s ‘I Like It, I Love It’ Will Transport You Back to the 90s

 

Sept. 16, 1995 was a big day for 28-year-old Tim McGraw. His upbeat single, “I Like It, I Love It” reached the top of the country charts and became the third No. 1 song of his career.

“I Like It, I Love It” was able to hold onto the top spot of the Hot Country Songs chart for an impressive five straight weeks. The rowdy track was written by Jeb Stuart Anderson, Steve Dukes and Mark Hall. “I LIke It, I Love It” was featured on McGraw’s third studio album, All I Want. That album went on to sell over 2 million copies and brought his level of stardom to a new high.

Even after 20 years, “I Like It, I Love It” stands as one of McGraw’s most recognizable songs. Its infectious quality is supported by electric guitar and percussion. McGraw’s energetic performance style, charisma and incredible talent made him one of the hottest new male artists in country music that year.

Although the song hasn’t been forgotten by fans, it would be no surprise if many have long forgotten the track’s official video. It provides an instant flashback to the mid-1990s, when big hair, tight jeans and crazy video graphics were all the rage.

“I Like It, I Love It” Lyrics:

Spent forty-eight dollars last night at the county fair

I threw out my shoulder but I won her that teddy bear

She’s got me saying sugar-pie, honey, darlin’, and dear

I ain’t seen the Braves play a game all year

I’m gonna get fired, if I don’t get some sleep

My long lost buddies say I’m gettin’ in to deep

But I like it, I love it, I want some more of it

I try so hard, I can’t rise above it

Don’t know what it is ’bout that little gal’s lovin’

But I like it, I love it, I want some more of it

My Mama and Daddy tried to teach me courtesy

But it never sank in ’til that girl got a hold of me

Now I’m holding umbrellas and openin’ up doors

I’m taking out the trash and I’m sweepin’ my floors

Crossin’ my fingers, and countin’ every kiss

Prayin’ that it keeps goin’ on like this

But I like it, I love it, I want some more of it

I try so hard, I can’t rise above it

Don’t know what it is ’bout that little gal’s lovin’

But I like it, I love it, I want some more of it

Got to wash my truck and dress up

To pick her up to watch TV

And she sits down on the sofa

She’ll move a little closer

She can’t get enough of me

But I like it, I love it, I want some more of it

I try so hard, I can’t rise above it

Don’t know what it is ’bout that little gal’s lovin’

But I like it, I love it, I want some more of it
