Scotty McCreery’s new single is an amazing song inspired by his wife Gabi.
Written by McCreery alongside James McNair and Jordan Schmidt, “Why you gotta be like that” is taken from the singer’s highly-anticipated fifth studio album.
About it, American Idol 2011 winner said: “I definitely think this is a little more, like I said earlier, back to my roots kind of country. There’s going to be plenty of pedal steel on it, there’s gonna be some fiddle on it. They’re story-telling songs, which I think is what I do best. Everybody has their thing. For me, I think it’s telling stories, so I’m gonna be singing about my wife, I’m gonna be singing about life, the country life, the state of the world right now in a couple songs, so, you know, it’s just a very real album, I think”.

Lyrics:

Got a Party at 8 it’s 7:53
Keys in my hand somewhere to be
And you come strolling down the stairs

You got that up to somethin’ look on your face
Looks like we are gonna be fashionably late
But you don’t seem to care

So I set down my whiskey and you kiss me
You lean your back against the wall
When we walk in and it’s past ten
I’m a tell em’ it’s your fault

Baby why you gotta wear them jeans
Hair down and a white tank top
Baby why you gotta be so mean
Looking so good I can’t stop
My hands from touchin’ your body
You know I love it but I got to ask
Baby why
Baby why
Baby why you gotta be like that

I’m so predictable it’s like you know
That denim and low cut combo
With the fire in your eyes
Gonna get me everytime

It’s been like that since we met
You keep messing with my head
You love to play that game
And I hate to complain but

Baby why you gotta wear them jeans
Hair down and a white tank top
Baby why you gotta be so mean
Looking so good I can’t stop
My hands from touchin’ your body
You know I love it but I got to ask
Baby why
Baby why
Baby why you gotta be like that

Woah-oh

Why you gotta be like that

I set down my whiskey and you kiss me
You lean your back against the wall
When we walk in and it’s past ten
I’m a tell em’ it’s your fault

Baby why you gotta wear them jeans
Hair down and a white tank top
Baby why you gotta be so mean
Looking so good I can’t stop
My hands from touchin’ your body
You know I love it but I got to ask

Baby why

Baby why

Baby why you gotta be like that

Woah-oh why you gotta be like that

Baby why you gotta be like that

Baby why, baby why

Baby why, baby why
