Make Me Wanna Lyrics by Thomas Rhett


Thomas Rhett Lyrics

Make Me Wanna Lyrics
Windows down, country sound, FM on the radio
Just me and you and the man on the moon
Cruisin' down some old back road

Now baby don't you look at me that way
'Cause you know there's only so much I can take
'Cause you make me wanna

Pull this truck to the side of the road
Slide on over, let me hold you close and tell
You everything I'm thinking
Hop on out and let the tailgate fall
Get drunk on you with no alcohol
If you don't stop I'm gonna
Girl you make me wanna

Yeah
Hm hm

You know better than to wear that dress
It oughta be against the law, yeah
Plain and simple, girl them dimples
Know just how to turn me on

Now baby don't you look at me that way
'Cause you know there's only so much I can take
'Cause you make me wanna

Pull this truck to the side of the road
Slide on over, let me hold you close and tell
You everything I'm thinking
Hop on out and let the tailgate fall
Get drunk on you with no alcohol
If you don't stop I'm gonna
Girl you make me wanna

You make me wanna
Wake up with you
In the bed of my truck and start
Over again when the sun comes up

You make me wanna
Pull this truck to the side of the road
Slide on over, let me hold you close and tell
You everything I'm thinking
Hop on out and let the tailgate fall
Get drunk on you with no alcohol
If you don't stop I'm gonna
You make me wanna

Pull this truck to the side of the road
Slide on over, let me hold you close and tell
You everything I'm thinking
Hop on out and let the tailgate fall
Get drunk on you with no alcohol
If you don't stop I'm gonna
Girl you make me wanna

Yeah

Make Me Wanna Info:

• Thomas Rhett explained: "This song came out because I had just been listening to Stayin' Alive by The Bee Gees and I went into a room with a few buddies. We wanted to write a song with country lyrics, but we wanted it to have the old '80s dance feel. That's kind of why this song has such a funky groove and is a great song to play live."

• It showcases an R&B side to Rhett. He said: "I've got a lot of that in me. I grew up listening to (Sittin' On) The Dock Of The Bay, Aretha Franklin, Muddy Waters, and all The Rolling Stones stuff. I think that's where the soulful side of my voice comes from. It's not 100% bluesy, but I come from a lot of that. So to put out a song like this is really fun for me."

"It's just a song that makes you feel good. You just want to crank the windows down and have a good time with it."

• Billboard magazine chose the song as the Best Country Song of 2014.

Rhett said: "Making this video put me a little outside my comfort zone, I wanted it to have a little swagger in a loose, fun way and reflect that sort of The Bee Gees feel the song has. I've never claimed to be a dancer, but me and my band love to goof off on stage, especially to this song. I wanted the video to reflect that and let everyone know it's OK to shake your hips a little bit."
