Content[edit]

Getcha Some is a moderate up-tempo with spoken-word verses. This song is about a man who is trying to achieve higher things in life. First he needs love and to get the love he needs money. Once he gets the money, he gets the girl but after a while he still doesn't feel fulfilled and realizes he needs to have children.

"Getcha Some"" is cited as an example of country-rap, due to the use of a strong beat and rhythmically spoken, essentially amelodic lyrics. This is also shown in his 2001 single "I Wanna Talk About Me",[1][2] as well as in his 2011 single "Red Solo Cup".

Music video[edit]

The music video, directed by Michael Salomon, takes place at a natural history museum in the "Hall of Human Behavior". It involves Keith watching interactive exhibits of real people going through various life events as described in the song. It premiered in August, 1998.

"Getcha Some" debuted at number 63 on the U.S. Billboard Hot Country Singles & Tracks for the week of September 12, 1998.
