"Me Too" is the title of a song co-written and recorded by American country music singer-songwriter Toby Keith. It was released in November 1996 as the third and final single from his album Blue Moon. The song reached the top of the Billboard Hot Country Singles & Tracks chart. Keith wrote the song with Chuck Cannon.

Content[edit]

The song is a romantic ballad from the perspective of a man who regularly struggles with saying the phrase "I love you" to his significant other, and instead performs physical tasks as a way of showing his affection to her. The only easy way for him to utter that phrase is by simply telling her "me too" after she says "I love you" to him first, hoping she will understand that means he is in agreement with what she just told him.

Critical reception[edit]

Deborah Evans Price, of Billboard magazine reviewed the song favorably, saying that it is a song that a lot of men will relate to. She goes on to say that Keith "turns in a smooth believable performance."[1]

Music video[edit]

This was Toby's last music video to be directed by Marc Ball and premiered in early 1997.
