The song is a lament by the singer that despite the expensive things he gives her, his girlfriend prefers to spend her time out dancing and flirting with other men, rather than staying at home and showing affection for him.
In the 1980s, the syndicated television show Pro Wrestling This Week used the song as its opening and closing theme. In April 2007, the song was featured on the TV series Scrubs in Season 6, Episode 16 "My Words of Wisdom". The gospel at J.D.'s (fantasized) funeral sings it as one of his last requests. In November 2012, the song was used in Season 4, Episode 7 of Regular Show, entitled "Guy's Night."
The song is featured in the video game Grand Theft Auto V, on the radio station Space 103.2.
