"Things That Never Cross a Man's Mind" is a song written by Tim Johnson, Don Poythress and Wynn Varble, and recorded by American country artist Kellie Pickler. It was released as the third and final single from her debut album, Small Town Girl.

The song is part of the track list for Now That's What I Call Country.


"Things That Never Cross a Man's Mind" is an up-tempo song, featuring electric guitar and piano in the production. The song's female narrator playfully describes the differences between men and women by stating things that the average woman thinks of on a regular basis, "that never cross[es] a man's mind." Ironically, the song was written by three men.


Billboard magazine described the song as "a frisky uptempo number that captures the playful side of Pickler's personality. Men will chuckle and women will nod in agreement. It's a clever lyric with a catchy melody, and Pickler's performance is absolute perfection. She has personality to spare, and this lighthearted single is tailor-made for country radio."[1]
