"You Shouldn't Kiss Me Like This" is a song written and recorded by American country music artist Toby Keith. It is the ninth track on his 1999 album How Do You Like Me Now?! and was released as the fourth and final single from the album in October 2000. The song reached Number One on the Billboard Hot Country Singles & Tracks (now Hot Country Songs) charts. It also peaked at number 32 on Billboard Hot 100.

Music video[edit]

Directed by Michael Salomon, the music video introduces a young man speaking with a beautiful and wealthy older woman (Tané McClure) as he helps others clean up after a party. An obvious friendship is shown from her thankfulness for his aid. In the same respect, he kisses her on the cheek, uncertain of any other way to thank her for all she has done for his family.

The unexpected kiss leads to a chain of events from dancing, to mutual sadness as the late night ends knowing he must leave for college the next morning, to his unexpected return which brings out passion between them.

In stark contrast to the emotions of the lyrics, a surprise ending reveals that the entire video was a daydream. It is brought to an abrupt halt as she shoves a bag full of garbage in his arms to throw away as he leaves and gives him a tactless tug and pat on his cheek wishing him luck.
