The Song’s Content
What will you do if you find out that someone you love is cheating on you? Will you still forgive them, walk away, or find a way for a sweet revenge? Nobody wants to be cheated on, because it’s something that will not just ruin the relationship but also the trust you built for that person. Aaron Tippin’s song is all about a woman taking revenge on her lover who has been cheating on her.
The story of how the song was created is actually a little funny. Aaron said that it was because of a fight between him and his wife, not a huge fight just a little misunderstanding. It was when he told his wife to follow the cookbook instructions on whatever she was cooking. Then he knew that his wife will get mad so he tried to divert the situation. They realize that their little argument can be turned into a song, hence “Kiss This” was born. Sometimes good things come out of something.
