Crow co-wrote it with band members David Baerwald, Bill Bottrell and Kevin Gilbert, using the lyrics of the Wyn Cooper poem "Fun" as the base of the song's lyrics.

Pre-1993 The Beginning

Sheryl Crow began her music career as a music teacher in Missouri. She lent her voice to advertisment jingles while on the hunt for ways to jump-start a music career. Although winning a spot as a back-up singer for Michael Jackson, Crow was not yet satisfied. She recorded her first debut album in 1992, a record that was ultimately scrapped by her label. It wouldn't be until Tuesday Night Music Club that Sheryl would debut until into a successful music career.
