CD  ·  DVD  ·  Sheet music


Shop Around Spoken:

When I became of age my mother called me to her side
She said, 'Son, you're growing up now, pretty soon you'll
take a bride".

Sings:

And then she said -
'Just because you've become a young man now
(Man, now)
There's still some things that you don't understand now
(Son, now)
Before you ask some girl for her hand now
(My son)
'Keep your freedom for as long as you can now'

My mama told me, 'You better shop around'
(Shop, shop around) a whoa-yeah
You better (uh-huh) shop around
(Shop-shop around)

Uh-uh-uh

''There's some things that I want you to know now'
(Uh-huh-ooo)
'A just as sure as the winds gonna blow now'
(Uh-huh-ooo)
'The women come and the women gonna go now'
(Uh-huh-ooo)
Before you tell 'em that you love 'em so now

My mama told me, 'You better shop around'
(Shop, shop around) whoa-yeah
You better (uh-huh) shop around
(Shop, shop around)

'A gotta get yourself a bargain son'
'Don't be sold on the very first one'
'Pretty girls come a dime a dozen'
'A-try to find one who's gonna give ya true lovin'
(Uh-huh-ooo)

'Before you take a girl and say 'I do, now'
(Uh-huh)
'A make sure she's in love a with you now'
My mama told me, ('you better shop around)

Instrumental

Oh-hey-hey-hey

(ooooh)
'Try to get yourself a bargain son'
'Don't be sold on the very first one'
(First one, first one)
A pretty girls come a dime a dozen
A try to find one who's gonna give ya true lovin'
(Uh-huh-ooo)

'Before you take a girl and say, 'I do' now' (uh-huh)
'Make sure she's in love with-a you now' (uh-huh)
'Make sure that her love is true now' (uh-huh)
'I'd hate to see you feelin' sad and blue now'

My mama told me, 'You better shop around'
(Shop, shop around)

Uh-huh don't let the first one get you'
(Shop, shop around)
Oh no, cuz I don't wanna see her 'wich-you''
(Uh-huh, 'before you let 'em hold you tight'
A yeah-yeah 'make sure she's alright'

Uh-huh, 'before you let 'em take your hand my son'
'Understand my son'
'Be a man my son'
'I know you can my son'
FADES-
I love it...a shop around
