Shop Around
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
And then she said

Just because you've become a young man now
There's still some things that you don't understand now
Before you ask some girl for her hand now
Keep your freedom for as long as you can now
My mama told me, you better shop around
Whoa, yeah, you better shop around

Ah, there's some things that I want you to know now
Just as sure as the wind's gonna blow now
The women come and the women gonna go now
Before you tell 'em that you love 'em so now
My mama told me, you better shop around
Whoa, yeah, you better shop around

Try to get yourself a bargain, son
Don't be sold on the very first one
Pretty girls come a dime a dozen
Try to find you one who's gonna give you true loving

Before you take a girl and say I do now
Make sure she's in love with you now
My mama told me, you better shop around

Oh, yeah
Try to get yourself a bargain, son
Don't be sold on the very first one
Pretty girls come a dime a dozen
Try to find you one who's gonna give you true loving

Before you take a girl and say I do now
Make sure she's in love with you now
Make sure that her love is true now
I'd hate to see you feeling sad and blue now
My mama told me, you better shop around

Oh, don't let the first one getcha
Oh no, 'cause I don't want to see her with ya
Uh huh, before you let 'em hold you tight
Ah, yeah, yeah, make sure she's all right
Uh huh, before you let her take your hand, my son
Understand, my son
Be a man, my son
I know you can, my son
I love you
