Intro:
When I became of age
My mother called me to her side
She said girl you're growing up now,
Soon you'll be a bride

Just because you've become a young woman now
There's still some things
That you don't understand now
Before you ask some guy for his hand now
Keep your freedom for as long as you can now
My mama told me!
You better shop around!

There's some things that I want you to know now
Just as sure as the wind's gonna blow now
The men'll come and the men are gonna go now
Before you tell 'em that you love 'em so now
My mama told me!
You better shop around!

Try to get yourself a bargain, girl
Don't be sold on the very first one
Handsome guys came a dime a dozen
Try to find you one
Who's gonna give you true loving

Before you take a man and say I do now
My mama told me!
You better shop around!

(Solo)

Try to get yourself a bargain, girl
Don't be sold on the very first one
Handsome guys come a dime a dozen
Try to find you one
Who's gonna give you true loving

Before you take a man and say I do now
Make sure he's in love with you now
Make sure that his love is true now
I hate too see you feeling sad and blue now
My mama told me!
You better shop around!

(You better shop around)

(Better Shop around)
(Shop Around)
