Captain & Tennille – Shop Around lyrics

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
You keep your freedom for as long as you can, now

My mama told me
You better shop around
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
You better shop around

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

Before you take a man and say I do, now
Make sure he's in love with you, now

My mama told me
You better shop around
You better shop around

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

Before you take a guy and say I do, now
Make sure he's in love with you, now
Make sure that his love is true, now
I hate to see you feeling sad and blue, now

My mama told me
You better shop around
You better shop around

You better shop around
You better shop around
You better shop around
You better, you better
You better shop, shop around
You better shop around
You better shop, shop, shop, shop, shop, shop
Shop, shop, shop, shop around
You better shop around

    Pretty song. My mother taught me a lot about men. One of the warnings she gave me was 'Don't marry a carpenter". She married a carpenter, my father. They ended up millioniares in 1977 before her son from a previous marriage destroyed everything they worked so hard to build for more than 50 years when she died an untimely death 1994. One of the relatives in Columbus, ga, Nancy Garner looks like Tennille in this video.
