My mama told me

She said, just because you become a young man now
There's just somethings that you don't understand now
Before you ask some girl the hand now
Keep your freedom for as long as you can now

My mama told me
You better shop around
Oh, oh, you better shop around

Hey, there's somethings that I want you to know
Just as sure as the wind's gonna blow now
The women come and the women gonna go now
Before you tell them that you love them so now

My mama told me
You better shop around
Oh yeah, better shop around

Hey, 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 one that'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 your love is true now
I hate to see you feeling sad and blue now

My mama told me
You better shop, around, oh
