Baby’s gone shoppingBy: jimmy buffett1988There are ten pictures of marilyn monroe in my studio and I always fantasize while I’m singing about being a chauffeur in the car as marilyn hits the stores on madison avenue and then she asks mGo to mexico with her.Baby’s gone shoppin’ she’s looking aroundShe’s checkin’ out the clothes on the boys in townPick up this drop off thatStares at her pictures from the fotomatOh she likes what she seesBut she’s afraid of what she needsShe should be here with meShe should be here with meBut I don’t make it easy, I’m no day at the beachJust an old road dog gettin’ harder to teachHang on this planet, hang on each twirlScatter my belongin’s all over this worldI get more wrapped up each dayShe’s lookin’ further awayShe should be here with meShe should be here with me(horn solo)I’m no good at conversation (no good)I don’t want a proclamation (oh, no, no)I just think that we could useA little face-to-face communicationOw!I’ve been thinkin’, thinkin’ this throughIt’s time to stop all this selfishness both me and youI’ll stop from here, you stop from thereWe’ll meet somewhere in the middle darlin’ I don’t careI don’t want no more heartaches it’s time to put on the brakesShe should be here with meI don’t want no more heartaches it’s time to slam on ’em brakesShe should be here with meBaby’s gone shoppin’, she should be here with meNo more bar hoppin’, she should be here with meNow, I don’t know but I’ve been toldThat city livin’ is awfully coldShe should be right here, here with me (he should be...)Brrrrrr... (...here with me)Baby’s gone shoppin’, she should be here with me (he should be...)(...here with me)No more bar, no more bar, no more bar hoppin’Should be here with me (he should be here with me)She should be here with meShe should be here with me (he should be...)(...here with me)No more bar, no more bar, no more bar hoppin’Should be here with me (he should be here with me)She should be here with me (gone shoppin’)Ba-ba-ba-ba-ba-ba-ba-ba-ba-ba-ba-ba-baby’s gone shoppin’ (gone shoppin’)Coda:She should be here with meShe should be here with me (gone shoppin’, he should be...)She should be here with me (he should be here with me)She should be here with me (gone shoppin’, he should be here!)
