My momma told me. 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 momma told me you better shop around.
There's still some things that I want you to know now. Just as sure how 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 momma told me 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 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 hate to see you feeling sad and blue now. My momma told me, you better shop around!
