David Archuleta

(by Smokey Robinson)

My mama told me

She said,
Just because you've become a young man now
There's just 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 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 how the wind's gonna blow now
The women'll come and the women gonna go now
Before you tell 'em that you love 'em so now

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

Gotta get yourself a bargain, son
Don't be sold on the very first one
Pretty girls coming dime a dozen
Try to find one who's gonna give you true lovin'

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 mama told me
You better shop... around..
