Baby's Gone Shopping lyrics

Babys gone shopping
By: jimmy buffett
1988
There are ten pictures of marilyn monroe in my studio and I always fantasize while Im singing about being a chauffeur in the car as marilyn hits the stores on madison avenue and then she asks m
Go to mexico with her.
Babys gone shoppin shes looking around
Shes checkin out the clothes on the boys in town
Pick up this drop off that
Stares at her pictures from the fotomat
Oh she likes what she sees
But shes afraid of what she needs
She should be here with me
She should be here with me

But I dont make it easy, Im no day at the beach
Just an old road dog gettin harder to teach
Hang on this planet, hang on each twirl
Scatter my belongins all over this world
I get more wrapped up each day
Shes lookin further away
She should be here with me
She should be here with me

(horn solo)

Im no good at conversation (no good)
I dont want a proclamation (oh, no, no)
I just think that we could use
A little face-to-face communication
Ow!

Ive been thinkin, thinkin this through
Its time to stop all this selfishness both me and you
Ill stop from here, you stop from there
Well meet somewhere in the middle darlin I dont care
I dont want no more heartaches its time to put on the brakes
She should be here with me
I dont want no more heartaches its time to slam on em brakes
She should be here with me

Babys gone shoppin, she should be here with me
No more bar hoppin, she should be here with me

Now, I dont know but Ive been told
That city livin is awfully cold
She should be right here, here with me (he should be...)
Brrrrrr... (...here with me)

Babys 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 me
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 me (gone shoppin)
Ba-ba-ba-ba-ba-ba-ba-ba-ba-ba-ba-ba-babys gone shoppin (gone shoppin)

Coda:
She should be here with me
She 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!)
