The Lyrics

A bone of contention since shops were invented, I imagine.... ;^)
Ooh-oooh-ooh oooh-oooh ooh-ooh-ooooooh (tick, tock, tick, tock)
Ooh-oooh-ooh oooh-oooh ooh-ooooh..... shop…… ninety-one….!

Black, cream or blue, should I get one or two-oo
Do they hide my lumps and flaunt my curves?
My guy’s sitting outside while I’m outfitting
I think that I’m getting on his nerves

(Why can’t I) shop like a man,
Get with the plan,
Cut to the de-ci-sion?
No turning back,
Rip it off the rack
Just shop like a man and run!

Ooh-oooh-ooh oooh-oooh ooh-ooh-ooooooh (tick, tock)....oooh (tick, tock)
Ooh-oooh-ooh oooh-oooh ooh-ooh-ooooooh

These shoes are ni-ice, and they’re in my si-ize
But they’re half-price in the mall
Now it’s a chooser between cerise and fuschia
Guess I’ll just have to buy them all

(Wish I could) shop like a man
Fast as I can
Buy the first thing I see
Or if I’m on
A shopping marathon
Just not take a man with me!

Ooh-oooh-ooh oooh-oooh ooh-ooh-ooooooh (tick, tock)....oooh (tick, tock)
**(Repeat ‘til fade or slumber – whichever comes first)**

I thought you brought him along to pay for everything.

Not sure if you wrote it in attention to thus but there happens to be a Frankie Valli contest going on right now that you should put this into: (I haven't see you on the boards so I thought I should keep you updated)

Here's how you shop like a man: You see something you like, if you can afford it, get it. Don't assume there's a bargain around the corner: Get it the hell over with. Like I'm going to do with this parody: $4.99. $5.55 with tax.

Wendy - Fun take on the differences of shopping habits. The reasons can be found in the 1991 one-person show by Rob Becker "Defending The Caveman". Check it out if you have time. ;D

I have no problem shopping like a man. Life's too short for malls.
