I’m Goin’ Shoppin’ with You song lyrics

I’m Goin’ Shoppin’ with You song lyrics – performed in Gold Diggers of 1935 – music by Harry Warren, Lyrics by Al Dubin

Sung by Dick Powell to Gloria Stuart. This is a montage of scenes of Stuart shopping for everything from lingerie to jewelry. Much to the dismay of her penny-pinching mother, Alice Brady!

Dick Powell: I’m not a salesman, but understand
I know the laws of supply and demand
All your demands, dear, I will supply
‘Cause if it’s for my baby, I’ll buy

Whenever you go shopping
To buy a dress that’s new
Honey, I’ll keep my eye on the dress that you try on
‘Cause I’m going shopping with you

When you go to the jewelers
To buy a gem or two
On your fourth little finger, her ring’s gonna linger
‘Cause I’m going shopping with you

Lots of shoes and stockings
And plenty of new chapeaus
Just what I could go for
For the cute little baby inside those clothes.

Mmm, you go and pick the cottage
I’ll put the mortgage through
Honey, I don’t know whether we’ll move in together
But I’m going shopping with you
Where’s your basket?
I’m going shopping with you

(Instrumental Break)

Gloria Stuart: Let’s go to the beauty parlor.
Dick Powell: But why?
Gloria Stuart: I need my face redone.
Dick Powell: They won’t have much to do
If they paint you, they’re silly, they can’t paint a lily,
But we’ll let ’em try it for fun,
But I’m going shopping with you

Gloria Stuart: We must go to the grocery.
Dick Powell: The grocers?
Gloria Stuart: I might need an egg or two
Dick Powell: I’ll bring home the bacon, or am I mistaken
About going shopping with you

We can build a nest with
Sweet kisses and then someday
Maybe we’ll be blessed with
In the Pig Latin language, an aby-bay

Gloria Stuart: I’ll buy a baby blanket
Dick Powell: What color?
Gloria Stuart: All trimmed in baby blue
Dick Powell: Okay, then I’ll be right there behind you, ’cause let me remind you
That I’m going shopping with you
In the basement
I’m going shopping with you
