You got the huggin'est arms
The thrillin'est eyes
You're just my style
And you're just the right size
Gonna stop
Uh, shoppin' around
I'm gonna stop
Shoppin' around 'cause I found the girlie I’m lookin' for
Oh, the very first time
You touched my lips
Took my little red book
And tore it to bits
Ain't gonna be
Searchin' no more
I'm gonna stop
Shoppin' around 'cause I found the girlie I’m lookin' for
Ain't no other dolly I’m wantin' to hold
Hey, hey, baby
I really am sold on you
Ooh, ooh, such a pretty little package
I never did see
Gonna wrap you up and take you home with me
I'm thrilled like never before
I'm gonna stop
Shoppin' around 'cause I found the girlie I'm lookin' for
Ain't no other dolly I’m wantin' to hold
Hey, hey, baby
I really am sold on you
Ooh, ooh, such a pretty little package
I never did see
Gonna wrap you up and take you home with me
I'm thrilled like never before
I'm gonna stop
Shoppin' around 'cause I found the girlie I’m lookin' for
I'm gonna stop
Uh shoppin' around
I'm gonna stop
Uh shoppin' around
I'm gonna stop
Shoppin' around

A great 60's type rocker from one of the strongest film tracks of his career. I enjoy without reservation the whole album and this is one of the many highlights.

A fun song, sung perfect. I compared this version to the Top Cats version and the greatest difference is the singing. Elvis was a master, but not everyone is worthy to be a pupil. The Dixie Aces have done a real stinking cover off this song. It appears that only Elvis could make a diamond out off coal.

This is easily one of Elvis' very best movie songs from the 1960's and it's always so much fun to listen to.

In those days Elvis could pick an average song and just make it great. In my opinion Only ELVIS can do that.

ELVIS in top form.

Fun song. Elvis, sings it well. Fits nicely in the movie.

Light rocker is the best you can say about it. Elvis in good voice on a pretty weak song.

Fine, light rocker from the movie and soundtrack LP "G.I. Blues". Well written "Tepper/Bennett" (with help from Aaron Schroeder) song that Elvis delivers in top-notch fashion. His performance of the song in the movie is a great scene. 4 stars (leaning towards 4 1/2).

Tepper/Bennett with another wimpy attempt at penning a rock and roll song. Nice performance even though a bit tongue in cheek. Worse was surely yet to come from this out of touch duo.
