My Body

From the album Draw The Line Buy Now


Cho: My body’s nobody’s body but mine!

You run your own body, let me run mine!


My heart was made to be filled-up with love

Not to be ordered, or broken or shoved

My hands were made to hold other hands,

Not to hold guns in faraway lands



My womb was made to make kids when I please

Not to obey man-made laws and decrees

My genes were made to pass on human traits

Not to be fried with your atomic waste!



Our body’s one body, one voice is heard

We each sing for freedom when we sing these words!
