“My Body” is about creating consent culture by teaching children that they have body autonomy.

Lyrics

My body is my body is my body 

My body is my body is mine  

My body is my body is — it’s not yours it’s mine

My body is my body is my body 

My body is my body is mine (it’s my body all mine)

My body is my body is — it’s not yours it’s mine

Nah nah it’s my body  (it’s my body all mine)

Nah nah it’s my body 

Nah nah it’s my body 

All mine


It’s my body 

And my rules

You want a hug 

Just ask and see if its cool

A high five or a squeeze

That can be alright

But if I’m not in the mood

Then that’s just fine


If I feel good 

I say so

But when I don’t 

I can say no ‘cause


My body is my body is my body 

My body is my body is mine  

My body is my body is — it’s not yours it’s mine

My body is my body is my body 

My body is my body is mine (it’s my body all mine)

My body is my body is — it’s not yours it’s mine


Yeah it’s your body

And your choice 

You got a brain and a mouth

So use your voice 

Be bold 

Speak up

Don’t be afraid 

No one should ever make you

Feel hurt or ashamed


Cause when you feel good 

You say so

But when you don’t 

You can say no ‘cause


My body is my body is my body 

My body is my body is mine  

My body is my body is — it’s not yours it’s mine

My body is my body is my body (my body is mine) 

My body is my body is mine (it’s my body all mine)

My body is my body is — it’s not yours it’s mine

Nah nah it’s my body  (it’s my body all mine)

Nah nah it’s my body 

Nah nah it’s my body 

All mine


C-O-N-S-E-N-T 

If you want to know just ask me please

C-O-N-S-E-N-T 

If you want to know just ask me please

R-E-S-P-E-C-T

Respect my words and my boundaries 

R-E-S-P-E-C-T

Respect my words and my boundaries 


Listen here

You don’t want to touch 

You don’t need to fear

This is your 

Body no one else

Tell you how to feel 

Here’s the deal

You can give consent 

And you can repeal

This is real

If you need a shield 

Tell em how you feel

I got body autonomy 

Body autonomy 

I don’t want you to talk to me

Bout my bodily qualities 

So nobody dishonor me

I got sovereignty over my body 

nobodies property 

Cause I own the monopoly 

I got body autonomy 


Nah nah it’s my body / body autonomy 

Nah nah it’s my body / body autonomy 

Nah nah it’s my body / body autonomy 

All mine / body / body / body

It’s my body
