Lyrics: Peter Alsop.
Tune: Peter Alsop.


My body’s nobody’s body but mine.
You run your own body; let me run mine!

My nose was made to sniff and to sneeze,
To smell what I want, and to pick when I please!

My lungs were made to hold air when I breathe.
I am in charge of just how much I need!

My body’s nobody’s body but mine.
You run your own body; let me run mine!

My legs were made to dance me around,
To walk and to run, and to jump up and down.

And my mouth was made to blow up a balloon.
I can eat, kiss, and spit. I can whistle a tune!

My body’s nobody’s body but mine.
You run your own body; let me run mine!

No one knows my body better than me.
It tells me, “Let’s eat.” It tells me, “Go pee!”

My body’s nobody’s body but mine.
You run your own body; let me run mine!

Don’t hit me or kick me; don’t push or shove.
Don’t hug me too hard when you show me your love!

My body’s nobody’s body but mine.
You run your own body; let me run mine!

Sometimes, it’s hard to say, “No!” and be strong.
When the “No!” feelings come, then I know something’s wrong!

’Cause my body’s mine from my head to my toe,
Please leave it alone when you hear me say, “No!”

My body’s nobody’s body but mine.
You run your own body; let me run mine!

Secrets are fun when they’re filled with surprise
But not when they hurt us with tricks, threats, and lies.

My body’s mine to be used as I choose,
Not to be threatened or forced or abused!

My body’s nobody’s body but mine.
You run your own body; let me run mine!

Our body’s one body; one voice is heard.
We each sing for freedom when we sing these words!

My body’s nobody’s body but mine.
You run your own body; let me run mine!
