View Lyrics

I’ve had it up to here
With all these holier-than-thous
Who want to save me from the devils wicked den
When all they really want is
What those jokers always want
And when they get we don’t see them
Until they want it again

Don’t quote me no commandments
Don’t preach me no jive
There’s only one commandment
Thou shall survive

Maybe I’m a sinner,
but who’s gonna cast the first stone?
It’s my body and my body
Is nobody’s business but my own
Nobody’s business but my own

What if I’m a sinner, hey,
I ain’t exactly alone
It’s my body and my body
Is nobody’s business but my own
Nobody’s business but my own

All those uptown ladies
Look and dress so fine
They can sell it their way,
Let me sell it mine!

Maybe you don’t like it
Maybe you don’t like it
But that don’t mean nothing because
My body is my business,
My business not yours

I know what I’m doing
And I know who I am
If you got a problem
I don’t give a damn (3x)

Ain’t no doubt about it
‘Cause baby it’s written in stone
It’s my body not your body
Cuz my body is my business,
My business
Is my business
And nobody’s business (4x)
But my own!
