A E A Bodily functions are alright (Yes they are) because
A E Bodily functions give me Life. (Yes they do)
D E F#m D Some I'll let you see, some I'll try to hide.
Bm C#m A D Most are a mystery 'cause they happen deep inside. Oh,
Bm C#m A bodily functions are alright.
A E A The first function that gave life to me was my
A D ma and pa rolling 'neath the sheets.
Bm C#m F#m D Sex may be a blast and quite often way too fast. But
Bm E A lucky me this time I was conceived.
A E A 9 months past and countless functions formed my
A D body from a fetus 'til I was born. I
Bm C#m F#m D belched out a burp and shat out a turd and
Bm C#m A cried out loud when they cut the cord.
A E A Somethings I learned from the start. Like in
A D public it's impolite to fart but my
Bm C#m F#m D body does not care, it will fart anywhere 'cuz if you
Bm C#m A hold it in the gas will burn your heart.
A E A It used to be a compliment to burp. The
A D louder the better, so I've heard. It was
Bm C#m F#m D part of the deal after eating a tasty meal. Your
Bm C#m A body needs to ease the gaseous word.
A E A Next, of course, comes the inevitable: the
A D excrement processed in your bowels.
Bm C#m F#m D 1 and 2 equals pee and poo. You
Bm C#m A can't escape this when your tummy's full.
A E A Puberty may be the strangest time.
A D Growing pains and pubes and feeling fine when you
Bm C#m F#m D touch yourself because it feels swell.
Bm C#m A Don't feel guilty ‘cause this ain't no crime.
A E A Embarrassment can often make you blush. You can
A D also feel it when you've got a crush. When you
Bm C#m F#m D don't know where to start with the one who's got your heart. When you
Bm C#m A see her smiling nothing beats this rush.
A E A The body is an awesome thing. It
A D breaths and beats and sweats and even sees. It
Bm C#m F#m D lets you be alive to enjoy this crazy jive. So
Bm C#m A let's give thanks as we sing:
Bm C#m A D Some might disagree, but that's alright with me 'cuz
Bm E A bodily functions give me life.
