(McLean)I'm building my bodyI'm happy when I'm building my bodyI'm tired of fighting, let's make friendsI'm tired of burning both endsThat's why I'm building my bodyIt hurts me but I'm building my bodyAnd I know what the pain is worthI know I feel the pain of birthI'm pushin' upAnd gettin' down with my bodyThere's no-one else around with my bodyOne look says I'm a stone disgraceDon't kick no sand in my faceBecause I'm building my body strongI'm watching what I eatAnd I'm sorting out right from wrongHey, not a lot of meatAnd I know that it won't be longBefore I gotta quit smokingBecause I'm building my bodyI'm peaceful when I'm building my bodyI'm sweating out mistakes I've madeI'm getting back the dues I've paidI'm doing moreAnd getting sore with my bodyBut I'm gaining a rapport with my bodyAnd this seems like the perfect timeThey say I'm in my primeThat's why I'm building my body strongI'm thinking at the tableAnd I'm sorting out right from wrongI'm reading every labelAnd I know that it won't be longBefore I gotta quit smoking'Cause I'm building my bodyThere's someone else inside of my bodyHe's waiting to be born again
