Choose Life: Defending Our Most Precious and Vulnerable Gifts

choose

(To the tune of “It’s My Party and I’ll Cry If I Want To” by Lesley Gore)

Nobody knows where my boyfriend has gone

My friends all left the same time

Why were they scowling at me

When they’re supposed to be kind?

 

It’s my body, and I’ll choose if I want to

Choose if I want to

Choose if I want to

You would choose too if it happened to you

 

Texting my girlfriends and tweeting all night

Lets me escape for a while

Until my boyfriend comes back

I’ve got no reason to smile

 

It’s my body, and I’ll choose it if I want to

Choose if I want to

Choose if I want to

You would choose too if it happened to you

 

Finally my boyfriend just walked through the door

Begging me for a new start

But my baby’s already gone

Oh, God, You’re changing my heart

 

It was my baby, and I’ll cry if I want to

Cry if I want to

Cry if I want to

You will cry too if it happens to you
