Body safety song: My Body Is My Body

My body is my body,
And it belongs to me.
 
No-one can touch it
No-one but me!
[Point to self]
 
And if they try,
I’m going to yell, “Stop!”
[Hand comes out to show ‘stop’]
 
And run, run, run
As fast as I can,
And yell and tell
Again and again.
[Running motion with arms]
