    Is there any way to get a download of just the beat and acoustics without the singing??? We would like to use this for our 7 habits meeting at school with our students singing along.

      Hi Patricia!

      We’d love to share the lyrics with you:

      Who’s the boss?
      I’m the boss!
      Who’s the boss?
      I’m the boss!
      Of what?
      My body!
      Of what? What?
      My body!

      I knew a boy who played a little too rough,
      thought he was so tough,
      He would push and shove
      This kid stood a little too close
      Steppin’ on toes
      Gettin’ nose to nose.
      Then one day I stood up, … said,
      “I’m tired of all your rough stuff
      Keep your hands to yourself, I’ve had enough
      I’m taking control of me.”

      Uh huh…  Uh huh…

      I may be young (I may be young)
      I may be small (I may be small)
      But it’s my body, I’m in charge of it all. (of it all)
      I’m the boss (I’m the boss)
      of my body (of my body)
      I hold the key to the safety of me.
      (I hold the key to the safety of me.)

      I knew a girl with daredevil friends
      venturin’
      past where the sidewalk ends.

      They made a case for a bicycle race
      through a dangerous place
      where they wouldn’t be safe.

      Then she got that (uh-oh, uh-oh) feelin’
      What’d she do with her (uh-oh, uh-oh) feelin’?
      She left the scene to reconvene, sayin’
      “I gotta protect me. I gotta protect me.”  

      Uh huh…  Uh huh…

      I may be young (I may be young)
      I may be small (I may be small)
      But it’s my body, I’m in charge of it all (of it all)
      I’m the boss (I’m the boss)
      of my body (of my body)
      I hold the key to the safety of me
      (I hold the key to the safety of me)

      I hereby decree
      I’m the president of me
      I’m my own referee
      My own personal MC
      Top billing on the marquee
      Commander-in-chief
      The Grand Poobah, Big Cheese
      I’m the boss of my body

      Who’s the boss?
      I’m the boss!
      Who’s the boss?
      I’m the boss!
      Of what?
      My body!
      Of what? What?
      My body!
      Yeah.

      Stay Safe.
