If My Body

I came into this world in a body that's fine. 
In some ways it's ever and totally mine. 
And yet it's on loan: only mine for a time. 
Only I can take care so it lasts through this rhyme... 

	If I thought of my body as a Mack truck 
	when she was on empty I'd surely fill up! 
	I'd use only premium never the cheap stuff! 
	If my body, my body I thought of as a Mack truck! 
		I thought of as a Mack truck!
 
	If my body I saw her as a shiny little sports car 
	I would make sure she'd always shine as a bright star! 
	I'd wash her and wax her and I'd buff out each mar! 
	If my body, I thought of her a shiny little sports car! 
		A shiny little sports car!

	If I thought of my body as a well oiled machine ...
	I know I'd keep her joints and ligaments so pristine! 
	I'd take her for her tuneups and those checkups routine! 
	So she would run as good as new! 
	If my body, I thought of her a well oiled machine!
		A well oiled machine!

	If my body I thought she was a Winnebago RV
	I'd expect her insides to be pure and clean! 
	I'd keep her free of clutter so I'd get around with ease.
	Vacations would be fun and free! 
	If my body, I thought of her a Winnebago RV!
		A Winnebago RV! 
			A well oiled machine! 
				A shiny little sports car! 
					I thought of her a Mack Truck!

But my body's a blessing of human design. 
She houses my Spirit the Sacred Divine! 
I must tend to her gently, be loving and kind. 
So she is a clear channel and lasts a long time.
