Who Says...?

The following are lyrics to a song I heard in my diet-free living class tonight. I could not find a link for the actual song. Song inspired by the book When Women Stop Hating Their Bodies by Carol Munter and Jane Hirschmann.

Who Says...?

WHO SAYS my thighs gotta be thin, who says?
Who says my thighs gotta be thing, who says?
My thighs & hips are strong, you see, they carry all the rest of me
Who says my thighs gotta be thin, who says?

WHO SAYS my butt better be small, who says?
Who says my butt better be small, who says?
My butt supports me when I sit, without it none of my pants would fit
Who says my butt better be small, who says?

WHO SAYS my belly can't be round, who says?
Who says my belly can't be round, who says?
My belly is where I rest my hands, it holds the best of my female glands
Who says my belly can't be round, who says?

WHO SAYS my chin can't double, who says?
Who says my chin can't double, who says?
If one chin's a necessity, then why not two, or even three?
Who says my chin can't double, who says?

WHO SAYS my breasts ain't OK, who says?
Who says my breasts ain't OK, who says?
Breasts are where I laid my head & slept so sweet, 'n even got fed
Who says my breasts ain't OK, who says?

WHO SAYS stay young forever, who says?
Who says stay young forever, who says?
My wrinkles are a legacy, a roadmap of my herstory
Who says stay young forever, who says?

WHO SAYS that thin is better, who says?
Who says that thin is better, who says?
In this big complex universe where everyone is so diverse,
Demanding thin is so perverse , so, who says?

WHO SAYS my body is wrong, oh, who says?
Who says my body is wrong, oh, who says?
My cellulite is bad, my waist is too thick
And who I am so contradict...............NO!
I'm just fine it's the culture that's sick, oh, I says!
