Lyrics to Legalize Nudity
By Tohm Lev

Mother nature, doesn't like clothes
but society likes to impose
They want some curtains on all yr windows
I want the freedom to over expose!

Some narrowminded people like to be prudes
But nudity is natural --  it's not lewd!

LEEEEEEGALIZE NUDITY
Set your body free
LEEEEEEEGALIZE NUDITY
Break the chains of slavery
(In the name of liberty )

I'm here to tell u, there is no shame
Beware of anyone who tries to place blame
Nudity is not a sin as some people claim
This prude attitude is, totally lame!

If God didn't want us to be nude
Why were we born in our birthday suit?

LEEEEGALIZE NUDITY
Set your body free
LEEEGALIZE NUDITY
In this land of liberty.
(In the name of liberty )
