Is It My Body (Outtake)

What have I got
That makes you want to love me
Is it my body
Or something I might be
Or someone in inside me

You better tell me
Tell me
It's really up to you
Have you got the time to find out
Who I really am

Well, what does it take
To get inside of your mine
Give me a break
And take a chance for the very first time

You better tell me
Tell me
It's really up to you (really up to you)
Have you got the time to find out
Who I really am

You better tell me
Tell me
It's really up to you (really up to you)
Have you got the time to find out
Who I really am

Where am I going
What will I see
There a wind that's blowing
Down under me
Well I, I don't know all the reasons
And I can not tell
But there's just one way to heaven
And about a thousand ways hell
We'll I'm, I'm going to the graveyard
I'm gonna dig up some bones
And they might be yours
And they might just be me mine
Oh no no no no no no, well yeah
[My very own]

You better tell me
Tell me
It's really up to you
Have you got the time to find out
Who I really am

Song Information

This outtake of Is It My Body is the version the band would often performed live. The band began playing it during 1970, a year before the Love It To Death album was even released, right up through the School's Out tour of 1972. Often referred to by bootleggers and fans as "My Very Own" due to the middle section which includes a couple verses with some very necrophiliac overtones. In this studio outtake version it's unlikely that alice sings the lyric "my very own", but it's hard to hear what he's singing. I've positioned the lyric in brackets to pinpoints where this line would fall in the live version. Unfortunately currently unavailable officially. This version of Is It My Body runs approximately 7 minutes and can be found on numerous live recordings from 1970-1972, as well as the Love It To Death rehearsal bootlegs.
