Julian Lennon"Originally, I just had that line (Want Your Body)...that was the only line I had for the whole song and I didn't know what I was going to do because it could've gone anywhere from there and I thought 'I better be fair' so 'I Want Your Mind' came up, so I thought, 'That's fair, that's fair, that's nice,' so it just went on from there and I didn't...I really wasn't looking for another name. 'Want Your Body' sounded so nice because after you listen to the song it sounds OK but when you first, if you haven't listened to it yet, you think, 'Well, this is smut, dirt', things like that, so its a surprise."

'...originally I didn't have the harmonies and didn't want it because I felt the harmonies might break it off a bit more, might not make it so strong, but I had a friend around I will say thank you to-Robin Beck-she's a singer. I'd gone over them before in my head but thought it would take away too much and she started singing the same ones I'd come up with, but I never heard anybody else because I never put it on tape...'Actually, that does sound real nice' so I went in the studio the next morning and put the idea down...."
-Julian Lennon on "Want Your Body"

The Video

"Want Your Body" was a very dreamy video.  It was mostly black and white in an attic setting with an old upside down bike and spokes on the floor, a piano, sheets, assorted boxes and Julian's black poodle "Shy" was in the video. Captures will be coming...

The Lyrics

Want your body
Want your mind
Live together
Both unwind
Love is what we need to say
Live together anyway

When you say hello
But you mean goodbye
When you're lying awake
Go ahead and cry
When you know in your heart
That they'll tear us apart
I love you

Want your body
Want your mind
Why are people so unkind
Never listen to what they say
Turn your head and look away

When you say hello
But you mean goodbye
When you're lying awake
Go ahead and cry
When your closin' the door
Don't you look back for more
I love you
Oo, oo, ah. Oo do do do, do do do, do, oo.

Want your body
Want your mind
Live in sin
Let's both entwine
Love is what we need to say
Live together anyway

When you say hello
But you mean goodbye
When you're lying awake
Go ahead and cry
When your closing the door
Don't you look back for more
I love you
