The "A" Word

from by Becca Cadalzo

lyrics

My baby loves me, but he told me to behave
I said, “I’m not quite sure what you even mean”
“My parents love you, but please don’t say too much”
“What are you even talking about?”

He said, “Honey, don’t use the “A” word in public…”

I said, “Abortion”
I had one of those
Slip me back under
And take it all out
I said, “Abortion”
I’m not gonna hide
The fact I supposedly “ruined my life”
I said, “abortion…”
I said, “abortion,”
I’m not ashamed

I’m a good girl,
Don’t get in trouble
Sometimes I’m immature, this isn’t for attention
This is my body,
Don’t try to shame me
I hear your whispers, and I’m truly not embarrassed
Shout out to my dad, for giving me his health benefits
I’m only short twenty dollars now

Sure, my recovery was rough
But now I feel better than ever

I said, “Abortion”
I had one of those
Slip me back under
And take it all out
I said, “Abortion”
I’m not gonna hide
The fact I got naughty and had a surprise
I said, “abortion…”
I said, “abortion,”
I’m not ashamed
