I Sing The Body Electric

Album: Fame (Original Soundtrack) (1980)
  • I sing the body electric
    I celebrate the me and to come
    I toast to my own reunion
    When I become one with the sun

    And I'll look back on Venus
    I'll look back on Mars
    And I'll burn with the fire
    Of ten million stars
    And in time and in time
    We will all be stars

    I sing the body electric
    I glory in the glow of rebirth
    Creating my own tomorrow
    When I shall embody the Earth

    And I'll serenade Venus
    I'll serenade Mars
    And I'll burn with the fire
    Of ten million stars
    And in time and in time
    We will all be stars

    Yeah, ooh, yeah!
    Yeah, yeah!

    We are the emperors now
    And we are Czars
    And in time and in time
    We will all be stars!

    I sing the body electric
    I celebrate the me and to come
    I toast to my own reunion
    (my own reunion)
    When I become one with the sun

    And I'll look back on Venus
    I'll look back on Mars
    And I'll burn with the fire
    Of ten million stars
    And in time and in time
    (And in time and in time)
    We will all be stars!
