She was a girl from Birmingham
She just had an abortion
She was a case of insanity
Her name was Pauline she lived in a tree
She was a no one who killed her baby
She sent her letters from the country
She was an animal
She was a bloody disgrace

Body, I'm not an animal
Body, I'm not an animal

Dragged on a table in a factory
Illegitimate place to be
In a packet in a lavatory
Die little baby screaming fucking bloody mess
It's not an animal
It's an abortion

Body, I'm not animal mummy
I'm not an abortion
Throbbing squirm, gurgling bloody mess
I'm not a discharge,
I'm not a loss in protein
I'm not a throbbing squirm

Fuck this and fuck that
Fuck it all and fuck the fucking brat
She don't want a baby that looks like that
I don't wanna baby that looks like that

Body, I'm not an animal
Body, I'm not an abortion
Body, I'm not an animal
An animal
I'm not an animal
I'm not an abortion

Mummy! Ugh!
