About Sexual Revolution

"Sexual Revolution" is the second and final single from Macy Gray's second studio album, The Id (2001). In the United Kingdom, "Sexual Revolution" became Gray's first single since her debut, "Do Something", to miss the top forty. The single had limited success in the United States as well, missing both the Billboard Hot 100 and Hot R&B/Hip-Hop Songs charts. It did manage to peak at number four, however, on the Hot Dance Club Play chart. "Sexual Revolution" was released on two CD formats in the UK and contained remixes by Fatboy Slim and Miguel Migs. The single also contained Gray's version of the Christmas classic, "Winter Wonderland".

Everybody shake it 
Time to be free amongst yourselves 
Your mama told you to be discreet 
And keep your freak to yourself 
But your mama lied to you all this time 
She knows as well as you and I 
You've got to express what is taboo in you 
And share your freak with the rest of us 
Cause it's a beautiful thang 
A beautiful thang
A beautiful thang

This is my sexual revolution 
Sexual revolution 
Sexual revolution 
Sexual revolution 

Everybody shake it 
Time to be free amongst yourselves 
Your mama told you to be discreet 
And keep your freak to yourself 
But your mama lied to you all this time 
She knows as well as you and I 
You've got to express what is taboo in you 
And share your freak with the rest of us 
Cause it's a beautiful thang 

This is my sexual revolution 
Sexual revolution 
Sexual revolution 
Sexual revolution 

Everybody break it 
Every rule, every constriction 
My papa told me to be home by now 
But my party has just begun 
Maybe he'll understand 
That I got to be 
To be the freak that god made me 
So many thangs I want to try 
Got to do them before I die 

This is my sexual revolution 
Sexual revolution 
Sexual revolution 
Sexual revolution 

I'm so fuckin' beautiful 
Especially when I take my clothes off 
I'm so fuckin' beautiful 
Especially when I take my clothes off 

This is my sexual revolution 
Sexual revolution 
Sexual revolution 
Sexual revolution 

It's sexual
It's sexual
It's what?
It's sexual
It's what?
It's sexual
Revolution!
