about

"Take Back Your Beaver" is body-positive cabaret with a groove, calling on us to save an endangered species … beavers! Once upon a time in my early 20s I was actually rejected by someone for having a beaver. So I wrote a song about it urging folks of all stripes to take back their beavers! In other words, take back your power! Now I’m not saying you have to grow a big ole beaver. No, I just wanna broaden the definition of what is deemed beautiful down there … and in general. This is a body positive song/video urging folks to be in their bodies however they choose to be and want to be … and not conform to someone else’s dictates. Take back your beaver! Take back your power!

"Take Back Your Beaver" has been a huge hit at Candace's live cabaret shows. Following the success of her first music video "Not My City Anymore", Candace reassembled many of the same cast and crew to shoot an over-the-top music video for "Take Back Your Beaver" now on YouTube. Please spread the video and help us incite the beaver revolution! Oh and .... teeshirts are available as well on Candace's website!

lyrics

TAKE BACK YOUR BEAVER

My sister says I gotta get rid of this thing ... she's
Rolling up in her bikini now, gonna steal me for a swim
What's wrong with you? They're gonna run from you!
You just don't stand a chance
I won't be seen with the likes of you and the monster in your pants

I'm not some hairless wonder
I'm not a little girl

Take back your beaver
Don't ever leave her
Stand by your beaver
Cause tomorrow belongs to her

I'm seeing someone new, god help me, what should I do?
I fluctuate, I ro-sham-bo, gonna try me something new
With urban sprawl, au natural, it's on, I'm feeling free
We only get so far, says he just can't hang
Or see the forest for the trees

I'm not some hairless wonder
I'm not a little girl

Take back your beaver
Don't ever leave her
Stand by your beaver
Cause tomorrow belongs to her

My beaver's out to China, France and Italy
It's reaching for the heavens, gonna cross the seven seas
It's bushy, wooly, curly and did I mention big?
My beaver's out to China, it's not a landing strip.

Take back your beaver
Don't ever leave her
Stand by your beaver
Cause tomorrow belongs to her
