"Your Body Is a Wonderland" is the title of a song written and recorded by John Mayer. It was released in October 2002 as the second single from his first album, 2001's Room for Squares. Its commercial success was greater than Mayer's prior single, "No Such Thing."
Mayer once said during his "As/Is" tour, that the song was about "girly parts", but this was later denied. During his "VH1 Storytellers" performance, Mayer stated that he wrote the song about his first girlfriend at age 14. The song was actually named "Strawberry Wonderland" but was later changed by Mayer.
There has been speculation that Mayer wrote the song about actress Jennifer Love Hewitt, whom he dated in 2002, but she denied it. Hewitt told Entertainment Weekly, "My body is far from a wonderland. My body is more like a pawnshop. There's a lot of interesting things put together, and if you look closely you'd probably be excited, but at first glance, not so much". According to the liner notes, a toy piano is used as an instrument in the song.
