How can I put a paragraph inside the body element?

Trying to put a paragraph in between the <body></body> element.

<!DOCTYPE html>
  <p><body>My first paragraph!</body></p>

Hi Jamie,

You are basically there!

Try simplifying your code and only include the necessary parts. Here, you don't need a paragraph within the head tag. Also, once you write the code for the body tag, you don't have to repeat that code. So your code should look something like this:

<! DOCTYPE html>

    <p>My first paragraph!</p>  



Hey, thank you so much. It seem so obvious once you broke it down for me.
