Book Of Mormon Lyrics Turn It Off


Original Broadway Production (2011)The Book of Mormon: the Musical - Turn It Off Lyrics// ELDER MCKINLEY: I got a feeling, That you could be feeling, A whole lot better then you feel today You say you got a problem, well thats no problem, It's super easy not to feel that way! When you start to get confused because of thoughts in your head, Don't feel those feelings! Hold them in instead Turn it off, like a light switch just go click! It's a cool little Mormon trick! We do it all the time When your feeling certain feels that just don't feel right Treat those pesky feelings like a reading light and turn em off, Like a light switch just go bap! Really whats so hard about that? Turn it off! (Turn it off!) When I was young my dad, Would treat my mom real bad, every time the Utah Jazz would loose. He'd start a' drinking, and I'd start a thinking, How am I gonna keep my mom from getting abused? I'd see her all scared and my soul was dying, My dad would say to me, Now don't you dare start crying. Turn it off, (Like a light switch just go click!) (It\'s our nifty little Mormon trick!) Turn it off! (Turn. It. Off!) My Sister was a dancer, but she got cancer, My doctor said she still had two months more I thought she had time, so I got in line for the new I-phone at the apple store. She lay there dying with my father and mother Her very last words were "where is my brother?" (Turn it off!) Yeah! (Bid those sad feelings a adieu!) The fear I might get cancer too, When I was in fifth grade, I had a friend Steve Blade, He and I were close as two friend could be One thing led to another, and soon I would discover, I was having really strange feelings for Steve I thought about us, on a deserted Island We'd swim naked in the sea, and then he'd try and... WOAH! Turn if off, like a light switch, there its gone! (Good for you!) My hetero side just won! I'm all better now, Boys should be with girls thats heavenly fathers plan So if you ever feel you rather be with a man, Turn it off. ELDER PRICE: Well Elder McKinley, I think its ok that your having gay thoughts, just so long as you never act on them. ELDER MCKINLEY:No, because then your just keeping it down, Like a dimmer switch on low, (On low!) Thinking nobody needs to know! (Uh oh!) ELDER PRICE:But that's not true! ELDER MCKINLEY: Being gay is bad, but lying is worse, So just realize you have a curable curse, And turn it off! (Turn it off, turn it off!) (Dance) Turn it off! Now how do you feel! ELDER PRICE: The same ELDER MCKINLEY: Then you only got yourself to blame, You didn't pretend hard enough, Imagine that your brain is made of tiny boxes, and find the box thats gay and CRUSH IT! Ok? ELDER PRICE:No, no, -I'm- not having gay thoughts ELDER CUNNINGHAM: Alright! It worked! (Yay!) (Turn it off!) (Turn it off, Turn it off!) (Turn it off, turn it off like a light switch just go click click! What a cool little Mormon Trick! Trick trick! We do it all the time!) ELDER MCKINLEY: When your feeling certain feelings that just dont seem right! Treat those pesky feelings like a reading light! Turn it off! (Like a light switch, shut it off!) (Now he isn't gay anymore!) (Turn it, turn it, turn it, turn it...!) (Turn it, turn it, turn it, turn it...!) (Turn it...) ELDER MCKINLEY: Turn it off![Thanks to Leon Tuthill for lyrics]




book of mormon lyrics turn it off



The Book of Mormon is a musical comedy with music, lyrics, and book by Trey Parker, Robert Lopez, and Matt Stone. First staged in 2011, the play is a satirical examination of the beliefs and practices of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. The musical ultimately endorses the positive power of love and service, according to David Brooks of The New York Times.[1] Parker and Stone were best known for creating the animated comedy South Park; Lopez had co-written the music for the musical Avenue Q.


The Book of Mormon has book, music and lyrics by Parker, Stone and Lopez, all of whom earned Tony Award nominations for Best Original Score and Best Book. Parker co-directs with Tony Award nominee Casey Nicholaw (The Drowsy Chaperone, Spamalot), who also choreographs. The musical opened to critical raves March 24.


"COME OUT as a wanderer. Come out as a questioner. One day it won't matter. But it still does." The author of this exhortation is Tyler Glenn, the lead singer of the alt-rock band Neon Trees, who came out in Rolling Stone earlier this year. Glenn's confession coincided with the release of the band's third studio album. Pop Psychology, a title reportedly inspired by the therapy he sought after a minor meltdown back in 2012 and the cancellation of some tour dates. He went on, in a Facebook post, to urge his fans: "Come out as you. That's all I really can say. That's what I'd say to me at 21, the scared return Mormon missionary who knew this part of himself but loved God too. You can do both. Don't let anyone tell you [otherwise]. All my love and hope, and for now, back to the music." 076b4e4f54
