 Become A Better Singer In Only 30 Days, With Easy Video Lessons!

I got a feeling
That you could be feeling
A whole lot better then you feel today
You say you got a problem
Well that's 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 you're 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 lose
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 flick
It's our nifty little Mormon trick
Turn it off 
Turn
It
Off

My sister was a dancer, but she got cancer
The doctor said she still had two months more
I thought she had time, so I got in line
For the new iPhone 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 adieu
The fear I might get cancer too 

When I was in fifth grade
I had a friend, Steve Blade (ooh, Steve Blade)
He and I were close as two friends could be (we could be close)
One thing led to another
And soon I would discover (wow)
I was having really strange feelings for Steve 
I thought about us, on a deserted island (we're all alone)
We'd swim naked in the sea
And then he'd try and 
Woah, turn it off
Like a light switch 
There it's gone (good for you)
My hetero side just won
I'm all better now
Boys should be with girls
That's heavenly father's plan
So if you ever feel you'd rather be with a man
Turn it off 

Well, Elder McKinley, I think it's okay that you're having gay thoughts 
Just so long as you never act upon them

No, 'cause then you're just keeping it down 
Like a dimmer switch on low (on low)
Thinking nobody needs to know (uh oh)

But that's not true 

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
Turn it off

Turn it off

Now, how do you feel?

The same

Then you've only got yourself to blame
You didn't pretend hard enough
Imagine that your brain is made of tiny boxes
And find the box that's gay and crush it
Okay?

No, no, I'm not having gay thoughts

Alright, it worked

Yay
Turn it off, turn it off
Turn it off, turn it off
Turn it off, turn it off
Like a light switch just go click (click click)
What a cool little Mormon trick (trick trick)
We do it all the time

When you're feeling certain feelings 
That just don't seem right (don't seem right)
Treat those pesky feelings like a reading light (a reading light)
Turn it off (like a light switch on a cord)
Now he isn't gay anymore

Turn it, turn it, turn it, turn it
Turn it, turn it, turn it, turn it
Turn it

Turn it off
