I got a feelin'
That you could be feelin'
A whole lot better than 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 feelings that just don't seem right
Treat those pesky feelings like a reading light

And turn 'em off
Light a light switch
Just go back
Really, what's so hard about that
Turn it off
Turn it off

When I was young my dad
Would treat my mom real bad
Everytime the Utah Jazz would lose
He'd start a drinkin'
And I'd start a thinkin'
How'm I gonna keep my mom from getting abused

I'd see her all scared and my soul was dyin'
My dad would say to me, "Now don't you dare start cryin'"

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 that I might get cancer, too

When I was in fifth grade
I had a friend, Steve Glade
He and I were close as two friends 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 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
Thinking nobody needs to know
But that's not true
Being gay is bad but lyin' is worse
So just realize you have a curable curse
And 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!

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 don't seem right
Treat those pesky feelings like a reading light

Turn it off
Like a light switch on a cord
Now he's isn't gay any...

Turn it
Turn it
Turn it off
