“There’s too much going on, stayin’ up until the dawn”

The bedtime struggle is real, because everyone knows all the fun stuff happens after we’re asleep. The solution? Stay awake. And the best way to stay awake is to keep moving, and the best way to keep moving is to get up and DANCE!!

Influences: Early ‘80’s Prince, the bedtime struggle

Listen For: analog synthesizers, falsetto vocal harmonies, nod to Prince’s “Let’s Go Crazy” intro sermon

lyrics

CHORUS
Hey Mr DJ they're gettin' out my PJs and trying to find a sleepy time song
So can you play me somethin’ groovin’ to keep my body movin’ or I won't be awake for too long
Hey Mr DJ they're gettin' out my PJs and trying to find a sleepy time song
So can you play me somethin’ groovin’ to keep my body movin’ or I won't be awake for too long

Stand up, turn around
Jump up high now touch the ground
Stand up, turn around
Jump up high now touch the ground

I've got to stay awake, no matter what it takes
I've got to stay awake, no matter what it takes

Slide left shuffle right
Shake and shimmy through the night
Slide left shuffle right
Shake and shimmy through the night

There's too much going on, stayin' up until the dawn
There's too much going on, stayin' up until the dawn

Whew,
All this, movin’ around is getting me, worn out
I’m gonna need to.. sit down here and, catch my breath
Maybe I’ll just.. lean my head back and…just..close my...eyes...
WAIT A MINUTE

CHORUS
Hey Mr DJ they're gettin' out my PJs and trying to find a sleepy time song
So can you play me somethin’ groovin’ to keep my body movin’ or I won't be awake for too long

Run up and down the hall
Keep on bouncin' off the walls
Run up and down the hall
Keep on bouncin' off the walls

I'm ninja quick tonight, so fast I'm outta sight
I'm ninja quick tonight, so fast I'm outta sight

Roll around upon the floor
Play a rhythm on the door
Roll around upon the floor
Play a rhythm on the door

It's really not that late, And I'm still feeling great
It's really not that late, And I'm still feeling great

Whew,
My heart is beating really fast from all this.. running and jumping
I'm gonna need to, sit on my bed and, just rest for a bit
Maybe I’ll just, go ahead and, lie down and I can...zzzzzz
WAIT A MINUTE!

CHORUS
Hey Mr DJ they're gettin' out my PJs and trying to find a sleepy time song
So can you play me somethin’ groovin’ to keep my body movin’ or I won't be awake for too long

Good people..
We're gathered here..to talk about the wooorld beyond bedtime...
A fantastic place...where grown ups stay up late..jumping on the beeed.. while eating cake and ice cream….
Sounds pretty amazing doesn't it?
Well let me tell you friends.. you can go there too..
All you gotta do.. is stay awake….
And the best way to stay awake.. is to keep movin’...
And the best way to keep movin’... is to get up and……..DANCE!!

Everybody…..Dance

Show me how you…..Dance

Everybody….Dance

Come on and……….Dance
(Get up, get down, get your body movin’ all around)
Show me how you……….Dance
(Get up, get down, get your body movin’ all around)
Everybody….……….Dance
(Get up, get down, get your body movin’ all around)
Come on and……….Dance
(Get up, get down, get your body movin’ all around)

CHORUS
Hey Mr DJ they're gettin' out my PJs and trying to find a sleepy time song
So can you play me somethin’ groovin’ to keep my body movin’ or I won't be awake for too long
Hey Mr DJ they're gettin' out my PJs and trying to find a sleepy time song
So can you play me somethin’ groovin’ to keep my body movin’ or I won't be awake for too long
Hey Mr DJ they're gettin' out my PJs and trying to find a sleepy time song
(Get up, get down, get your body movin’ all around, Get up, get down, get your body movin’ all around)
So can you play me somethin’ groovin’ to keep my body movin’ or I won't be awake for too long
(Get up, get down, get your body movin’ all around, Get up, get down, get your body movin’ all around)
