Lyrics

words and music by Rob Biagi ©2003 Rob Biagi (BMI)

I’m gonna skip sleepin’ in and go to church
I’m gonna skip sleepin’ in and go to church
I’m gonna dance all around
Mom & Dad don’t go slow now
‘Cause I skipped sleepin’ in; I’m goin’ to church!

I’m gonna hop outta bed and fill my head
I’m gonna hop outta bed and fill my head
I don’t care if I’ve got “bed-head”
I heard what the Teacher said,
“You gotta hop outta bed and fill your head with the Word of God!”

I gotta pray…’cause God loves my voice
I gotta make…a joyful noise!
I’m gonna praise from my gut
Because you know what?
I’m gonna skip sleepin’ in and go to church!

I’m gonna jump at the chance to tell my friends
I’m gonna jump at the chance to tell my friends
“By the time Kids’ Church is through
You’ll get a chance to be made new
If you skip sleepin’ in and come to church.”

You gotta pray…’cause God loves your voice
You gotta make…a joyful noise!
You oughta praise from your gut
Because I tell you what -
You oughta skip sleepin’ in and go to church

I’m gonna skip sleepin’ in and go to church (sleepy)

I’m gonna skip sleepin’ in and go to church!

"Skip Sleepin' In" is from the kids'-eye view. "The kid" doesn't want to miss Kids' Church [and worship/music time in particular], so - after thinking about all the fun and educational components of Sunday morning, "the kid" turns to waking up his parents and asking them to "not go slow." As always, the motions "lift" this song. The church kids get a chance to skip, jump, hop, and holler out.

MUSICAL STYLE/SOUND: a 60s funk [James Brown]-sounding song with funky beats, a great bass guitar line, swirling organ, and some tasty [Aretha Franklin wannabe] background vocal stabs.

IF YOU’RE TEACHING
- The importance of church [Kids' Church in particular]
- The power of learning the Bible
- Family Togetherness/Dynamics
- Evangelism
- Salvation/The Gospel of Repentance and Faith in Christ

KEY LYRIC: "I don’t care if I’ve got 'bed-head'. I heard what the Teacher said, 'You gotta hop outta bed and fill your head with the Word of God!'"

LITTLE KNOWN FACT: Rob was inspired to write this by Parker W., a kid at his church. Parker didn't want to miss Kids' Worship, which started promptly at 9am every Sunday. He didn't want his parents to go slow and "make him miss" the start of music time, so he learned to make coffee for his parents.
