Sister Act the Musical - Sunday Morning Fever Lyrics
[Welcome back, faithful followers old and new!
And now to raise the temperature even higher,
we have a brand new hymn by our very own
Queen of Angels - or should I say
Disco Queen of Angels - choir! Hit it, sisters!]
Spread the news! It's time to rock the pews!
We've got the sunday morning fever!
It's a sound that turns your soul around until it makes you a believer.
Every priest, every deacon,
everyone who feels the beat starts freakin'.
Catch the bug! Ride the groove!
Boogie 'til you feel your spirit move!
Come and get that sunday morning fever. Give the Lord a try!
[Queen of Angels is not your grandma's church anymore.
God help your grandmother if it were.]
Everything that woman does infects us more and more.
Things were bad the way it was, but Lord, you're killing us with the cure!
[Welcome back, o multitudes! Our humble sanctuary overflows with your fabulous
devotion! So, get down, get down, get down
on your knees, and show the Lord how deep is your love.]
Girls and boys, come make a joyful noise and do the sunday morning hustle!
Bump that thing in praise of Christ the king until you pull your pelvic muscle!
Get confessed! Get anointed!
Then get down like you were double-jointed!
Feel the flow! Dig the scene!
Shake it like you're Mary Magdalene!
Come and let that sunday morning fever! Make your footsies fly!
[“By popular demand, Queen of Angels
Church has expanded to eight mosses per Sunday,
all fuelled by the high octane choir direction of the fabulous sister Mary
Clarence.” Deloris - what part of "hiding out" don't you understand?]
This keeps goin' and crowds keep growin' – the word is gonna spread.
Every mention just brings more attention.
And you won't be so fabulous if you're dead.
Now, put your hands in the air! And wave 'em all around in prayer!
Let your funky behavior show that you and the savior got each other like Sonny and Cher!
A hip, hop. A hippity a hippity a ding dong dippity dee!
I'm a celibate sister, but I'm hot as a blister so hang onto your rosary!
Now I may be a fossil, but my skills are colossal,
and I rock the mig just like an apostle, and I don't stop 'til your doubts go pop.
And I take you over the top!
We got Matt, Mark, (Matt, Mark) Luke and John. (Luke, John)
Those guys are pros, and that ain't no con.
So let's party on 'til the break-break-a-dawn
like a sanctifunkadelic orgasmatron!
Get the vibe, make some noise!
Do the bus stop with the altar boys!
You can bet that sunday morning fever is the reason why!
(Aw - beep beep!)
Dudes and chicks, (beep deep!)
whip out your crucifix, (toot, toot)
and join the sunday celebration! (uh-huh! Join the celebration!)
Genuflect, (toot, toot) Give God his due respect.
Then put your backside in rotation!
(Well, well, well, well)
Raise your hands! (Uh-huh!)
Get them clappin’! (Uh-huh!)
And you’ll see that miracles can happen! (Aw - beep, beep!)
[Sisters, sisters! I bear remarkable news! A miracle has happened!
Bishop Donahue read last week’s newspaper article about our choir…]
[No, no, no… Wait that’s not the news!
Archbishop Narsutis, who colled Cardinal
McCanna, who has invited us to sing this week…]
[Uh uh hum, uh uh hum let me finish! He has invited us to
sing this week for a special visitor... a very special visitor from the Vatican!]
[You mean the Po-ho-ho - the Po-ho-ho -]
[Calm down, sister! You mean the Po-ho-ho -]
[That’s right – can you believe it? The Po-ho-ho himself!]
Praise the Lord! Join the flock!
Party 'til you make the cloister rock!
Won't regret that sunday morning fever –
Kiss those sins goodbye!
Fill the church! Pass the plate!
Everybody transubstantiate come and get that sunday morning fever.
Mass appeal was never so real and can'tcha feel that sunday fever...
Just imagine what the Pope will make of them!
Every sequined booty-shake of them.
Let us pray he isn't too censorial,
and that somehow God's trae glory'll rise. Sunday fiver rise!
Cool it down, ya gotta promise me ya will.
Or you'll blow it, guarantee ya will.
And the odds that Shank will see ya will rise. Sunday fever rise!
Good Lord! Thanks to you!
All this, right in front of our eyes. Sunday fever rise!
Rise! Rise! Rise! Rise!
Rise! Rise! Rise! Rise!
Thank God it's sunday! Sunday fever rise!
