Can’t Stop the Reading

Read-A-Thon is back at YISS! Our elementary students celebrate reading during February and March. The theme this year is Camp Out with a Good Book.

David helped with the music video again this year. He rewrote the words to Justin Timberlake’s “Can’t Stop the Feeling” and changed it to “Can’t Stop the Reading.” We work with so many talented people! From singing to sound mixing, video editing, and dancing… I love how the final product showcases the creativity and joy of our school!

Watch it on Facebook, Vimeo, or below:

This year, each grade level team was featured reading together. (The third grade teachers at the pool were my favorite!) This is David with his fifth grade team (and yes, he’s surfing on his friend Ross in the river):

Here are the lyrics:

I got this feeling inside my bones
What adventures will this new book take me on?
All through Seoul city, all through my home
I can’t put down this book, I’m in the reading zone

Cuz I got that new book in my pocket
It’s got stories, oh so sweet
When I read it, it’s exciting, I can’t stop, ooh
I can’t take my eyes up off it, reading so phenomenally
I’ve got more books on the docket, so I don’t stop

We’re reading tonight and everyone knows
Whether it’s fiction, drama, or prose
When you read, well, you already know
We just imagine, just imagine, just imagine

Camp out with a new book, this is your chance, chance, chance, feel
This one’s a good book for you, so just glance, glance, glance, come on
Reading’s so exciting, so let’s just dance, dance, dance
Everybody’s reading, so keep dancing

I can’t stop the reading
So just dance, dance, dance
I can’t stop the reading
So just dance, dance, dance, come on

Ooh, there’s something wonderful
I read the Good Book (Scripture) and it helps me carry on
In every season, it leads my soul
It shows me Jesus Christ, who came to make me whole

Cause I got that Good Book in my pocket
Gotta get up off of my feet
I’ll tell everyone about it and I won’t stop, ooh
I can’t take my eyes up off it, living so phenomenally
It’s His guidebook, He designed it, so don’t stop

We’ll shine our light, so everyone knows
He came and died and in three days he rose
He’ll come again and will call up his own
So just imagine, just imagine, just imagine

His good plan offers you a second chance, chance, chance
The Good book explains it all to you
So you glance, glance, glance, come on
Everything He gives will make you
dance, dance, dance
Jesus will be coming soon, so keep dancing

I can’t stop the reading
So just dance, dance, dance
I can’t stop the reading
So just dance, dance, dance
I can’t stop the reading
So just dance, dance, dance
I can’t stop the reading
So keep dancing, come on

I can’t stop the, I can’t stop the
I can’t stop the, I can’t stop the
I can’t stop the reading

Camp out with a new book, this is your chance, chance, chance, feel
This one’s a good book for you, so just glance, glance, glance, come on
Reading’s so exciting, so let’s just dance, dance, dance
Everybody’s reading, so keep dancing

I can’t stop the reading
So just dance, dance, dance
I can’t stop the reading
So just dance, dance, dance
I can’t stop the reading
So just dance, dance, dance
I can’t stop the reading
So keep dancing, come on

Everybody sing
(I can’t stop the reading)
Gotta share it with somebody
(I can’t stop the reading)
Gotta share it with somebody
(I can’t stop the feeling)
I think reading’s my new hobby
(I can’t stop the feeling)
Gotta share it with somebody
Break it down
Gotta share it with somebody
Can’t stop the feeling
Gotta share it with somebody, come on
