"Time Warp" as written by and Richard O'brien....
It's astounding
Time is fleeting
Madness...takes its toll
But Listen Closely
Not for very much longer
I've got to...keep control

I remember don' the time warp
Drinking those moments when
The blackness would hit me,
And the void would be calling

Let's do the time warp again
Let's do the time warp again

It's just a jump to the left
And then a step to the right
With your hands on your hips
You bring your knees in tight
But it's the pelvic thrust,
That really drives you insane

Let's do the time warp again
Let's do the time warp again

It's so dreamy
Oh fantasy free me
So you can't see me
No, not at all
In another dimension
With voyeristic intention
Well secluded, I see all

With a bit of a mind flip
You're into the time slip
And nothing, can ever be the same
You're spaced out on sensation
Like you're under sedation

Let's do the time warp again
Let's do the time warp again

Well I was walking down the street
Just a having a think
When a snake of a guy gave me an evil wink
He shook-a me up, he took me by surprise
He had a pick up truck and the devil's eyes
He stared at me and I felt a change
Time meant nothing, never would again

Let's do the time warp again
Let's do the time warp again

It's just a jump to the left
And then a step to the right
With your hands on your hips
You bring your knees in tight
But it's the pelvic thrust,
That really drives you insane

Let's do the time warp again
Let's do the time warp again

    General CommentI love the Rocky Horror Picture Show!!! My mother got me hooked on it when I was like 7 but the movie itself has been running for 25 years! It's a cult classic!!! If I was alive back then, I would have tried out for the movie. I wouldn't mind the fishnet stockings. Sh*t! When this movie was playing guys and girls acted out the entire movie. Now that's power!

    General CommentDoes anyone else believe this song is about drinking??

    Drinking those moments when
    The blackness would hit me,
    And the void would be calling
