I'm not a loco with motive to suture myself
I've been a cynic for too many years
Playing doctor and nurse, it can be good for your health
I've seen clinics with those gimmicks in Tangiers

But if you open your heart to a smooth operator
He'll take you for all that you've got
He'll hand you a curse that'll be with you later
It'll shake you the way he takes off like a shot

You need a bit of
Oooo...shock treatment
Gets you jumping like a real live wire
Need a bit of
Oooo...shock treatment

So look out mister, don't you blow your last resistor
For a vista that'll mystify ya

You're blinded by romance, you're blinded by science
Your condition is critically grave
But don't expect mercy from such an alliance
Suspicion of traditions so new wave

You need a bit of
Oooo...shock Treatment
Gets you jumping like a real live wire
Need a bit of
Oooo...shock Treatment

So look out mister, don't you blow your last resistor
For a sister that'll certify ya, fy ya, fy ya

You need a bit of
Oooo...shock treatment
Gets you jumping like a real live wire
You need a bit of
Oooo...shock treatment

So look out mister, don't you blow your last resistor
For a sister that'll certify ya, fy ya, fy ya, fy ya!

    General CommentShock Treatment is the llittle seen "sequel" to the Rocky Horror Picture Show...probably for a good reason. Many of the cast returned however, and I like the songs despite the films obscurity.

    General CommentThe lyric is "locum". And a locum doctor is a doctor who substitutes for a regular doctor when that doctor isn't able to work.

    I think the line basically means that Cosmo isn't a real doctor, and so he'd never try to operate on himself, though he's more than happy to do so to other people.

    I love this song. The joy in the way they tease Brad with it is just so much fun.
