Rocky Horror Picture Show Complete Lyrics
These are even more complete than are usually found on the web since there are a couple verses to "Over at the Frankenstein Place" and "Sword Of Damocles" that were in the original production but excised for the film version.  Also included is "Once in a While" which was filmed but cut from the theatrical version, and the reprise of "Science Fiction Double Feature" that isn't in all prints of the movie.


Science Fiction Double Feature
[Riff] Michael Rennie was ill
The Day the Earth Stood Still,
But he told us where we stand.
And Flash Gordon was there
In silver underwear.
Claude Rains was The Invisible Man.
Then something went wrong,
For Fay Wray and King Kong.
They got caught in a celluloid jam.
Then at a deadly pace,
It Came From Outer Space,
And this is how the message ran...

Science fiction (ooh ooh ooh) double feature.
Doctor X (ooh ooh ooh) will build a creature.
See androids fighting (ooh ooh ooh) Brad and Janet.
Anne Francis stars in (ooh ooh ooh) Forbidden Planet.
Wo oh oh oh oh oh,
At the late night, double feature, picture show.

I knew Leo G. Carroll
Was over a barrel,
When Tarantula took to the hills.
And I really got hot,
When I saw Janette Scott
Fight a Triffid that spits poison and kills.
Dana Andrews said prunes
Gave him the runes.
And passing them used lots of skills.
But When Worlds Collide,
Said George Pal to his bride,
I'm gonna give you some terrible thrills.
Like a...

Science fiction (ooh ooh ooh) double feature.
Doctor X (ooh ooh ooh) will build a creature.
See androids fighting (ooh ooh ooh) Brad and Janet.
Anne Francis stars in (ooh ooh ooh) Forbidden Planet.
Wo oh oh oh oh oh
At the late night, double feature, picture show,
I wanna go - Oh oh oh oh
To the late night, double feature, picture show,
By R.K.O. - Wo oh oh oh
To the late night, double feature, picture show,
In the back row - Oh oh oh oh
To the late night, double feature, picture show,


Dammit, Janet
[Brad] Hey Janet.
[Janet] (Yes Brad?)
[Brad] I've got something to say.
I really loved the... skillful way,
You beat the other girls to the bride's bouquet!

The river was deep but I swam it, Janet.
The future is ours so let's plan it, Janet.
So please don't tell me to can it, Janet.
I've one thing to say and that's,
Dammit, Janet, I love you...

The road was long but I ran it, Janet.
There's a fire in my heart and you fan it, Janet.
If there's one fool for you then I am it, Janet.
Now I've one thing to say and that's Dammit, Janet,
I love you...

Here's a ring to prove that I'm no joker.
There's three ways that love can grow:
That's good, bad or mediocre.
Oh J-A-N-E-T I love you so.

[Janet] Oh it's nicer than Betty Munroe had, oh Brad.
Now we're engaged and I'm so glad, oh Brad,
That you've met Mum and you know Dad, oh Brad.
I've one thing to say and that's,
Brad, I'm mad for you too...

[Janet] Oh Brad,
[Brad] Oh... dammit!
[Janet] I'm mad,
[Brad] Oh Janet!
[Janet] For you,
[Brad] I love you too.
[Both] There's one thing left to do...

[Brad] And that's go see the man who began it,
When we met in his science exam-it,
Made me give you the eye and then panic.
There's one thing to say,
And that's Dammit, Janet, I love you...

[Brad] Dammit Janet;
[Janet] Oh Brad, I'm mad
[Brad] Dammit Janet
[Both] I love you!


(There's a Light) Over at the Frankenstein Place
[Janet] In the velvet darkness,
Of the blackest night,
Burning bright,
There's a guiding star,
No matter what,
Or who you are.

[Both] There's a light,
[All] Over at the Frankenstein Place.
[Both] There's a light,
[All] Burning in the fireplace.
[Both] There's a light, light,
in the darkness of everybody's life.

[Note: The following verse and chorus are from the original production and didn't appear in the movie.]

[Brad] I can see the flag fly,
I can see the rain.
Just the same,
There has got to be,
Something better here for you and me.

[Both] There's a light,
[All] Over at the Frankenstein Place.
[Both] There's a light,
[All] Burning in the fireplace.
[Both] There's a light, light,
In the darkness of everybody's life.

[Riff] The darkness must go,
Down the river of nights dreaming.
Flow morphia slow,
Let the sun and light come streaming,
Into my life.
Into my liiiife.

[Both] There's a light,
[All] over at the Frankenstein Place.
[Both] There's a light,
[All] burning in the fireplace.
[Both] There's a light, light,
In the darkness of everybody's life.


The Time Warp
[Riff] It's astounding,
Time is fleeting.
Madness,
Takes its toll.
But listen closely,
[Mag] Not for very much longer.
[Riff] I've got to keep control.

I remember,
Doing the Time Warp,
Drinking,
Those moments when,
The blackness would hit me,
[Mag] And the void would be calling.

[All]  Let's do the time warp again...
Let's do the time warp again!

[Crim] It's just a jump to the left.
[All] And then a step to the right.
[Crim] With your hands on your hips,
[All] You bring your knees in tight.
But it's the pelvic thrust
That really drives you insane,
Let's do the Time Warp again!

[Mag] It's so dreamy,
Oh fantasy free me,
So you can't see me,
No not at all.
In another dimension,
With voyeuristic intention,
Well-secluded,
I see all.

[Riff] With a bit of a mind flip,
[Mag] You're into the time slip,
[Riff] And nothing can ever be the same.
[Mag] You're spaced out on sensation,
[Riff] Like you're under sedation.
[All] Let's do the Time Warp again!

[Col] 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 me up,
He took me by surprise,
He had a pickup truck,
And the devil's eyes.
He stared at me,
And I felt a change.
Time meant nothing,
Never would again.

[All] Let's do the Time Warp again!
Let's do the Time Warp again!

[Crim] It's just a jump to the left.
[All] And then a step to the right.
[Crim] With your hands on your hips,
[All] You bring your knees in tight.
But it's the pelvic thrust,
That really drives you insane,
Let's do the Time Warp again!


Sweet Transvestite
[Frank]
How d'you do, I
See you've met my
Faithful handyman.

He's just a little brought down,
Because when you knocked,
He thought you were the candyman.

Don't get strung out
By the way that I look,
Don't judge a book by its cover.
I'm not much of a man
By the light of day,
But by night I'm one hell of a lover.

I'm just a Sweet Transvestite,
From Transsexual, Transylvania.

So let me show you around,
Maybe play you a sound.
You look like you're both pretty groovy.

Or if you want something visual,
That's not too abysmal,
We could take in an old Steve Reeves movie.

[Brad] I'm glad we caught you at home,
Could we use your phone?
We're both in a bit of a hurry. [Janet]  Right!

We'll just say where we are,
Then go back to the car.
We don't want to be any worry.

[Frank] Well, you got caught with a flat,
Well, how about that?
Well babies, don't you panic.

By the light of the night,
It'll all seems alright.
I'll get you a satanic mechanic.

I'm just a Sweet Transvestite,
From Transsexual, Transylvania.

So why don't you stay for the night? [Riff]  Night!
Or maybe a bite? [Col]  Bite!

I could show you my favorite obsession.
I've been making a man with blond hair and a tan,
And he's good for relieving my tension.

I'm just a Sweet Transvestite,
from Transsexual, Transylvania.

So come up to the lab.
And see what's on the slab.
I see you shiver with antici... pation!

But maybe the rain,
Isn't really to blame.
So I'll remove the cause,
But not the symptom.


The Sword Of Damocles
[Rocky] The sword of Damocles is hanging over my head,
And I've got the feeling someone's gonna be cutting the thread.

Oh, woe is me,
My life is a misery.
Oh, can't you see,
That I'm at the start of a pretty big downer?

I woke up this morning with a start when I fell out of bed,
And left from my dreaming was a feeling of unnameable dread.

My high is low,
I'm dressed up with no place to go.
And all I know,
Is I'm at the start of a pretty big downer...

[All] Sha-la-la-la that ain't no crime That ain't no crime.
Sha-la-la-la that ain't no crime That ain't no crime.

[Note: The following verse is from the original production and didn't appear in the movie.]

[Riff? Crim?] Rocky Horror you need peace of mind,
And I want to tell you that you're doing just fine.
You're the product of another time.
And feeling down, well that's no crime...

[Rocky] The sword of Damocles is hanging over my head,
And I've got the feeling someone's gonna be cutting the thread.

Oh, woe is me,
My life is a mystery.
Oh, can't you see,
That I'm at the start of a pretty big downer?

[All] Sha-la-la-la that ain't no crime That ain't no crime.
Sha-la-la-la that ain't no crime That ain't no crime.

Sha-la-la-la that ain't no crime That ain't no crime.
Sha-la-la-la that ain't no crime That ain't no crime.
La-la-la!


I Can Make You a Man
[Frank] A weakling,
Weighing ninety-eight pounds,
Will get sand in his face,
When kicked to the ground.

And soon
In the gym with a determined chin,
The sweat from his pores,
As he works for his cause...

Will make him glisten...
And gleam,
And with massage,
And just a little bit of steam...

He'll be pink.
And quite clean.
He'll be a strong man. Oh honey...
But the wrong man.

He'll eat nutritious,
High protein and swallow raw eggs.
Try to build up his shoulders,
His chest, arms, and legs.

Such an effort,
If he only knew of my plan.
In just seven days,
I can make you a man.

He'll do press-ups,
And chin-ups,
Do the snatch, clean and jerk.
He thinks dynamic tension must be hard work.

Such strenuous living,
I just don't understand,
When in just seven days,
Oh baby, I can make you a man.


Hot Patootie - Bless My Sound (What Ever Happened To Saturday Night?)
[Eddie] Whatever happened to Saturday night,
When you dressed up sharp and you felt alright?
It don't seem the same since cosmic light
Came into my life, I thought I was divine...

I used to go for a ride with a chick who'd go,
And listen to the music on the radio.
A saxophone was blowin' on a rock & roll show.
You climbed in the back seat, you really had a good time.

Hot patootie, bless my soul,
I really love that rock 'n' roll.
Hot patootie, bless my soul,
I really love that rock 'n' roll.
Hot patootie, bless my soul,
I really love that rock 'n' roll.
Hot patootie, bless my soul,
I really love that rock 'n' roll.

[Sax solo]

My head used to swim from the perfume I smelled.
My hands kind of fumbled with her white plastic belt.
I'd taste her baby pink lipstick and that's when I'd melt.
She'd whisper in my ear tonight she really was mine.

Get back in front, put some hair oil on.
Buddy Holly was singing his very last song.
With your arms around your girl you'd try to sing along.
It felt pretty good, oh, you really had a good time.

Hot patootie, bless my soul,
I really love that rock 'n' roll.
Hot patootie, bless my soul,
I really love that rock 'n' roll.
Hot patootie, bless my soul,
I really love that rock 'n' roll.
Hot patootie, bless my soul,
I really love that rock 'n' roll.
Hot patootie, bless my soul,
I really love that rock 'n' roll.


I Can Make You a Man (Reprise)
[Frank] But a deltoid and a bicep,
A hot groin and a tricep.
Makes me shake,
Makes me wanna take Charles Atlas by the...hand.

In just seven days,
I can make you a man.

I don't want no dissension,
Just dynamic tension.

[Janet]  I'm a muscle fan.

[Frank] In just seven days,
I can make you a man.
Dig it if you can...
In just seven days,
I can make you a man.


Toucha, Toucha, Touch Me
[Janet] I was feeling done in,
Couldn't win.
I'd only ever kissed before.

I thought there's no use getting,
Into heavy petting.
It only leads to trouble and seat wetting...

Now all I want to know,
Is how to go.
I've tasted blood and I want more.

I'll put up no resistance,
I want to stay the distance.
I've got an itch to scratch,
I need assistance.

Toucha toucha toucha touch me,
I wanna be dirty.
Thrill me chill me fulfil me,
Creature of the night.

Then if anything grows,
While you pose,
I'll oil you up and rub you down.

And that's just one small fraction
Of the main attraction.
You need a friendly hand,
And I need action...

Toucha toucha toucha touch me,
I wanna be dirty.
Thrill me chill me fulfill me,
Creature of the night.

[Col] Toucha toucha toucha touch me,
[Mag] I wanna be dirty.
[Col] Thrill me chill me fulfil me,
[Mag] Creature of the night.

[Janet] Toucha toucha toucha touch me,
I wanna be dirty.
Thrill me chill me fulfill me,
Creature of the night.

[Janet]  Creature of the night.
[Brad]  Creature of the night.
[Frank]  Creature of the night.
[Mag]  Creature of the night.
[Riff]  Creature of the night.
[Col]  Creature of the night.
[?] Creature of the night.
[Janet]  Creature of the night.


Once In A While
[Note: The following song is from the original production and didn't appear in the movie.]

[Brad] Once in a while,
She don't want to call you,
Speaking on the telephone.

And once in your life,
She won't want to know you.
You look around,
The one you found she is gone.

And that's all the time,
That it takes,
For a heart to turn to stone.

The sweeter the wine,
The harder to make the break.
You hear something about someone,
You thought you'd known.

So baby don't cry,
Like there's no tomorrow.
After the night, there's brand new day.

And there'll be no pain,
And no more sorrow.
So wash your face and phone my place,
It'll be okay.

And that's all the time that it takes,
For a heart to beat again.

So give me a sign,
That a lover makes.
You look around,
The one you found is back again...


Eddie's Teddy
[Doc] From the day he was born,
He was trouble.
He was the thorn,
In his mother's side.

She tried in vain,
But he never caused her nothing but shame.
He left home the day she died.

From the day she was gone,
All he wanted,
Was rock'n'roll, porn,
And a motorbike.

Shooting up junk,
[Crim] He was a low-down, cheap little punk,
[Doc] Taking everyone for a ride.

[All] When Eddie said he didn't like his teddy you knew he was a no-good kid.
But when he threatened your life with a switch-blade knife,
[Frank] What a guy.
[Janet] Makes you cry.
[Doc] Und I did.

[Col] Everybody shoved him,
I very nearly loved him.
I said hey listen to me,
Stay sane inside insanity,
But he locked the door,
And threw away the key...

[Doc] But he must been drawn,
Into something,
Making him warn,
Me in a note which reads [All] (what's it say, what's it say?)

[Eddie] "I'm outta my head,
O hurry or I may be dead.
They mustn't carry out their evil deeds..." [scream]

[All] When Eddie said he didn't like his teddy you knew he was a no-good kid.
But when he threatened your life with a switch-blade knife,
[Frank] What a guy.
[Janet] Makes you cry.
[Doc] Und I did.

[All] When Eddie said he didn't like his teddy you knew he was a no-good kid
But when he threatened your life with a switchblade knife
[Frank] What a guy [Whoa ho ho]
[Janet] Makes you cry [Hey hey hey]
[Doc] Und I did. [Oh,. yeah]


Planet, Schmanet, Janet
[Frank] I'll tell you once,
I won't tell you twice.
You'd better wise up,
Janet Weiss.

Your apple pie
Don't taste too nice.
You'd better wise up,
Janet Weiss.

I've laid the seed.
It should be all you need.
You're as sensual as a pencil,
Wound up like an E or a first string.

When we made it,
Did you hear a bell ring?

You got a block?
Well, take my advice
You better wise up,
Janet Weiss.

The transducer
Will seduce ya.

[Janet] (My feet! I can't move my feet!)
[Doc] (My wheels! My God, I can't move my wheels!)
[Brad] (It's as if we're glued to the spot!)
[Frank] (You are! So quake with fear, you tiny fools!)
[Janet] (We're trapped!)

[Frank] It's something you'll get used to!
A mental mind fuck can be nice.

[Doc] (You won't find Earth people quite the easy mark you imagine. This sonic transducer - it is, I suppose, some kind of audio-vibratory physio-molecular transport device?)
[Brad] (You mean...?)
[Doc] (Yes, Brad, it's something we ourselves have been working on for quite some time. But it seems our Friend here has found a means of perfecting it. A device which is capable of breaking down solid matter and Then projecting it through space and, who knows, perhaps even time itself!)
[Janet] (You mean he's going to send us to another planet?)

[Frank] Planet, schmanet, Janet!

You better wise up,
Janet Weiss.
You better wise up,
Build your thighs up.

You better wise up...
[Crim] (And then she cried out...)
[Janet] (Sto iii - eee - iii - eee - ppp!)

[Frank] Don't get hot and flustered,
Use a bit of mustard.

[Brad] You're a hot dog,
But you better not try to hurt her,
Frank Furter.

[Doc] You're a hot dog,
But you'd better not try to hurt her,
Frank Furter.

[Janet] You're a hot dog...


Floor Show….Rose Tint My World
[Col] It was great when it all began.
I was a regular Frankie fan.
But it was over when he had the plan
To start a-working on a muscle man.

Now the only that gives me hope
Is my love for a certain dope.
Rose tints my world,
Keeps me safe from my trouble and pain.

[Rocky] I'm just seven hours old,
Truly beautiful to behold.
And somebody should be told,
My libido hasn't been controlled.

Now the only thing I've come to trust,
Is an orgasmic rush of lust.
Rose tints my world,
Keeps me safe from my trouble and pain.

[Brad] It's beyond me,
Help me Mommy!
I'll be good, you'll see.
Take this dream away.

What's this?
Let's see.
I feel sexy!

What's come over me?
Wooo! Here it comes again...

[Janet] Oh I feel released.
Bad times deceased.
My confidence has increased.
Reality is here.

The game has been disbanded.
My mind has been expanded.
It's a gas that Frank's landed!
His lust is so sincere.


Don’t Dream It….Be It
[Frank] Whatever happened to Fay Wray?
That delicate satin draped frame.

As it clung to her thigh,
How I started to cry,
Cause I wanted to be dressed,
Just the same...

Give yourself over to absolute pleasure.
Swim the warm waters of sins of the flesh.
Erotic nightmares beyond any measure.
And sensual daydreams to treasure forever.

Can't you just see it?
Don't dream it - be it.
Don't dream it - be it.
Don't dream it - be it.
Don't dream it - be it.

[Doc] Ach! We've got to get out of this trap...
Before this decadence saps our wills.
I've got to be strong,
And try to hang on,
Or my mind may well snap,
Und my life will be lived for the thrills...

[Brad] It's beyond me!
Help me, Mommy!
[Janet] God bless
Lily St. Cyr...


Wild and Untamed Thing
[Frank] My my my, my my my my my, my my my my...
I'm a wild and untamed thing.
I'm a bee with a deadly sting.
You get a hit and your mind goes ping.
Your heart will pump and your blood will sing.

So let the party and the sound rock on,
We're gonna shake it til the life has gone.
Rose tints my world,
Keeps me safe from my trouble and pain.

We're wild and untamed things,
We're a bee with a deadly sting.
You get a hit and your mind goes ping,
Your heart will pump and your blood will sing.

So let the party and the sound rock on.
We're gonna shake it til the life has gone.
Rose tints my world keeps me safe from my trouble and pain.

[Instrumental break]

We're wild and untamed things,
We're a bee with a deadly sting.
You get a hit and your mind goes ping,
Your heart will pump and your blood will sing.

So let the party and the sound rock on.
We're gonna shake it til the life has gone gone gone.
Rose tints my world keeps me safe from my trouble and pain.

[Riff] Frankenfurter,
It's all over.
Your mission is a failure,
Your lifestyle's too extre-e-eme.

I'm your new commander.
You now are my prisoner.
We return to Transylvania.
Prepare the transit beam...


I'm Going Home
[Frank] On the day I went away... goodbye...
Was all I had to say... now I...
I want to come again and stay... Oh my my...
Smile, and that will mean that I may.

Cause I've seen...
Blue skies,
Through the tears
In my eyes.
And I realise...
I'm going home.

Everywhere it's been the same... feeling...
Like I'm outside in the rain... wheeling...
Free, to try and find a game... dealing...
Cards for sorrow, cards for pain.

Cause I've seen...
Blue skies,
Through the tears
In my eyes.
And I realize...
I'm going home.


Super Heroes
[Brad] I've done a lot,
God knows I've tried.
To find the truth,
I've even lied.

But all I know,
Is down inside I'm bleeding.

[Janet] And Super Heroes
Come to feast,
To taste the flesh,
Not yet deceased.

And all I know,
Is still the beast is feeding.

[Instrumental break]

[Crim] And crawling,
On the planet's face,
Some insects,
Called the human race.
Lost in time, and lost in space,
And meaning.


Science Fiction/Double Feature (Reprise)
[Riff] Science Fiction Double Feature.
Frank has built and lost his creature.
Darkness has conquered Brad and Janet.
The servants gone to a distant planet.

Whoa ho huh ho hoao Oh oh oh, at the late night double feature picture show.
I want to go,
Uh oh oh oh, To the late night double feature picture show.
