Time Warp
Rocky Horror Show Original London Cast Lyrics


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 doing 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!

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
With a bit of a mind flip
You're there in 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!

Well I was walking down the street just a-having a think
When a snake of a guy gave me an evil wink
He sme 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
Let's do the Time Warp again!

we need to talk about how Richard looks like a homeless version of Riff in the photo

Stotle

I like this version better. It's more Proto punk esque. It's more simple and sounds more like a band singing it

Barbara Granger

Thanks. My best mate Martin Fitzgibbon played drums on this track. He maintains it was the start of the uk punk scene

john colon Alessandro Corda I prefer the film version because it has more voices and Richard o Brian isn't dominating loudly over everyone else, but I still do love Richard O' Brian--and this version. I love the black and white images!

George Andrade

i think it's pretty shit that they didn't let Patricia Quinn sing the entire second verse like she does here in the original stage show, same goes for them not letting her do science fiction, double feature.

Dylan Simon

Yeah always thought that Patricia got screwed out of her songs.

Katie Andrew

Richard was the better singer though and they were his songs

Le Gabriel Cantal

@scubadeedee
Wait what

Jesse Thompson

scubadeedee
Wait what?

Barbara Granger

Complete bullshit. Neither of them were stoned. My best mate Martin Fitzgibbon played drums on this record and for the original show. He was also at the filming and what you said didn’t happen
