Rose Tint My World
Richard O'Brien Lyrics


It was great when it all began
I was a regular Frankie fan
But it was over when he had the plan
To start working on a muscle man
Now the only thing that gives me hope
Is my love of a certain dope
Rose tints my world
Keeps me safe from my trouble and pain

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
And keeps me safe from my trouble and pain

It's beyond me
Help me, Mommy
I'll be good, you'll see
Take this dream away
What this, let's see
I feel sexy
What's come over me?
Woo! Here it comes again

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 Frankie's landed
His lust is so sincere

-----------------------------------

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. Whoa ho ho!
Don't dream it, be it
Don't dream it, be it
Chorus

Don't dream it, be 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
Don't dream it, be it
Don't dream it, be it
Don't dream it, be it
Don't dream it, be it

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 else my mind, may well snap
And my life will be lived
For the thrills
Dr. Frank-N-Furter

Don't dream it, be it

It's beyond me
Help me, Mommy

God bless Lili St. Cyr

My my my
My my my my my
My my my my
My my
I'm a wild and an untamed thing
I'm a bee with a deadly sting
You get a hit and your mind goes ping
Your heart'll pump and your blood will sing
So let the party and the sounds rock on
We're gonna shake it 'till the life has gone
Rose tint my world
Keep me safe from my trouble and pain
Chorus

We're a wild and an untamed thing
We're a bee with a deadly sting
You get a hit and your mind goes ping
Your heart'll pump and your blood will sing
So let the party and the sounds rock on
We're gonna shake it 'till the life has gone
Rose tint my world
Keep me safe from my trouble and pain

We're a wild and an untamed thing
We're a bee with a deadly sting
You get a hit and your mind goes ping
Your heart'll pump and your blood will sing
So let the party and the sounds rock on
We're gonna shake it 'till the life has gone, gone, gone
Rose tint my world
Keep me safe from my trouble and pain

Frank-N-Furter, it's all over
Your mission is a failure
Your lifestyle's too extreme
I'm your new commander
You now are my prisoner
We return to Transylvania
Prepare the transit beam

Other than Tim Curry, David BeDella is the my favorite person to protray Frank. This is probably the best live version of Rocky Horror I absolutely love and can watch over and over again.

Antti Nissinen

I absolutely love this version! No over-the-top King Kong references or anything. Just Rocky taking Frank on his arms and holding him on his arms even when breathing his last dying breath. That's... poetic, and very simple. No need for King Kong references. I would really go to see this if only it was possible cause Covid

Aristotle

Mine other than Curry is Reg Livermore, his energy is amazing

deedeelizard

We need this on dvd so bad!!

@Mia S I wish I would’ve had the chance but hey, that’s what YouTube is for

"Me sing, you listen." Dr. Frank N Furter 2016

Biddleee Who?

@Nob the Knave yeah, but if you see the entire performance of this (it's on youtube), they absolutely ENCOURAGE people to shout, especially during the dialogue scenes. My favorite from this performance is

Audience Member: What's your favorite Lionel Richie song?

Riff Raff: Hello....

I think it was just the fact that this was a very big, iconic, slow quiet song, and he thought it wrong for this song to be interrupted. Which I agree with. This song, I'm Going Home, and Super Heroes are the three songs that you better shut up for.

TK Wallace

It makes the show better when the audience interacts with the actors. ::shrug:: The difference between enhancing the performance and interrupting it can be a fine line.

Biddleee Who?

@Josh Burns it was in the full performance. They edited it out of this one. He says "Whatever happened to Fay Wray" a first time, and someone in the audience shouts something, then he says "me sing, you listen." And he starts over.
