Sweet Transvestite
Richard O'Brien Lyrics

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 up, by the way 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 transexual Transylvania

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

I'm glad we caught you at home. Could we use your phone? We're

Just a reminder, this was Tim Curry’s film debut. This has to be one of the most underrated film debut performances of all time.

Tim Moroz

Right up there with Alan Rickman in Die Hard

B Blackmon

He was also the star of the Broadway play version before the movie came out so he could do this shit with his eyes closed.

@Swofz yea but for the common garden variety narcissistic douche, its the only way they know how to make the simple statement of "i enjoy [ ]"
its why this thread began with someone "reminding" the world that this was Curry's film debut (of course leaving out that Curry had already mastered playing the role on stage for years so its not like he just picked up a script and said "golly, how should i approach this character?"

I'm going home


It really grinds me when people call things underrated when they just arnt. This is one of the most popular musicals ever and where most people know Tim curry from.

It's not gender or sexuality in my opinion, but just the incredible Tim Curry charisma. You can not look away if he's here.


I mean, it’s not NOT that either.
