Time Warp
Richard O'Brien Lyrics


It's astounding
Time is fleeting
Madness takes it's 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
An then a step to the right
With your hands on your hip

You bring your knees in tight
But it's the pelvic thrust
That really drives you insane
Let's do the time warp again
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 into 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
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 give me an evil wink
He shook-a me up, he took me by surprise
He had a pickup truck, and the devil's eyes
He starred at me and I felt a change
Time meant nothing, never would again

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 hip

You bring your knees in tight
But it's the pelvic thrust
That really drives you insane
Let's do the time warp again
Let's do the time warp again

He's got a great West End/Broadway voice. Full of character and charisma. Not surprised he's performed in so many big shows - Hair, Jesus Christ Superstar, Rocky Horror etc

Demodoy Fan

he wrote rocky horror

BrokenBard

I love the Rockabilly tweak to this version.

merton1982

He must be the youngest looking pensioner of all time!!! 70 next year!!!

RyanHannaMusic

that was fuckin EPIC!

Gobshite

What a voice!

Keith Slawson

Never caught the Rockabilly vibe before....;-)

Geoffrey Gentry

Glam rock is really 50s rock and roll with louder guitars and louder outfits.

Bob Shook

It’s especially apparent during the “It’s just a jump to the left...” pre-chorus part.

RyanHannaMusic

that vibe was lost in the production of the time, but it screams rockabilly when you reduce it and strip it back
