sword of damocles
Richard O'Brien Lyrics


Rocky Horror:
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

Chorus: That ain't no crime

Rocky Horror: And left from my dreaming was a feeling of unnameable dread

Chorus: That ain't no crime

Rocky Horror:
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

Dr. Frank-N-Furter: Oh, Rocky!

Chorus: Sha la la la
That ain't no crime

Rocky Horror: Oh no no no

Chorus: Sha la la la
That ain't no crime

Rocky Horror: Oh no no no

Dr. Frank-N-Furter: Oh, my baby!

Chorus:
Sha la la la
That ain't no crime
That ain't no crime

Rocky Horror: The Sword of Damocles is hanging over my head

Dr. Frank-N-Furter: Oh, really!

Chorus: That ain't no crime

Rocky Horror:
And I've got the feeling someone's gonna be cutting the thread

Chorus: That ain't no crime

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

Dr. Frank-N-Furter: Come here!

Chorus:
Sha la la la
That ain't no crime

Rocky Horror: Oh no no no

Chorus: Sha la la la
That ain't no crime

Rocky Horror: Oh no no no

Chorus: Sha la la la
That ain't no crime
That ain't no crime

Sha la la la
That ain't no crime

Rocky Horror: Oh no no no

Chorus: Sha la la la
That ain't no crime

Rocky Horror: Oh no no no

Chorus: Sha la la la
That ain't no crime
That ain't no crime
Sha la la
