the sword of damocles
Rocky Horror Lyrics


The Sword of Damocles is hangin' over my head
and I've got the feelin' someone's gonna be cuttin' 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 mornin' with a start when I fell out of bed
And left from my dreaming was a feeling of unnameable dread
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
Shalalala that ain't no crime
Shalalala that ain't no crime
Shalalala that ain't no crime
It ain't no crime
The Sword of Damocles is hangin' over my head
And I got the feelin' someone's gonna be cuttin' the thread
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?
Shalalala that ain't no crime
Shalalala that ain't no crime
Shalalala that ain't no crime
It ain't no crime
Shalalala that ain't no crime
Shalalala that ain't no crime
Shalalala that ain't no crime
It ain't no crime
Shalala

It really sucks that this song isn’t on the soundtrack, it’s such a great song and really underrated

Boopers

I found it on Apple music but it's weird it's like a hair too slow and the voice is a little deeper

Caitlin Daly

It's on spotify now 😁!!

Peter hinwood the actor of Rocky was not a singer, so they used Auto-Tune

An Internet Stranger

It’s on the Vinal record. I have it it’s also got that cut song. Once in a while

David Obrien

They have it on the original Roxy (London) live show the predates the movie by a couple of years and it's the original cast, it's really good and you'll get extra songs too, like this one and "Once in a While" extended "Floor Show Medley" Super Heros and different reprises. Hope this helps😊

Frank chasing after Rocky in heels screaming & howling is absolutely hysterical!

Tracy Piscopo

The hysterical dress thrashing as he runs down the ramp will always make me laugh
