Rocky Horror Show - 1974 Australian Cast: 15 song lyrics        13,053 views

"Michael Rennie was ill
The day the earth stood still
But he told us where we stand
And flash gordon was there
In silver underwear
Claude rains was the invisible man
Then something went wrong
For Fay Wray and king kong
They got caught in a celluloid jam
Then at a deadly pace
It came from outer space
And this is how the message ran.

CHORUS

Science fiction — double feature
Dr. X will build a creature
See Androids fighting Brad and Janet
Anne Francis stars in forbidden planet
Oh — at the late night double feature
Picture show

I knew Leo G. Carrol
Was over a barrel
When tarrantula took to the hills
And I got really hot
When I saw Jeanette Scott
Fight a triffid that spits poison and kills
Dana Andrews said prunes
Gave him the ruhnes
And passing them used lots of skills
And when worlds collide
Said George Pal to his bride
I'm going to give you some terrible thrills
Like a —

CHORUS

"Hey Janet, I've got something to say
I really loved the skillful way
You beat the other girls to the bride's bouquet
The river was deep but I swam it.
The future is ours so let's plan it.
So please don't tell me to can it.
I've one thing to say and that's...
Damn it — Janet — I love you.

The road was long but I ran it.
There's a fire in my heart and you fan it.
If there's one fool for you than I am it
I've one thing to say and that's...
Damn it — Janet — I love you.

Here's a ring to prove I'm no joker
(Bell voices)
There's three ways that love can grow
That's good — bad — or mediocre
Janet — love you so.

Oh it's nicer than Betty Munroe had.
Now were engaged and I'm so glad.
That you've met Mom and you know Dad
I've one thing to say and that's...
Brad — I'm mad — for you too.

Oh Brad.
Oh damn it.
I'm mad.
Oh Janet.
For you.

I love you too — there's one thing left to do and that's...
Go see the man that began it
When we met in his science exam it
Made me give you the eye and then panic
Now I've one thing to say and that's...
Damn it — Janet — I love you.

Damn it Janet.
Oh Brad I'm mad.
Damn it Janet.
I love you."

"In the velvet darkness
of the blackest night
burning bright — there's a guiding star
no matter what or who you are.

CHORUS

There's a light.
"Over at the Frankenstein place"
There's a light
Burning in the fireplace
There's a light ... Light in the darkness of everybody's life

I can see the flag fly
I can see the rain
Just the same — there has got to be
Something better here — for you and me

CHORUS

The darkness must flow
Down the river of nights dreaming
Flow morphia slow let the sun and light come streaming into my life
Into my life

CHORUS

"How do you so
I see you've met my faithful handy­man
He's a little brought down
Because when you knocked
He thought you were the candyman
Don't get strung out by the way that I look
Don't judge a book by its cover
I'm not much of a man
But by night I'm one hell of a lover

CHORUS

I'm just a sweet Transvestite
From Transexual
Transalvania.

Let me show you around, maybe play you a sound
You look like you're pretty groovie
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
Ah — could we use your phone
We're both in a bit of a hurry
We'll just say where we are
Then go back to the car
We don't want to be any worry.
You caught me with a flat
Well how about that
Well babie's don't you panic
By the light of the night
It'll all seem alright
I'll get you satanic mechanic

CHORUS

Why don't cha stay for the night
       (Servants — "Night")
Or maybe a bite
       (Servants — "Bite")
I could show you my favourite obsession
I've been making a man
With blond hair and a tan
and he's good for relieving my tension

CHORUS

REPEAT CHORUS

So come up to the lab
and see what's on the slab
I see you shiver with anticipation
But maybe the rain
Is really to blame
So I'll remove the cause but not the symptom".

"It's astounding — Time is fleeting
Madness takes its 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 — The void would be calling.

CHORUS

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 hips
You bring your knees in tight
But it's the pelvic thrust
That starts to drive 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'll see all
With a bit of a mind flip — you're there in the time slip
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 having a think
When a snake of a guy gave me an evil wink
Well it shook me up, it took me by surprise
He had a pick up truck and the devil's eyes
Oh — he stared at me and I felt a change
Time meant nothing — never would again

CHORUS

The sword of Damocles is hanging over my head and I've got the feeling someone's
Going to 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 the bed.
That ain't no crime
And left from my dreaming was a feeling of unamiable dread.

That ain't no crime
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.

(That ain't no crime)
Oh no no no no
(Sha la la la that ain't no crime)
(That ain't no crime)
Oh no no no no
(Sha la la la that ain't no crime)
(That ain't no crime)
(Sha la la la that ain't no crime)
(That ain't no crime)

Rocky Horror you need no peace of mind —
and I want to tell you that you're doing just fine
You're the product of another time and feeling down well that's no crime.

That ain't no crime
The sword of Damocles is hanging over my head
That ain't no crime.
And I've got the feeling someone's going to be cutting the thread.
That ain't no crime.

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.

(That ain't no crime)
Oh no no no no
(Sha la la la that ain't no crime)

"He carries the Charles Atlas seal of approval"
A weakling weighing 98 pounds
Got sand in his face when kicked to the ground
His girl split on him
And soon in the gym
The sweat from his pores
As he worked for his cause

Made him glisten and gleam
And with massage and steam
He was thin but quite clean
He was in good shape

But the wrong shape

He ate nutritious High-Protein
And swallowed raw eggs
Tried to build up his shoulders,
His chest, arms and legs
Then a magazine advert with a new muscle plan
(said)

In just seven days I can make you a man.

He'd done press ups and chin ups
Clean and jerked. Done the Snatch
Thought dynamic tension must be a catch
So he re-read the advert to see how it ran

In just seven days I can make you a man".

"Whatever happened to Saturday night"
When you got dressed up sharp and you felt alright
It don't seem the same since cosmic light
Came into my life and I thought I was devine
I used to go for a ride with a chick who'd go
And listen to the music on the radio
A saxophone was blowing on a Rock and Roll show
And you climbed in the back and you really had
A good time.

"Hot Patootie" bless my soul
I really love that Rock and Roll
"Hot Patootie" bless my soul
I really love that Rock and Roll
"Hot Patootie" bless my soul
I really love that Rock and Roll
"Hot Patootie" bless my soul
I really love that Rock and Roll

My head used to swim from the perfume I smelt
My hands kind of fumbled with her white plastic belt.
I'd taste her baby pink lipstick and that's when I'd melt.
And she'd whisper in my ear tonight she really was mine.
Get back in front and put some hair oil on
Buddy Holly was singing his very last song
With your arm round your girl you'd try to sing along
You feel pretty good cause you'd really had
A good time.

"Hot Patootie" bless my soul
I really love that Rock and Roll.

I was feeling done in
Couldn't win
I'd only ever kissed before
I thought there's no use getting
into heavy petting
It only leads to trouble
and seat wetting.

Now all I want to know
Is how to go
I've tasted blood and I want more
I'll put up no resistance
I want to stay the distance
I've got an itch to scratch
And I need assistance

CHORUS

Touch-a Touch-a Touch-a Touch-me.
I want to be dirty
Thrill me chill me fulfil me
Creature of the night.

Then if anything grows
When you pose

I'll oil you up and rub you down
And that's just one small fraction
of the main attraction
You need a friendly hand
and I need action.

CHORUS

"Once in a while
She don't want to call you
Speaking on the telephone
And once in your life
She won't want to know you
You look around
The one you found she is gone

And that's all the time
That it takes
For a heart to turn to stone
The sweeter the wine
The harder to make the break
You hear something
About someone you thought you'd known
So baby don't cry
Like there's no tomorrow
After the night there's a brand new day
And there'll be no pain
And no more sorrow
So wash your face
And phone my place. It'll be okay.

And that's all the time
That it takes
For a heart to beat again
So give me a sign
That a lover makes
You look around the one
Found is back again..."

"From the day he was born, he was trouble
He was the thorn in his mother's side
She tried in vain.
But he never caused her nothing but shame.

He left home the day she died.
From the day he was gone
All he wanted
Was a rockin' roll porn and a motor bike.
Shootin' up junk.
He was a low down cheap little punk.
Taking everybody for a ride.

CHORUS

When Eddie said he didn't like his teddy.
You knew he was a good kid.
When he threatened your life with a switch blade knife.
What a guy.
Makes you cry.
And I did.

Everybody shoved him.
I very nearly loved him.
I said hey listen to me.
Stay sane inside insanity.
But he shut the door and threw away the key.

But he must have been drawn into something
Making him warn me in a note which reads

What's it say. What's it say.
I'm out of my head.
Hurry or I may be dead.
They mustn't carry out their evil deeds.

CHORUS

What a guy.
Makes you cry.
And I did."

Tell you once
Won't tell you twice
You'd better wise up Janet Weiss

Y'apple pie
Don't taste too nice
You'd better wise up Janet Weiss

I've laid the seed
It should be all you need
You're as sensual
As a pencil
Wound up like an 'E' or first string
When we made it
Did ja hear a bell ring?

Y'got a block
take my advice
You'd better wise up Janet Weiss

The transducer
Will seduce yah
It's something you'll get used to
A mental-mind-fuck can be nice

You'd better wise up — Janet Weiss
You'd better wise up
Build your thighs up
You'd better wise up

And then she cries out.

Stop!!

"It was great
When it all began
I was a regular Frank 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 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 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's this, let's see
I feel sexy
What's come over me
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

What ever happened to Fay Wray
That delicate satin draped frame
As it clung to her thigh
How I started to cry
For 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 reasure forever —
Can't you just see it.

Don't dream it — Be it
Don't dream it — Be it
Don't dream it — Be it

Hmm ... 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 my mind may well snap
And my life will be lived for the thrills

It's beyond me
Help me mommy

God bless Lilly St. Cyr.

MY MY MY MY

I'm a wild and an untamed thing
I'm a bee with a deadly sting
Get a hit, and your mind goes ping
Your heart'll thump and your blood will sing
So let the party and the sounds rock on
Gonna shake it till the life has 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 life style's too extreme
I'm your new commander
You are now my prisoner
We return to Transalvania
Prepare the transit beam.

Wait — I can explain
On the day I went away
Goodbye
Was all I had to say
Now I
Want to come again and stay
Oh my
Smile and that will mean I may

I've seen blue skies
Through the tears in my eyes
And I realise I'm going home
I'm going home

Everywhere it's been the same
Feeling
Like I'm outside in the rain
Wheeling
Free to try and find a game
Dealing
Cards for sorrow cards for pain

I've seen blue skies
through the tears in my eyes
And I realise — I'm going home
I'm going home
I'm going home."

"I've done a lot
God knows I've tried
To find the truth
I've even lied
But all I know
Is down inside

I'm bleeding

And super heroes
Come to feast
To taste the flesh
Not yet deceased
And all I know
Is still the beast

Is feeding.

And crawling on the planets face
Some insects called the human race
Lost in time
And lost in space
And meaning."
