"Denton, U.S.A." is a song from Shock Treatment with lyrics by Richard O'Brien and Richard Hartley (who also made the musical arrangements) released in 1981 on the film album.

Several songs from the film were originally written for Rocky Horror Shows His Heels, a never-made sequel to The Rocky Horror Picture Show. The songs were rewritten for the never-made The Brad and Janet Show and once again for Shock Treatment. Some of these songs also appeared in the 2015 musical Shock Treatment: The Musical.

Lyrics

These lyrics are from the 1981 film "Shock Treatment":

Nelly Pritt:
You'll find happy hearts, and smiling faces
And tolerance for the ethnic races - in Denton

Harry Weiss:
You'll find a rambling rose and a picket fence

Tenderness and innocence - in Denton

You'll find conference rooms
And a children's playground
Denton is a real OK town
Civic pride and civic duty
And Denton girls are
Full of beauty

You may call us the goody goody two shoes
We're here to cheer you with the good news
That D-E-N-T-O-N gets T-E-N
That's ten out of ten!
