"Farley's Song" 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":

Farley Flavors:
Oh, why aren't they doing
Tomorrow's new dance steps
The way they used to yesterday
And who draws a perfect circle anymore

And if you're waiting for greatness
To shake hands with you
You better daydream your life away
I've only wanted one thing and that's for sure

Cosmo, Nation, Ansalong & Ricky:
You're not just looking at a fast food king
Just another well known face
You're not looking at a king of anything

Farley:
I'm gonna shoot for the moon
I'm gonna play high noon
I'm gonna take on the entire human race

Cosmo, Nation, Ansalong & Ricky:
You're not looking at a king

Farley:
You're looking at an ace

Oooh, I've got the sight
And I've seen the light
And I'm gonna see the coming day
When the sun in the sky
Is a spotlight just for me

I want to take my time
And rock some rhyme
Oh, it's gonna take your breath away
You'll be the front page rage of the age
Just wait and see

Cosmo, Nation, Ansalong & Ricky:
You're not just looking at a fast food king
Just another well known face
You're not looking at a king of anything

Farley:
I'm gonna shoot for the moon
I'm gonna play high noon
I'm gonna take on the entire human race

Cosmo, Nation, Ansalong & Ricky:
You're not looking at a king

Farley:
No no no no no

Farley (Cosmo, Nation, Ansalong & Ricky):
You're looking at an ace (You're looking at an ace)
You're looking at a goddamn ace (You're looking at an ace)
You're looking at an ace (You're looking at an ace)

Farley:
You're looking at an a-a-a-a-ace

These lyrics are from the 1980 failed project "The Brad and Janet Show"

Farley Flavors:
Oh, why aren't they doing
Tomorrow's new dance steps
The way they used to yesterday
And who draws a perfect circle anymore

And if you're waiting for greatness
To shake hands with you
You better daydream your life away
I've only wanted one thing and that's for sure

Farley with his factory employees:
You're not just looking at a fast food king
Just another well known face
You're not looking at a king of anything
I'm gonna shoot for the moon
I'm gonna play high noon
I'm gonna take on the entire human race
You're not looking at a king
You're looking at an ace

Farley:
Oooh, I've got the sight
And I've seen the light
And I'm gonna see the coming day
When the sun in the sky
Is a spotlight just for me

I want to take my time
And rock some rhyme
Oh, it's gonna take your breath away
You'll be the front page rage of the age
Just wait and see

Farley with his factory employees:
You're not just looking at a fast food king
Just another well known face
You're not looking at a king of anything
I'm gonna shoot for the moon
I'm gonna play high noon
I'm gonna take on the entire human race
You're not looking at a king
You're looking at an ace
You're looking at an ace
You're looking at an ace
