"Little Black Dress" 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":

Cosmo McKinley:
Ever since I was a little boy
Dressing up has always been my greatest joy
But when it's time to be discreet
There's one thing you just can't beat
And that's a strapless backless
Classical little black dress

Well first you go rip rip rip
Then you go snip snip snip
Then you whip in a zip zip zip
And split it up to the hip hip hip
And as you strip strip strip
You shiver, and quiver, for that soft caress
As you slip slip slip
Into that little black dress

Bert Schnick:
Ever since I was the eina kliena heiren
It was the cordon bleu
For which I am most caring
And the one taste treat so sweet
That really can't be beat
Is what we have here, how you are, caviar
That little black mess

Janet Majors:
Well first you go rip rip rip
Then you go snip snip snip
Then you whip in a zip zip zip
Split it up to the hip hip hip
And as you strip strip strip
Oh you quiver, shiver, for that soft caress
As you slip slip slip
Into that little black dress

Janet (Cosmo, Bert & Nation):
That minimal (Minimal)
Criminal (Criminal)
Siniful little black dress

Nation McKinely:
Let's face it Mac that basic black is coming back

Bert:
Let's face it Mac that basic black is coming back

Nation & Bert:
Let's face it Mac that basic black is coming back

Janet (Cosmo, Bert & Nation):
That minimal (Minimal)
Criminal (Criminal)
Siniful

All:
Little black dress!

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

Cosmo McKinley:
Ever since I was a little boy
Dressing up has always been my greatest joy
In a uniform shawl or smock
An overall tux or frock

Each of them has brought me happiness
But when it's time to be discreet
There's one thing you just can't beat
That's a strapless backless
Classical little black dress

Well first you go rip rip rip
Then you go snip snip snip
Then you whip in a zip zip zip
And split it up to the hip hip hip
And as you strip strip strip
You shiver, and quiver, for that soft caress
As you slip slip slip
Into that little black dress

Everett Scott:
Ever since I was the einer kleiner Herren
It was domestic science for which I am most care-en...
My roast lamb or puree soup
Or my toast 'n' ham a la guadeloupe

They were cordon bleu prepared with great success
But the one taste treat so sweet
That really can't be beat...
Is what we have ja? how you are?...Caviar!
That little black mess

Janet Majors:
Well first you go rip rip rip
Then you go snip snip snip
Then you whip in a zip zip zip
Split it up to the hip hip hip
And as you strip strip strip

Nation McKinley:
You quiver, shiver, for that soft caress
As you slip slip slip
Into that little black dress

Janet:
That minimal

Cosmo:
Criminal

Nation:
Siniful

Scott:
Little black dress

All:
Let's face it Mac that basic black is coming back
Let's face it Mac that basic black is coming back
Let's face it Mac that basic black is coming back

Janet:
That minimal

Cosmo:
Criminal

Nation:
Siniful

All:
Little black dress!
