Lyrics

These lyrics are from the original London production: The Rocky Horror Show

Riff Raff:
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, and the void would be calling

Riff Raff, Magenta, Columbia, and company:
Let's do the Time Warp again
Let's do the Time Warp again

Narrator:
It's just a jump to the left

Riff Raff, Magenta, Columbia, and company:
And then a step to the right

Narrator:
And with your hand on your hip

Riff Raff, Magenta & Columbia:
You bring your knees in tight
But it's the pelvic thrust
That really drive you insane

Riff Raff, Magenta, Columbia, and company:
Let's do the Time Warp again
Let's do the Time Warp again

Magenta:
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 into the time slip
Nothing can ever be the same
You're spaced out on sensation
Like you're under sedation

Riff Raff, Magenta, Columbia, and company:
Let's do the Time Warp again
Let's do the Time Warp again

Columbia:
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
He stared at me and I felt a change
Time meant nothing, never would again

Riff Raff, Magenta, Columbia, and company:
Let's do the Time Warp again
Let's do the Time Warp again

Narrator:
It's just a jump to the left

Riff Raff, Magenta, Columbia, and company:
And then a step to the right

Narrator:
And with your hand on your hip

Riff Raff, Magenta & Columbia:
You bring your knees in tight
But it's the pelvic thrust
That really drive you insane

Riff Raff, Magenta, Columbia, and company:
Let's do the Time Warp again
Let's do the Time Warp again

These lyrics are from the US productions L.A. (Roxy) 1974 & Broadway 1975

Yeah that nothing can ever be the same

Wow you're spaced out on sensation
You're under sedation
