Time Warp

Words & Music:

Rocky Horror Picture Show


E                         F#    E   D       A         E

It's astounding.  Time is fleeting. Madness takes its toll.

But listen closely and not for very much longer.

I've got to keep control.


I remember doing the Time Warp, reaching those moments when

The blackness would hit me and a voice would be calling:

C      G      D    A     E

"Let's do the Time Warp again!"



[n.c.]                  B                           E

It's just a jump to the left and then a step to the right.

B                                                     E

With your hands on your hips, you bring your knees in tight.

A                                                    E

But, it's the pelvic thrust that really drives you insane.

C      G      D    A     E

"Let's do the Time Warp again!"



Well, I was walking down the street just having a think

When a heck of a guy gave me an evil wink.


It shook me, it took me by surprise.


He had a pickup truck and a devil's eyes.

   B                       A

He stared at me and I felt ashamed


Time ain't nothing - never was again.

"Let's do the Time Warp again!"
