Lyrics and Chords

[Rocky Horror Picture Show]

How d'ya do, I
See you've met my
Faithful handy man
He's just a little brought down because
When you knocked
He thought you were the candy man

/ E - / G - / A - EG GA / :

Don't get strung out
By the way I look
Don't judge a book by its cover
I'm not much of a man
By the light of day
But by night I'm one hell of a lover

I'm just a sweet transvestite
From Transsexual Transylvania, ah-ha

/ B - / A - ED E / 

Let me show you around
Maybe play you a sound
You look like you're both pretty groovy
But if you want something visual
That's not too abysmal
We could take in an old Steve Reeves movie

I'm glad we caught you at home
Could we use your phone
We're both in a bit of a hurry
We'll just say where we are
Then go back to the car
We don't want to be any worry

Well, you got caught with a flat, well
How 'bout that
Well, babies, don't you panic
By the light of the night
It'll all seem all right
I'll get you a satanic mechanic


Why don't you stay for the night
Or maybe a bite
I could show you my favorite obsession
I've been making a man
With blonde hair and a tan
And he's good for relieving my tension

{Refrain twice}

So come up to the lab
And see what's on the slab
I see you shiver with antici
But maybe the rain
Is really to blame
So I'll remove the cause
But not the symptom
