TITLE: The Time Warp
Lyrics and Chords

[Rocky Horror Picture Show]

Riff Raff: It's astounding
Time is fleeting
Madness takes its toll
But listen closely
Magenta: Not for very much longer
Riff Raff: 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

/ A - / B - / G D A - / : / A - / B - / 

Let's do the time warp again (2x)

/ FC GD A - / /

It's just a jump to the left
And then a step to the right
With your hands on your hips
You bring your knees in tight
But it's the pelvic thrust
That really drives you insane

/ E - / A - / E - / A - / D - / A - /

All: Let's do the time warp again (2x)

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
Riff Raff: With a bit of a mind flip
Magenta: You're there in the time slip
Riff Raff: And nothing can ever be the same
Magenta: You're spaced out on sensation
Riff Raff: Like you're under sedation

All: Let's do the time warp again (2x)

Well I was walking down the street just having a think
When a snake of a guy gave me an evil wink
He shook-a me up, he 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

/ A - / - A7 - / D - / A - / E D / A - / 

All: Let's do the time warp again (2x)


All: Let's do the time warp again (2x)
