In 1975 a little known movie called The Rocky Horror Picture Show was born and with it came a cult following and a funky little dance called the Time Warp. I never thought that in 31 years that a movie would have such a following and now I get to tell people how much it means to me.


Tim Curry as the Sweet Transvestite Dr Frank-N-Furter.



I never thought that a man could look so attractive in a corsette but Tim Curry takes the cake. He plays Dr Frank-N-Furter, Frankenfurter get it?, a transvestite who lives in a house full of freaks and weirdos including his butler and maid and everyone else in the house.

The Time Warp



The Time Warp is a really easy dance to do. The dance steps are referred to in the song's chorus.

The lyrics.

It's astounding
time is fleeting
madness takes its toll
but listen closely
not for very much longer
I've got to take control

I remember doing the time warp
drinking those moments
the blackness would hit me
and the void would be calling

Let's do the Time Warp again
Let's do the Time Warp again

It's just a jump to the left
then you step to the right
put your hands on your hips
then bring your knees in tight
but it's the pelvic thrust
that really drives you insane

Let's do the Time Warp again
Let's do the Time Warp again

It's so dreamy oh fantasy free me
so you can't see me no not at all
In another dimension voyeuristic intention
Well secluded I see all

With a bit of a mind flip
you're into a time trip
and nothing can ever be the same
You're spaced out on sensation
like you're under sedation

Let's do the Time Warp again
Let's do the Time Warp again

Well I was walking down the street
just a having a think
when a snake of a guy gave me
a mean evil wink

He shoook-a me up
he took me by surprise
he was staring at me
He had a pick up truck
and the devil's eyes

He stared at me and I felt a change
time meant nothing, it never would again

Let's do the Time Warp again
Let's do the Time Warp again

It's just a jump to the left
then a step to the right
you put your hands on your hips
and pull your knees in tight
but it's the pelvic thrust
that really drives you insane

Let's do the Time Warp again
Let's do the Time Warp again
