Facts:
  • The Time Warp is a dance featured in the rock musical, The Rocky Horror Show and the cult film The Rocky Horror Picture Show, performed during the chorus of the song of the same name. The song is both an example and a parody of the dance song genre in which much of the content of the song is given over to dance step instructions. The dance is one of the major audience-participation activities during screenings of the film and performances of the show. It has become a popular song beyond the reaches of the film and show, and is often played at dances and weddings. Cover versions have been recorded by such artists as Alvin and the Chipmunks, Black Lace, Damian, Groovie Ghoulies, Jive Bunny and the Mastermixers, and Sebastian Bach of the glam metal band Skid Row, as well as an Italian adaptation by Elio e le Storie Tese.

  • Song Lyrics:
    RiffRaff:
    It's astounding;
    Time is fleeting;
    Madness takes its toll.
    But listen closely...

    Magenta:
    Not for very much longer.

    RiffRaff:
    I've got to keep control.
    I remember doing the time-warp
    Drinking those moments when
    The Blackness would hit me

    RiffRaff:
    And the void would be calling...

    Transylvanians:
    Let's do the time-warp again.
    Let's do the time-warp again.

    Criminologist:
    It's just a jump to the left.

    All:
    And then a step to the right.

    Criminologist:
    Put your hands on your hips.

    All:
    And 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.

    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 see all.


    RiffRaff:
    With a bit of a mind flip

    Magenta:
    You're into the time slip.

    RiffRaff:
    And nothing can ever be the same.

    Magenta:
    You're spaced out on sensation.

    RiffRaff:
    Like you're under sedation!

    All:
    Let's do the time-warp again.
    Let's do the time-warp again.

    Columbia:
    Well I was walking down the street just a-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 pickup truck, and the devil's eyes.
    He stared at me and I felt a change.
    Time meant nothing, never would again.

    All:
    Let's do the time-warp again.
    Let's do the time-warp again.

    Criminologist:
    It's just a jump to the left.

    All:
    And then a step to the right.

    Criminologist:
    Put your hands on your hips.

    All:
    And 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.
