WHATEVER HAPPENED TO SATURDAY NIGHT

Eddie: One, two
One, two three

Whatever happened to Saturday night?
When you dressed up sharp and you felt alright?
It don’t seem the same since cosmic light
Came into my life and I thought I was divine

I used to go for a ride with a chick who’d go
And listen to the music on the radio
A saxophone was blowing on a Rock ‘n’ Roll Show
And you climbed in the back and you really had a good time

Eddie & Chorus: Hot Patootie bless my soul–I really love that Rock and Roll
Hot Patootie bless my soul–I really love that Rock and Roll
Hot Patootie bless my soul–I really love that Rock and Roll
Hot Patootie bless my soul–I really love that Rock and Roll....

Eddie: My head used to swim from the perfume I smelt
My hands kind of fumbled with her white plastic belt
I’d taste her baby pink lipstick and that’s when I’d melt
And she’d whisper in my ear tonight she really was mine

Get back in front and put some hair oil on
Buddy Holly was singing his very last song
With you arm round your girl you’d try to sing along
You felt pretty good cause you’d really had a good time

Eddie & Chorus: Hot Patootie bless my soul–I really love that Rock and Roll
Hot Patootie bless my soul–I really love that Rock and Roll
Hot Patootie bless my soul–I really love that Rock and Roll
Hot Patootie bless my soul–I really love that Rock and Roll

Hot Patootie bless my soul–I really love that Rock and Roll
Hot Patootie bless my soul–I really love that Rock and Roll
Hot Patootie bless my soul–I really love that Rock and Roll
Hot Patootie bless my soul–I really love that Rock and Roll....

EDDIE’S TEDDY

Scotty: From the day he was born, he was trouble
He was a thorn in his mother’s side
She tried in vain
Narrator: but he never caused her nothing but shame
He left home the day she died

From the day he was gone, all he wanted
Was a rockin’ roll, porn and a motor bike
Frank:Vroooom, vroooommm!
Shootin’ up junk
Narrator: he was a low down cheap little punk
Taking everyone for a ride

All: When Eddie said he didn’t like his teddy
You knew he was a no good kid
When he threatened your life with a switch blade knife
Frank: What a guy
Janet: Makes you cry
Scotty: And I did

Colombia: Everybody shoved him
I very nearly loved him
I said: Hey listen to me, stay sane inside insanity!
But he shut the door and threw away the key

Scotty: But he must have been drawn into something
Making him warn me in a note which reads
All:What’s it say, what’s it say?
I’m out of my head
Narrator: Hurry or I may be dead!
They mustn’t carry out their evil deeds

All: When Eddie said he didn’t like his teddy
You knew he was a no good kid
When he threatened your life with a switch blade knife
Frank: What a guy
Janet: Makes you cry
Scotty: And I did

All: When Eddie said he didn’t like his teddy
Oh you knew he was a no good kid
When he threatened your life with a switch blade knife
Frank: What a guy
Janet: Makes you cry
Scotty: And I did
All:Who ooh ooh
Frank: What a guy
Janet: Makes you cry
Scotty: And I did
All:Hey hey hey
Frank: What a guy
Janet: Makes you cry
Scotty: And I did
All:Yeah yeah yeah

Frank: What a guy
Janet: Makes you cry
Scotty: And I did
All:Eddie....

PLANET SHMANET JANET

Frank: O.K. it’s startime
Riff Raff set the sonic transducer on programme 8
Riff Raff: programme 8!
And secure all levels at zero
Riff Raff: zero!
Magenta:Relax!

Scotty: You won’t find Earth people quite the easy mark you imagine
This sonic transducer–it is, I suppose, some kind of audio-vibratory, physiomolecular transport device

Frank:You better believe it baby
Brad:You mean?
Scotty: Yes, Brad, it’s something we ourselves have been working on for quite some time
But it seems our friend here has found a means of perfecting it
A device that is capable of breaking down solid matter
And then projecting it through space
And who knows, perhaps even time itself!

Janet: Doctor Scott! Do you mean he’s gonna send us to another planet?

Frank: Planet!
Shmanet!
Janet!

Tell you once, won’t tell you twice
You’d better wise up–Janet Weiss
Y’apple pie don’t taste too nice
You’d better wise up–Janet Weiss

I’ve laid the seed
It should be all you need
You’re as sensual
As a pencil
Wound up like an ‘E’ or first string
When we made it
Did ya hear a bell ring?

Y’ got a block, take my advice
You’d better wise up–Janet Weiss

The transducer will seduce ya
It’s something you’ll get used to
A mental mind-fuck can be nice

You’d better wise up–Janet Weiss
You’d better wise up–Build your thighs up
You’d better wise up

Narrator: And then she cries out
Janet: Stop!!

ROSE TINT MY WORLD

Colombia: It was great when it all began, I was a regular Frank fan
But it was over when he had the plan to start working on a muscle-man
Now the only thing that gives me hope is my love of a certain dope
Rose tints my world, keeps me safe from my trouble and pain

Rocky: I’m just seven hours old, truly beautiful to behold
And somebody should be told: my libido hasn’t been controlled
Now the only thing I’ve come to trust is an orgasmic rush of lust
Rose tints my world, keeps me safe from my trouble and pain

Brad: It’s beyond me
Help me mommy!
I’ll be good, you’ll see
Take this dream away

What’s this? Let’s see
I feel sexy!
What’s come over me?
Here it comes again

Janet: I feel released
Bad times deceased
My confidence has increased
Reality is here

The game has been disbanded
My mind has been expanded
It’s a gas that Frankie’s landed
His lust is so sincere

Frank: What ever happened to Fay Wray
That delicate satin draped frame
As it clung to her thigh
How I started to cry
‘Cause I wanted to be dressed just the same

Give yourself over to absolute pleasure
Swim the warm waters of sins of the flesh
Erotic nightmares beyond any measure
And sensual daydreams to treasure forever

Can’t you just see it?
Ooh ooh

Don’t dream it–be it...
Don’t dream it–be it...
Don’t dream it–be it...

Don’t dream it–be it...
Don’t dream it–be it...
Don’t dream it–be it...
(repeat, all join in)

Scotty (spoken): We’ve got to, get out of this trap
Before this decadence saps our wills
I’ve–I’ve got to be strong and try, and try to hang on
Or my mind may well snap
And my life will be lived for the thrills

Brad: It’s beyond me
Help me mommy
Janet: God bless Lilly St. Cyr...

Frank: MY MY MY MY
M-M-M-MY MY MY MY
MY MY MY–MY

I’m a wild and an untamed thing, I’m a bee with a deadly sting
Get a hit, and your mind goes ping, your heart’ll thump and your blood will sing
So let the party and the sounds rock on, gonna shake it till the life has gone
Rose tint my world, keep me safe from my trouble and pain

All: We’re wild and an untamed things, we’re a bee with a deadly sting
Get a hit, and your mind goes ping, your heart’ll thump and your blood will sing
So let the party and the sounds rock on, gonna shake it till the life has gone
Rose tint my world, keep me safe from my trouble and pain

We’re wild and an untamed things, we’re a bee with a deadly sting
Get a hit, and your mind goes ping, your heart’ll thump and your blood will sing
So let the party and the sounds rock on, gonna shake it till the life has gone
Rose tint my world, keep me safe from my trouble and pain

Riff Raff: Frank ‘n’ Furter–it’s all over!
Your mission is a failure, your life style’s too extreme
I’m your new commander–you now are my prisoner
We return to Transylvania, pepare the transit beam....
