OVER AT THE FRANKENSTEIN PLACE In the velvet darkness Of the blackest night Burning bright-there's a guiding star No matter what or who you are. There's a light. Over at the Frankenstein place. There's a light. Burning in the fireplace. There's a light...light in the darkness Of everybody's life. Darkness must go Down the river of nights dreaming Flow morphia slow let the sun and light Come streaming into my life Into my life. There's a light. Over at the Frankenstein place. There's a light. Burning in the fireplace. There's a light...a light In the darkness of everybody's life. ****TIME WARP**** It's astounding. Time is fleeting. Madness takes its toll. Ahh. But listen closely Not for very much longer 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. Let's do the Time Warp again. Let's do the Time Warp again. CHORUS-- 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. 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--with voyeuristic intension. Well secluded I see all With a bit of a mind flip You're in for a time slip 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 having a think When a snake of a guy Gave me an evil wink Well it shook me up, it 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 Let's do the Time Warp again. Let's do the Time Warp again. CHORUS-- 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. Let's do the Time Warp again. Let's do the Time Warp again. Ah! Oh Oh! Ahhh! Let's do the Time Warp again. Let's do the Time Warp again. CHORUS-- 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. Let's do the Time Warp again. Let's do the Time Warp again. SWEET TRANSVESTITE How d'you do I See you've met my Faithful handyman He's just a little brought down Because when you knocked He thought you were the candyman 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 Transexual Transylvania. Ah, ha. Let me show you around, maybe play you a sound You both look like you're pretty groovy (Bullshit) Or if you want something visual that's not too abysmal We could take in an old Steve Reeves movie. (Who the hell is Steve Reeves?) I'm glad we caught you at home. Could we use your phone? (Castles don't have phones, asshole) We're both in a bit of a hurry. Right! We'll just say where we are, Then go back to the car, We don't want to be any worry.

Ah, ha. Why don'tcha stay for the night? Night (<--Night) Or maybe a bite Bite (<--Bite) I could show you my favorite obsession (sex) I've been making a man With blond hair and a tan And he's good for relieving my (sexual) tension. I'm just a sweet transvestite From Transexual Transylvania. Ah, ha. Hit it, yea! I'm just a sweet transvestite Sweet Transvestite. From Transexual Transylvania...Ha ha. So come up to the lab And see what's on the slab I see you shiver with antici..(SAY IT! SAY IT! SAY IT!)..pation But maybe the rain. Is really to blame So i'll remove the cause-(But what about the symptom?) But not the symptom. THE SWORD OF DAMOCLES The sword of Damocles is hanging over my head And I've got the feeling someone's Going to be cutting the thread Oh woe is me-my life is a misery Oh can't you see I'm at the start Of a pretty big downder. I woke up this morning with a start when I fell out of bed That ain't no crime. And left from my dreaming was a feeling of unnamable dread. That ain't no crime. My high is low-I'm dressed up with no place to go. And all i know is I'm at the start of a pretty big downer. Sha la la la That ain't no crime Oh no no no no Sha la la la That ain't no crime Oh no no no no Sha la la la That ain't no crime That ain't no crime The sword of Damocles is hanging over my head That ain't no crime And I've got the feeling that someone's going to be cutting the thread. That ain't no crime Oh woe is me-my life is a mystery Oh can't you see that I'm at the start of a pretty big downer. Oh...oh...oh. Sha la la la That ain't no crime Sha la la la That ain't no crime No no no no. Sha la la la That ain't no crime That ain't no crime Sha la la la That ain't no crime No no no no Sha la la la That ain't no crime No. No. CHARLES ATLAS SONG A weakling weighing ninety-eight pounds Will get sand in his face when kicked to the gound. (<--in the balls) And soon in the gym With a determined chin The sweat from his pores As he works for his cause Will make him glisten and gleam And with massage and just a little bit of steam He'll be pink and quite clean. He'll be a strong man Oh, Honey-- But the wrong man. He'll eat nutritious high protein And swallow raw eggs (eiw!) Try to build up his shoulders His chest, arms and legs Such as effort If he only knew of my plan. In just seven days (and seven nights) I can make you a man. (<--I can make you a Fag, just like your dad.) He'll do press-ups and chin-ups Do the snatch, clean and jerk. He thinks dynamic tension must be hard work. Such strenuous living I just don't understand. When in just seven days (and seven nights)-oh baby I can make you a man. (<--I can make you a Fag, just like your dad.) WHATEVER HAPPENED TO SATURDAY NIGHT Whatever happened to Saturday night When you dressed up sharp and You felt all right. 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 and roll show And we climbed in the back seat And we really had a good time. Hot patootie bless my soul I really love that rock and roll. (<--Sex, drugs, and Rock and roll.) Hot patootie bless my soul I really love that rock and roll. (<--Sex, drugs, and Rock and roll.) Hot patootie bless my soul I really love that rock and roll. (<--Sex, drugs, and Rock and roll.) Hot patootie bless my soul I really love that rock and roll. (<--Sex, drugs, and Rock and roll.) Hot patootie bless my soul I really love that rock and roll. (<--Sex, drugs, and Rock and roll.) (Eat shit! And die!) My head used to swim From the perfume I smelled My hands kind of fumbled with Her white plastic belt I'd tase her baby pink lipstick and That's when I'd melt. And she whispered 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 your arm around your girl You tried sing along It felt pretty good, whooo--really had A good time. Hot patootie bless my soul I really love that rock and roll. (<--Sex, drugs, and Rock and roll.) Hot patootie bless my soul I really love that rock and roll. (<--Sex, drugs, and Rock and roll.)

REPRISE CHARLES ATLAS SONG But a deltoid and a bicep A hot groin and a tricep Makes me-ooooh-shake Makes me want to take Charles Atlas by the hand. (<--by the balls) In just seven days (and seven nights) I can make you a man. (<--I can make you a Fag, just like your Dad.) I don't want no dissension Just dynamic tension I'm a muscle fan. In just seven days (and seven nights) I can make you a man. (<--I can make you a Fag, just like your Dad.) Dig it if you can. In just seven days (and seven nights) I can make you a man. TOUGH-A TOUCH-A TOUCH-A TOUCH ME I was feeling done in Couldn't win I'd only ever kissed before. You mean she- Uh huh. I thought there's no use getting Into heavy petting It only leads to trouble And seat wetting. Now all I want to know Is how to go I've tasted blood and I want more. More, more, more! I'll put up no resistance I want to stay the distance I've got an itch to scratch I need assistance. Touch-a touch-a touch-a touch me, I wanna be dirty. Thrill me, chill me, fulfill me, Creature of the night. Then if anything grows While you pose, I'll oil you up and rub you down Down down down And that's just one small fraction Of the main attraction You need a friendly hand, Oh, and I need action.

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. I'm just seven hours old. (And can't dance) Truly beautiful to behold And somebody should be told (you can't sing) My libido hasn't been controlled Now the only thing i've come to trust (is Janet's Bust) Is an orgasmic rush of lust (same thing) Rose tints my world keeps me Safe from my trouble and pain. 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. Whoa- Here it comes again.
