"The Time Warp" is the famed dance number from the movie The Rocky Horror Picture Show. A CTY-unique dance accompanies this song. Traditionally, when played at the Second Saturday dance at Lancaster, it is followed by "Sweet Transvestite," and Alcovian actors dressed in costume act out the roles of Brad, Janet, Riff Raff, Columbia, Magenta, and Dr. Frank N. Furter. Occassionally, they are joined by a Criminologist.

At Skidmore Session 2, two nevermore girls dance together in the middle of circle formed by other dancers.

Lyrics

[Riff Raff]: It's astounding, time is fleeting
Madness takes its toll
But listen closely, [Magenta]: not for very much longer
[Riff]: I've got to keep control

I remember doing the Time Warp
Drinking those moments when
The blackness would hit me
[Both]: And the void would be calling
[Chorus]: Let's do the Time Warp again!
Let's do the Time Warp again!

Chorus: [Criminologist]: It's just a jump to the left
[Chorus]: And then a step to the right
[Criminologist]: With your hands on your hips
[Chorus]: 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!

[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

[Riff]: With a bit of a mind flip
[Magenta]: You're there in the time slip
[Riff]: And nothing can ever be the same
[Magenta]: You're spaced out on sensation,
[Riff]: like you're under sedation!
[Chorus]: 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 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
[Chorus]: Let's do the Time Warp again!
Let's do the Time Warp again!
