Lyrics

Dr. Frank-N-Furter:
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; Didn't you, freaky?

Don't get strung out by the way that 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

Let me show you around, maybe play you a sound
You look like you're both pretty groovy
Or if you want something visual that's not too abysmal
We could take in an old Steve Reeves movie

Brad (talking):
I'm glad we caught you at home, could we use your phone?
We're both in a bit of a hurry
We'll just say where we are, then go back to our car
We don't want to be any worry

Dr. Frank-N-Furter:
You got caught with a flat, well, how about that?
Well babies, don't you panic
By the light of the night when it all seems alright
I'll get you a satanic mechanic

I'm just a Sweet Transvestite; Whip it up Magenta, baby!
From Transexual, Transylvania

Dr. Frank-N-Furter (company):
Why don't you stay for the night? (Night) Or maybe a bite? (Bite)
I could show you my favourite obsession (Oh!)
I've been making a man with blond hair and a tan
And he's good for relieving my te-te-te-tennsion (Oh!)

Dr. Frank-N-Furter:
I'm just a Sweet Transvestite
From Transexual, Transylvania

Dr. Frank-N-Furter (company):
Hit it, hit it!
I'm just a Sweet Transvestite (Sweet Transvestite)
From Transexual, (con company: Transylvania)

Dr. Frank-N-Furter:
So come up to the lab
And see what's on the slab
I see you shiver with anticipation
But maybe the rain
Isn't really to blame
So I'll remove the cause
But not the symptom

Dr. Frank-N-Furter:
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; Didn't you, freaky?

Don't get strung out by the way that 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

Let me show you around, maybe play you a sound
You look like you're both pretty groovy
Or if you want something visual that's not too abysmal
We could take in an old Steve Reeves movie

Brad (talking):
I'm glad we caught you at home, could we use your phone?
You see, we're both in a bit of a hurry
We'll just say where we are, then go back to our car
We don't want to be any worry
