  • Lyrics from the 2015 individual remastered version of the 1975 original film song

Frank-N-Furter:
My, my, my, my, my, my, my, my
My, my, my, my – my, my
I'm a wild and untamed thing
I'm a bee with a deadly sting
You get a hit and your mind goes ping
Your heart will pump and your blood will sing
So let the party and the sound rock on
We're gonna shake it til the life has gone
Rose tints my world keeps me safe from my trouble and pain

Frank and company:
We are wild and untamed things
We're a bee with a deadly sting
You get a hit and your mind goes ping
Your heart will pump and your blood will sing
So let the party and the sound rock on
We're gonna shake it til the life has gone
Rose tints my world keeps me safe from my trouble and pain

We are wild and untamed things
We're a bee with a deadly sting
You get a hit and your mind goes ping
Your heart will pump and your blood will sing
So let the party and the sound rock on
We're gonna shake it til the life has gone, gone, gone
Rose tints my world keeps me safe from my trouble and pain

Riff Raff:
Frank-N-Furter it's all over
Your mission is a failure, your lifestyle's too extreme
I'm your new commander, you now are my prisoner
We return to Transylvania, prepare the transit beam

  • Lyrics from the 2016 TV reimagination film:

Frank-N-Furter:
My, my, my, my, my, my, my, my
My, my, my, my – Uh
I'm a wild and untamed thing
I'm a bee with a deadly sting
You get a hit and your mind goes ping
Your heart will pump and your blood will sing
So let the party and the sound rock on
We're gonna shake it til the life has gone
Rose tints my world keeps me safe from my trouble and pain

Frank and company:
We are wild and untamed things
We're a bee with a deadly sting
You get a hit and your mind goes ping
Your heart will pump and your blood will sing
So let the party and the sound rock on
We're gonna shake it til the life has gone
Rose tints my world keeps me safe from my trouble and pain

Dr. Scott:
Oh yeah, oh yeah, oh yeah, oh yeah

Frank and company:
We are wild and untamed things
We're a bee with a deadly sting
You get a hit and your mind goes ping
Your heart will pump and your blood will sing

Company:
So let the party and the sound rock on
We're gonna shake it til the life has gone, gone, gone

Frank and company:
Rose tints my world keeps me safe from my trouble and pain

Riff Raff:
Frank-N-Furter it's all over
Your mission is a failure, your lifestyle's too extreme
I'm your new commander, you now are my prisoner
We return to Transylvania, prepare the transit beam
