Your first time watching The Rocky Horror Picture Show live is a little like losing your virginity—it’s awkward, requires a lubricant (booze works for both) and will only get better with practice. But unlike your first sexual encounter, a night with Rocky promises to be an unforgettable experience—filled with outrageous costumes, wild dancing and a whole lot of singing. For all of you Rocky Horror virgins catching a mirror show for the first time this Halloween (that’s when actors perform on stage while the movie plays in the background), DYR has a list of props and a guide in antici—pation. Trust us, this won’t hurt one bit.

Dress the Part

Don’t be the only schmuck wearing a suit to the theater—Rocky Horror is not that kind of a show. This is your opportunity to confidently wear a corset and garter belt outside of the bedroom, while taking comfort in knowing you probably won’t be the only one. For virgins, we recommend something a little tamer and easier to pull off, like dressing up as a Transylvanian. But showing up as Magenta or Riff Raff will totally up your costume cred.

Prepare to Show Off Your “V” Card

You’ll have to wear your virgin status proudly, newbies, as a fellow audience member will typically draw a “V” on your forehead with red lipstick and have you repeat a racy oath or perform some sort of embarrassing ritual, which varies by theater.

  • Rice
  • A newspaper
  • Water gun
  • Flashlight

“SCIENCE FICTION, DOUBLE FEATURE”

Michael Rennie was I’ll
The Day The Earth Stood Still
But he told us where we stand
Flash Gordon was there in silver underwear
Claude Reins was The Invisible Man

Then something went wrong
For Fay Wray and King Kong
They got caught in a celluloid jam
Then at a deadly pace It Come From Outer Space
And this is how the message ran

Science fiction, double feature
Doctor X will build a creature
See androids fighting Brad and Janet
Anne Francis stars in Forbidden Planet

Oh oh oh oh oh
At the late night
Double feature, picture show (Ow)

I knew Leo G. Carrol was over a barrel
When Tarantula took to the hills
And I really got hot when I saw Jeanette Scott
Fight a Triffid that spits poison and kills

Dana Andrews said Prunes gave him the Runes
And passing them used lots of skills
But When Worlds Collide
Said George Pal to his bride
I’m gonna give you some terrible thrills, like a

Science fiction, double feature
Doctor X will build a creature
See androids fighting Brad and Janet
Anne Francis stars in Forbidden Planet

Oh oh oh oh oh, at the late night
Double feature, picture show
I want to go, oh oh oh oh, to the late night
Double feature, picture show
By R.K.O., oh oh oh oh, to the late night
Double feature, picture show
In the back row, oh oh oh oh, to the late night
Double feature, picture show

“OVER AT THE FRANKENSTEIN PLACE”

YouTube Video

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.

I can see the flag fly, I can see the rain
Just the same, there has got to be
Something better here for you and me.

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.

The darkness must go down the river of nights dreaming
Flow Morpheus flow, 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, light in the darkness of everybody’s life.

“Dammit, Janet!”

“Touch-A, Touch-A Touch Me”

YouTube Video

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, fulfil 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 and I need action

Touch-a touch-a touch-a touch me, I wanna be dirty
Thrill me, chill me, fulfil me
Creature of the night

Oh, touch-a touch-a touch-a touch me, I wanna be dirty
Thrill me, chill me, fulfil me
Creature of the night
(Creature of the night)
(Creature of the night?)
(Creature of the night)
(Creature of the night)
(Creature of the night)
(Creature of the night)
(Creature of the night)

“I CAN MAKE YOU A MAN”

YouTube Video

A weakling weighing ninety-eight pounds
Will get sand in his face
When kicked to the ground
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
Try to build up his shoulders
His chest, arms, and legs
Such an effort
If he only knew of my plan
In just seven days

I can make you a man

“SWEET TRANSVESTITE”

YouTube Video

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 candy man

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, ha ha

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

I’m glad we caught you at home
Could we use your phone?
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

Well, you got caught with a flat, well, how about that?
Well, babies, don’t you panic
By the light of the night, it’ll all seem alright
I’ll get you a satanic mechanic

I’m just a sweet transvestite
From Transexual, Transylvania, ha ha

Why don’t you stay for the night? (night)
Or maybe a bite? (bite)
I could show you my favorite obsession
I’ve been making a man
With blond hair and a tan
And he’s good for relieving my tension

I’m just a sweet transvestite
From Transexual, Transylvania, ha ha
Hit it, hit it, 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-
-Pation
But maybe the rain
Is really to blame
So I’ll remove the cause
But not the symptom

“HOT PATOOTIE – BLESS MY SOUL”

YouTube Video

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, 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
We climbed in the back seat, really had a good time

Hot patootie, bless my soul
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

My head used to swim from the perfume I smelled
My hands kinda fumbled with her white plastic belt
I’d taste her baby pink lipstick and that’s when I’d melt
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 your arms around your girl, you try to sing along
It felt pretty good, woo
Really had a good time

Hot patootie, bless my soul
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
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
