The sword of Damocles is hanging over my head
And I've got the feeling someone's gonna be cutting the thread
Oh, woe is me, my life is a misery
Oh, can't you see that I'm at the start of a pretty big downer?

I woke up this morning with a start when I fell out of bed
And left from my dreaming was a feeling of unnameable dread
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
That ain't no crime

Rocky Horror you need peace of mind
And I want to tell you that you're doing just fine
You're the product of another time
And feeling down, well that's no crime...

The sword of Damocles is hanging over my head
And I've got the feeling someone's gonna be cutting the thread
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?

Sha-la-la-la that ain't no crime
That ain't no crime
