  • It's astounding
    Time is fleeting
    Madness, takes its toll
    But listen closely

    Not for very much longer
    I've got to, keep control
    I remember don' the time warp
    Drinking those moments when

    The blackness would hit me,
    And the void would be calling
    Let's do the time warp again
    Let's do the time warp again

    It's just a jump to the left
    And then a step to the right
    With your hands on your hips
    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

    It's so dreamy
    Oh fantasy free me
    So you can't see me
    No, not at all

    In another dimension
    With voyeristic intention
    Well secluded, I see all
    With a bit of a mind flip

    You're into the time slip
    And nothing, can ever be the same
    You're spaced out on sensation
    Like you're under sedation

    Let's do the time warp again
    Let's do the time warp again
    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-a me up, he took me by surprise
    He had a pick up truck and the devil's eyes
    He stared at me and I felt a change

    Time meant nothing, never would again
    Let's do the time warp again
    Let's do the time warp again
    It's just a jump to the left

    And then a step to the right
    With your hands on your hips
    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
