Letra (Shock Treatment)

Cosmo McKinley:
I'm not a locum with motive to suture myself
I've been a cynic for too many years
Playing doctor and nursey can be good for your health
I've seen clinics with those gimmicks in Tangiers

Nation McKinley:
But if you open your heart to a smooth operator
He'll take you for all that you've got
He'll hand you a curse that'll be with you later
It'll shake you the way he takes off like a shot

Cosmo (con Nation y Ansalong):
You need a bit of (Ooooh...Shock Treatment)
Gets you jumping like a real live wire
Need a bit of (Ooooh...Shock Treatment)

Cosmo:
So look out Mister, don't you blow your last resistor
For a vista that'll mystify ya

Ansalong:
You're blinded by romance, you're blinded by science
You're condition is critically grave
But don't expect mercy from such an alliance
Suspicion of traditions so new wave

Cosmo (con Nation, Ansalong y Janet):
You need a bit of (Ooooh...Shock Treatment)
Gets you jumping like a real live wire

Cosmo (con Nation, Ansalong, Janet y Bert):
Need a bit of (Ooooh...Shock Treatment)

Cosmo:
So look out Mister, don't you blow your last resistor
For a vista that'll certify ya, fy ya, fy ya, fy ya

Cosmo (con Nation, Ansalong, Janet, Bert, Harry y Emily):
You need a bit of (Ooooh...Shock Treatment)
Gets you jumping like a real live wire
You need a bit of (Ooooh...Shock Treatment)

Cosmo:
So look out Mister, don't you blow your last resistor
For a vista that'll certify ya, fy ya, fy ya, fy ya

Diferencias con otras versiones:

  • La canción es original del guión "Rocky Horror Shows His Heels", llamada ahí "Electroshocks"; el número es interpretado por Scotty, acompañado por Brad y Rocky, al intentar revivir a Frank-N-Furter.
  • En "The Brad and Janet Show", sólo Cosmo y Nation cantan la canción, Ricky y Ansalong no están presentes y la principal diferencia recae en el personaje de Scotty, puesto que le conectan un aparato de terapia electroconvulsiva y le pasan algunos voltios hasta que se pone de pie, para impresionar a los papás de Janet. Aquí, a Bert sólo le quitan sus lentes y abren unas persianas, con lo que se le "cura" su "ceguera".
