Hey hey hey hey hey hey hey hey hey hey hey hey hey hey hey hey
Hey hey hey hey hey hey hey hey hey hey hey hey hey hey hey hey

There lived a certain man in Russia long ago
He was big and strong, in his eyes a flaming glow
Most people looked at him with terror and with fear
But to Moscow chicks he was such a lovely dear
He could preach the bible like a preacher
Full of ecstasy and fire
But he also was the kind of teacher
Women would desire

Ra ra rasputin
Lover of the Russian queen
There was a cat that really was hung
Ra ra rasputin
Russia's greatest love machine
It was a shame how he carried on

He ruled the Russian land and never mind the tsar
But the kasachok he danced really wunderbar
In all affairs of state he was the man to please
But he was real great when he had a girl to squeeze
For the queen he was no wheeler dealer
Though she'd heard the things he'd done
She believed he was a holy healer
Who would heal her son

Ra ra rasputin
Lover of the Russian queen
There was a cat that really was hung
Ra ra rasputin
Russia's greatest love machine
It was a shame how he carried on

But when he's drinking and lusting
And hungers of power the kind now drawn more people
Their demands to do something about this outrageous man
Who're louder and louder

Hey hey

"This man's just got to go!" declared his enemies
But the ladies begged "Don't you try to do it, please"
No doubt this Rasputin had lots of hidden charms
Though he was a brute they just fell into his arms
Then one night some men of higher standing
Set a trap, they're not to blame
"Come to visit us" they kept demanding
And he really came

Ra ra rasputin
Lover of the Russian queen
They put some poison into his wine
Ra ra rasputin
Russia's greatest love machine
He drank it all and he said "I feel fine"

Ra ra rasputin
Lover of the Russian queen
They didn't quit, they wanted his head
Ra ra rasputin
Russia's greatest love machine
And so they shot him till he was dead

Waaouyeah

Oh those Russians
