​A Rumor in St. Petersburg

This song is by Stephen Flaherty and appears on the Disney soundtrack Anastasia (1997).

(Townspeople)
St petersburg is gloomy
St petersburg is bleak
My underwear got frozen
Standing here all week
Since the revolution
Our lives have been so grave!
Thank goodness for the gossip
That gets us through the day
Hey!

Have you heard?
(Whisper) there's a rumor in st petersburg
Have you heard?
(Whisper) what they're saying on the streets

spoken:
Although the czar did not survive
One daughter may be still alive!
The princess Anastasia
But please do not repeat

It's a rumor, a legend, a mystery,
Something whispered in an alleyway
Or through a crack.
It's a rumor that's part of our history

They say her royal grand-mama
Will pay a royal sum
To someone who can bring the princess back!

A ruple for this painting,
Its Romanov I swear
Count Dusophs pajama's
Come buy them by the pair
I got these from the palace,
Its lined with real fur
It could be worth a fortune
If it belonged to her

(Dimitri)
It's the rumor,
The legend, the mystery
It's the princess anastasia
Who will help us fly
You and I friend
Will go down in history
We'll find a girl to play the part
And teach her what to say
Dress her up and take her to Paris
Imagine the reward her dear old grand-mama will pay
Who else could pull it off but you and me!
We'll be rich
(Vlad)
We'll be rich
(Dimitri)
We'll be out
(Vlad)
We'll be out!
(Both)
And st petersburg will have some more to talk about

(Whispered)
Shh
Have you heard?
There's a rumor in st petersburg
Have you heard?
What they're saying on the streets
(Shout)
Hey! (3x)
Have you heard?
There's a rumor in st petersburg
Have you heard?
Comrades what do you suppose?
A fascinating mystery,
The biggest con in history
The princess anastasia
Alive or dead?
Who knows?
