[Verse 1] 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 [Hook] Ra-Ra-Rasputin Lover of the Russian Queen There was a cat that really was gone Ra-Ra-Rasputin Russia's greatest love machine It was a shame how he carried on [Verse 2] He ruled the Russian land and never mind the Tsar But the kazachok 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 [Hook] (Spoken:) But when his drinking and lusting and his hunger For power became known to more and more people The demands to do something about this outrageous Man became louder and louder [Verse 3] "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 [Hook 2] 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
