Verse:
      Bm
There lived a certain man in Russia long ago
       Em                     Gb             Bm
He was big and strong, in his eyes a flaming glow
-Bm-
Most people looked at him with terror and with fear
       Em                   Gb            Bm
But to Moscow chicks he was such a lovely dear
-Bm-
He could preach the bible like a preacher
Em                  Gb
Full of ecstasy and fire
Bm
But he also was the kind of teacher
Em     Gb   Bm
Women would desire
 
Chorus 1:
B     D         E            B
Ra Ra Rasputin, lover of the Russian queen
A           E        B
There was a cat that really was gone
-B-   D         E                 B
Ra Ra Rasputin, Russia's greatest love machine
A        E         B
It was a shame how he carried on
 

| Bm      | Bm  Gb  | Bm      | Bm  Gb  |
 
| Bm      | Bm      | Em      | Gb  Bm  |
 
 
Verse:
   Bm
He ruled the Russian land and never mind the Tsar
        Em                   Gb           Bm
But the kasatschok he danced really wunderbar
-Bm-
In all affairs of state he was the man to please
           Em                 Gb            Bm
But he was real great when he had a girl to squeeze
-Bm-
For the queen he was no wheeler dealer
Em                                 Gb
Though she'd heard the things he'd done
Bm
She believed he was a holy healer
Em        Gb       Bm
Who would heal her son
 
Chorus 1:
B     D         E            B
Ra Ra Rasputin, lover of the Russian queen
A           E        B
There was a cat that really was gone
-B-   D         E                 B
Ra Ra Rasputin, Russia's greatest love machine
A        E         B
It was a shame how he carried on
 
Interlude:
| Bm      | A       | G   Gbm | Bm      | x2
-spoken word-
"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".
 

| Bm             | Bm      Gb     |
  Hey hey hey hey  hey hey hey hey -x4-
 
| Bm      | Bm      | Em      | Gb  Bm  |
 
 
Verse:
      Bm
"This man's just got to go," declared his enemies
        Em                        Gb            Bm
But the ladies begged, "Don't you try to do it, please"
-Bm-
No doubt this Rasputin had lots of hidden charms
          Em                    Gb            Bm
Though he was a brute they just fell into his arms
-Bm-
Then one night some men of high standing
Em                          Gb
Set a trap - they're not to blame
Bm
"Come to visit us," they kept demanding
Em     Gb     Bm
And he really came
 
Chorus 2:
B     D         E            B
Ra Ra Rasputin, lover of the Russian queen
A             E      B
They put some poison into his wine
-B-   D         E                 B
Ra Ra Rasputin, Russia's greatest love machine
A           E       B
He drank it all and said "I feel fine"
 
Chorus 3:
B     D         E            B
Ra Ra Rasputin, lover of the Russian queen
A           E          B
They didn't quit, they wanted his head
-B-   D         E                 B
Ra Ra Rasputin, Russia's greatest love machine
A           E        B
And so they shot him till he was dead
         Bm
-Spoken- Oh, those Russians...
