| Ebm      | Ebm      |

| Abm      Bb    | Ebm            |
  Hey hey hey hey hey hey hey hey
 
| Ebm    Db       | B     Bb       |        x2

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

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

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