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

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

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