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

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

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