Her Six Daughters — Shootin With Rasputin lyrics

An intimate friend of the Czar was I
A personal friend of the great Nikolai
We practically slept in the same double bed
It was I at the foot and he at the head
[Chorus:]
Shootin' with Rasputin
Ate farina with Czarina
Blintzes with the princes and the Czar
Shootin' with Rasputin
Ate farina with Czarina
Sharing tea and herring round the samovar
A friend of the Czar was I all his gracious life
But friendlier still was I with his young wife
We practically slept in the same double bed
Till the Czar kicked me out
And slept there instead
[Chorus:]
As the Red flag rose I bid Russia goodbye
It was simply a case of Lenin or I
And it all seems so distant it all seems so far
From those glorious days hanging out with the Czar.
[Chorus:]
