featuring the UBC Singers - 1994


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

But all that seems distant and all that seems far

From those glorious days

at the palace of the Czar

when


I went Shootin' with Rasputin

Ate farina with Czarina

Blintzes with the princes and the Czar

hey, hey, hey

We were sharing tea and herring

Dipped banana in smetana

Borscht and wurst around the samovar - hey!
