Boney M: Rasputin

Rasputin
There lived a certain man in Russia long ago
He was big and strong, in his eyes a flaming glow
Most people looked at him with terror and with fear
But to Moscow chicks he was such a lovely dear
He could preach the bible like a preacher
Full of ecstacy and fire
But he also was the kind of teacher
Women would desire

RA RA RASPUTIN
Lover of the Russian queen
There was a cat that really was gone
RA RA RASPUTIN
Russia’s greatest love machine
It was a shame how he carried on

He ruled the Russian land and never mind the czar
But the kasachok he danced really wunderbar
In all affairs of state he was the man to please
But he was real great when he had a girl to squeeze
For the queen he was no wheeler dealer
Though she’d heard the things he’d done
She believed he was a hole healer
Who would heal her son

(Spoken:)
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.

“This man’s just got to go!” declared his enemies
But the ladies begged “Don’t you try to do it, please”
No doubt this Rasputin had lots of hidden charms
Though he was a brute they just fell into his arms
Then one night some men of higher standing
Set a trap, they’re not to blame
“Come to visit us” they kept demanding
And he really came

RA RA RASPUTIN
Lover of the Russian queen
They put some poison into his wine
RA RA RASPUTIN
Russia’s greatest love machine
He drank it all and he said “I feel fine”

RA RA RASPUTIN
Lover of the Russian queen
They didn’t quit, they wanted his head
RA RA RASPUTIN
Russia’s greatest love machine
And so they shot him till he was dead

(Spoken:) Oh, those Russians

Boney M – Ma Baker

“Spoken :
FREEZE ! I’m Ma Baker – put your hands in the air,
gimme all your money

– This is the story of Ma Baker, the meanest cat
from ol’ Chicago town

She was the meanest cat
In old Chicago town
She was the meanest cat
She really moved them down
She had no heart at all
No no no heart at all

She was the meanest cat
Oh she was really tough
She left her husband flat
He wasn’t tough enough
She took her boys along
‘cos they were mean and strong

Ma Ma Ma Ma – Ma Baker – she taught her four sons
Ma Ma Ma Ma – Ma Baker – to handle their guns
Ma Ma Ma Ma – Ma Baker – she never could cry
Ma Ma Ma Ma – Ma Baker – but she knew how to die

They left a trail of crime
Across the U.S.A.
And when one boy was killed
She really made them pay
She had no heart at all
No no no heart at all

Ma Ma Ma Ma – Ma Baker – she taught her four sons
Ma Ma Ma Ma – Ma Baker – to handle their guns
Ma Ma Ma Ma – Ma Baker – she never could cry
Ma Ma Ma Ma – Ma Baker – but she knew how to die

she met a man she liked
she thought she’d stay with him
one day he formed with them
they did away with him
she didn’t care at all
just didn’t care at all

spoken :
– Here is a special bulletin.
Ma Baker is the FBI’s most wanted woman.
Her photo is hanging on every post office wall.
If you have any information about this woman,
please contact the nearest police station…

– Don’t anybody move ! The money or your lives !

One day they robbed a bank
it was their last foray
the cops appeared too soon
they couldn’t get away
and all the loot they had
it made them mighty mad
and so they shot it out
Ma Baker and her sons
they didn’t want to hang
they died with blazing guns
and so the story ends
of one who left no friends

Ma Ma Ma Ma – Ma Baker – she taught her four sons
Ma Ma Ma Ma – Ma Baker – to handle their guns
Ma Ma Ma Ma – Ma Baker – she never could cry
Ma Ma Ma Ma – Ma Baker – but she knew how to die

Ma Ma Ma Ma – Ma Baker – she taught her four sons
Ma Ma Ma Ma – Ma Baker – to handle their guns
Ma Ma Ma Ma – Ma Baker – she never could cry
Ma Ma Ma Ma – Ma Baker – but she knew how to die

Mary’s Boy Child

Mary’s boy child Jesus Christ, was born on Christmas Day.
And man will live for evermore, because of Christmas Day.

Long time ago in Bethlehem, so the Holy Bible said,
Mary’s boy child Jesus Christ, was born on Christmas Day.

Hark, now hear the angels sing, a king was born today,
And man will live for evermore, because of Christmas Day.
Mary’s boy child Jesus Christ, was born on Christmas Day.

While shepherds watch their flocks by night,
they see a bright new shining star,
they hear a choir sing a song, the music seemed to come from afar.

Hark, now hear the angels sing, a king was born today,
And man will live for evermore, because of Christmas Day.

For a moment the world was aglow, all the bells rang out
there were tears of joy and laughter, people shouted
“let everyone know, there is hope for all to find peace”.

Now Joseph and his wife, Mary, came to Bethlehem that night,
they found no place to bear her child, not a single room was in sight.

And then they found a little nook in a stable all forlorn,
and in a manger cold and dark, Mary’s little boy was born.

Hark, now hear the angels sing, a king was born today,
And man will live for evermore, because of Christmas Day.
Mary’s boy child Jesus Christ, was born on Christmas Day.

Oh a moment still worth was a glow, all the bells rang out
there were tears of joy and laughter, people shouted
“let everyone know, there is hope for all to find peace”.

Oh My Lord

Oh my Lord
You sent your son to save us
Oh my Lord
Your very self you gave us
Oh my Lord
That sin may not enslave us
And love may reign once more

Oh my Lord
when in the crib they found him
Oh my Lord
A golden halo crowned him
Oh my Lord
They gathered all around him
To see him and adore

(This day will live forever)
Oh my Lord (So praise the Lord)
They had become to doubt you
Oh my Lord (He is the truth forever)
What did they know about you
Oh my Lord (So praise the Lord)
But they were lost without you
They needed you so bad (His light is shining on us)

Oh my Lord (So praise the Lord)
with the child’s adoration
Oh my lord (He is a personation)
There came great jubilation
Oh my Lord (So praise the Lord)
And full of admiration
They realized what they had (until the sun falls from the sky)

Oh my Lord (Oh praise the Lord)
You sent your son to save us
Oh my Lord (This day will live forever)
Your very self you gave us
Oh my Lord (So praise the Lord)
That sin may not enslave us
And love may reign once more

Boney M – No Woman No Cry

No woman no cry
No woman no cry
No woman no cry
No woman no cry
Cause I remember when we used to sit
In a government yard in trenchtown
Observing the hypocrites
Mingle with the good people we meet
Good friends we have, now
Good friends we have lost
Along the way
In this great future,
You can’t forget your past
So dry your tears, I say

No woman no cry
No woman no cry
Oh little darling, don’t shed no tears
No woman no cry
Cause I remember when we used to sit
In the government yard in trenchtown
When Georgie would make the fire lights
I say, log would burnin’ through the nights
Then we would cook cornmeal porridge
Of which I’ll share with you
My feet is my only carriage
So I’ve got to push on thru,
And while I’m gone
Everything ‘s gonna be alright
Everything ‘s gonna be alright
Everything ‘s gonna be alright now
Everything ‘s gonna be alright
Everything ‘s gonna be alright now
Everything ‘s gonna be alright
No woman no cry

No woman no cry
No woman no cry
No woman no cry
No woman no cry
Oh little darlin’ don’t shed no tears
No woman no cry
Oh little darlin’ don’t shed no tears
No woman no cry

No woman no cry

You and I and you and I and you and I
No woman no cry

Cause I remember when we used to sit there
No woman no cry
In a government yard

No woman no cry

No woman no cry
