featuring the UBC Singers in concert, under the director of James Fankhauser
The glorious days in the palace of the Czar. End your concert with a rouser!

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
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!
