Lyrics:

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 ecstasy 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 holy healer
Who would heal her son

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

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

Oh, those Russians...

  • 43 years later and this song still hits different. Truly a masterpiece.

  • de 1979 para 2022, que espetáculo de música.

    • Romans 10:9-10 That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved. For with the heart man believeth unto righteousness; and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation.

    • O legal desses videos de música é que sempre tem um br com 200+ likes

    • @sigfriedx69 no

    • Confirmooo que chimba de tema

    • Yes

  • This was my mom's song.She would blast it dancing it. She passed away 3 months ago at only 66 yrs old. Mom I'm blasting it for you. I hope it reaches Heaven❤💔😢

    • that's not your mom but that's OUR Mom Rest In Peace Our mom

    • Συλλυπητήρια μου κι ο μπαμπάς μου το αγαπούσε πολύ, έφυγε κι αυτός πρίν από 5 μήνες...

    • RIP

    • I am sorry for your loss ❤️❤️❤️

    • rest in peace

  • Banda muy famosa en los setentas en Argentina y el baile era saltando en la pista de baile como locos y con mucha energía. Me acuerdo de esa época que marcó a muchos en la música disco. Hoy 30 de junio de 2022 la sigo escuchando.

    • @Елена из Кунцево Российский император Николай 2 - это английский король Георг 5.

    • Romans 10:9-10 That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved. For with the heart man believeth unto righteousness; and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation.

    • Yo 2 de julio de 2022 musica q nunca pasa de moda clásico.

    • Pues si me encanta

    • @Елена из Кунцево I don't understand, but I think you are from Russia. And if you're not from there, take care of yourself anyway. Greetings from Mexico.

  • Музыка на все времена и для отличного настроения 🎉🎉🔥🔥🔥🔥

  • This man is like a kid dancing without any worries. Just enjoying to his soul

  • After so many years, this song is still one of the best!! 👍

  • Te "teledyski" z Sopotu to najlepsza gwarancja jakości muzyki... Serio widać, że dają z siebie 100%. Nawet gitarzyści w ujęciu widać, że nucą pod nosem. Przyjemnie widzieć, że wykonawcy nie traktowali tego jako przymus tylko przyjemność czego nie widzę u dzisiejszych wykonawców. Wielki plus dla Boney M. Ta pozytywna energia z piosenek jest super, aż chce się żyć. Dziena!

    • Понял от силы 50%, но Boney M действительно круты

  • this song is probably the all time most favorite in the history. very hypnotizing music and dance!

  • Моя любимая группа, моя молодость и детство. Не перестаю из слушать, люблю их песни, молодцы ребята.

    • @Pedro Rivas concuerdo

    • Es un angel mas del demonio.!

    • Андрей Кравцов

  • Dude sung a total of like 8 lines while the women took carried the whole song but damn he was killing it dancing

  • Está canción Te pone a bailar... aunque estés inválido... Sí estoy Triste.. La pongo y me levanta el ánimo Definitivamente... Sí esos momentos volvieran...junto con mí juventud.. Sería el más FELIZ 😃

    • @Douglas Espinoza es que es un temazo me gusta que la escucho en múltiples versiónes

    • @camila Valverde si, Yo soy joven aún y amo esta música quisiera que más gente la reconociera y no escucharan mucho reguetón vulgar

    • Sería bello ser joven toda la vida sería una fiesta

    • @DouglasEdits ygual yo me encanta

    • De acuerdo, es un temazo, todos los días la escucho

  • Это уже классика.А классика никогда не умрет,не то что современная музыка.

    • Классика,,,это ваш царь,,,,,не тошнит?,,,,,,,,😭⚔️👽🏴

    • Только императрица не была любовницей Распутина.

  • It's 2022 now and I'm still listening. BONEY M is timeless.

  • I'm mad that im almost 40 and I'm just hearing this song for the first time today... Boney M's music will live forever!

    • @Klass Vice No, disco is never dead and nor is metal or rock and roll. That's just what fans are told to make them angry. Could be a manipulation tactic, designed to wind us up into buying records from the companies who tried to control these artists in the first place.

    • 🥰🥰🥰

    • I’m mad I never knew he was BLACK!!!!!🤯🤯🤯🤯💀

    • I like how this comment was made yesterday and it has likes. It means that a lot of ppl still listen to this song ❤️

    • @nutty boy biboy Bobby Farrel is dead December 30th 2010. And for your knowledge, he never sang a note with Boney M. He was only lip-singing.

    • @Maurizio Mariani THATS AFTER MY BIRTHDAY (which is december 19 2013 and i know its not 2010 just sayin)

    • The man died 30 december 2010.

    • Holy shit, you must be so lucky. I was watching them perform some songs at this festival online and kept wishing I was born at a time when I'd be old enough to watch this in real life. :(

  • Even though it was released in 1979, it's a classic and it never gets old!

  • Qué nostalgia ver hoy estos videos. La época 70 y 80...lo mejor. Linda música, grandes bandas, hermosas películas con su música. Uf, cuanta nostalgia.

  • 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 ecstasy 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 kazachok 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 holy healer Who would heal her son

  • Legend of voice. Legend of dance 💖

    • Bobby Farrel never sang. He was only able to dance and lip-sing.

  • He was dancing completely for himself. He knew it was his time for shinning. What a performance by this dude!

    • @Peter K Mercury could sing. He was an artist. This guy did not sing at all.

    • @Tommy Michalski it was

    • The Holy Spirit was in him.

  • I would pay good money to see this live performance now. It looks like so much fun to be at!

  • Can keep coming back to this every once in a while and this still *SLAPS.*

    • @Rahul Verma 🗿

    • SLAPS ?? but nobody was hurt ??

    • RA Ra Ra Ra Ra Ra Ra Rasputin lover of the Russian Queen 👑

  • 43 years later and this song still hits different. Truly a masterpiece.

    • @Seastar Family Good

    • @Seastar Family Good

    • @AlttInVR I already cry 🤬

    • @Seastar Family nobody cares, and also cry about it lol

  • Siempre la escucho en los reels de instagram , hoy se me dio por buscar el tema , fui a spotify y no me bastó Así que acá estoy viendo el video y bailando !

    • @Harun🇷🇺Musa 👍👍🇳🇴🇳🇴..sou Carlos noruega

    • I was born in Canada 🇨🇦 but my mom is from Russia so I like it 🇷🇺

    • Oi 👍👍 valeu

  • Бони Эм - мое детство и юность, спасибо Богу что они были на моем жизненном пути.

  • It isn't just Dance , it's Freedom!❤️

  • Greatest legend for all time... We missed you... The world is still worries about your pass away...

  • 1970 People: The future is going to be great! 2021 People: Let's go back to the 70's 😁

    • This is sadly too true.

    • I wanna go to his concert in the 70’s or lower yeah

    • 😂😂😂

    • no thanks, I don't want to go back in the 70s because of martial law and the poverty rate.

  • Fue un grupo fuera de serie su exito musical rasputin aun se escucha en el nuevo milenio

  • The shuffle dance trend has suddenly made this song even more worth vibing for, had no idea it was this old, 200 yrs from now and this song would still feel as if it was recorded yesterday 🔥🫰🙆

  • Subtle choreographies and profound lyrics that afforded the listener unprecedented insights into the history of foreign cultures; those were the heydays of German Pop...😉

  • Негр танцует яблочко. Это забавно и мило) Ну и конечно же я просто дразнюсь называя солиста негром. Прекрасно исполнено, фановый текст. Не зря это стало классикой)

  • The fact that this man could never see the amount of recognition and appreciation this video has, it’s just sad. He really used to put a lot of effort in every single show.

    • @BIBBIDI-BOBBDI-BITCH(SASHALOVE83) It was popular in North America for sure...

    • @Tristyn Bishop Bobby Farrell but he was only lipsinging.

    • @Dr Jeeshma He never did sing

    • lot of effort and a hell lot of cocaine..

    • @Yo He wasn't the real singer! He was lip syncing. And the song wasn't popular everywhere

  • Suprême Boney M , orchestre ,guitare,synthé etc.. de la vraie musique

  • Love this song❤️

  • Simplemente genial!!!!

  • Los años más dorados de la historia 🥳🥳🥳

  • Fun Fact: Non of the band members are Russian and the group was originally based in west Germany, but their songs were very popular in Russia and were played in discos and Soviet citizens loved it. Since Bobby Farrell’s death(the legendary dude singing and dancing on the stage) the three remaining members of the band travelled across Russia to perform Boney M hits. Sadly, the band is no longer together. But it’s great they are getting the appreciation and hype they deserve!

  • I'm in love with this melodious voice of these ladies 🚺

  • This song never gets old

    • For real.👍

    • Unlike Rasputin.

  • В то время исполнители жили искуством,сценой!сейчас сцену превратили в "плей бой".

    • не было бы спроса, не было бы и предложения :)

  • Nunca pensé que ellos cantaran esa cancion, maravilloso

  • 40 years later , still a masterpiece

  • Great singers and great dancer.

  • Từ bé mình đã nghe giai điệu này và giờ mình vẫn nghe vẫn hay, vừa mới mẻ, vừa quen thuộc.

  • It’s like the girls asked their mum if they could start a band and she said only if you take your little brother 😅

    • @복음선포자 amen!

    • Hahahaaaaaaa!!! 🤣👌🏻

    • @복음선포자 is that a ong or no cap situation

    • Romans 10:9-10 That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved. For with the heart man believeth unto righteousness; and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation.

    • Hi sorry except the front man

  • De lo mejor.. Nunca se olvidara

  • This is not a song This is HISTORY

    • Pretty much it’s about Rasputin

    • @Joel Murphy I wish TikTok would stop being such a party-pooper and let us enjoy the song!

    • His story? OUR story

    • @Joel Murphy Yes true

    • @Nas Rander Thanks bro

    • @sheila williamson but you like Christmas for shame

    • Ciao è una bellissima canzone che rimarrà sempre nel mio cuore ❤️❤️❤️🌹😘

    • P

    • Forza Putin

  • Не знаю, как вся планета, но вся Россия и особенно весь Иркутск танцевал под эту группу!!! Браво, " Бони - М " !!!

    • @Anella Boness "О, эти русские", что звучит в самом конце песни. Это упрек в адрес Юсупова и компании, уничтоживших "величайшую русскую машину любви" ), типа что же вы наделали?

    • Вам уже теперь этого не понять, ведь вы ненавидеть Украину, но и мы, Украину, всегда любили эту группу и всегда плясали под ее хиты. Увы, все проходит.

    • Это правда. Как минимум пол мира танцевало под эту музыку. Я кстати из Украины и тоже когда впервые услышал, не танцевал конечно, но изн@siлов@л кнопку повтора потом))

    • О русские

    • @Руслан Чужаев да!!! Мы раньше и студентами до упаду на танцах танцевали, и более взрослыми. Везде были танцплощадки: и в клубах, и в студобщежитиях, и на у л и ц а х !!! Там танцевала и молодёжь и взрослые, все отрывались после работы, и главное музыка была просто о г о н ь !!!, не то что сейчас тягомотная. И после таких танцев хотелось строить и БАМ и Коммунизм !

  • One of the best performance ever...ppl just don’t preform like they used to lol

  • My favorite song and hearing from my childhood. Exceptional dancer.

  • The greatest performance ever 🕺

  • This song is one of those that just doesn’t die, and I really want it to stay that way.

    • Эти песни моей молодости. С удовольствием слушаю сейчас. Браво Boni M.

    • @Shadow Waffle332 the song is more popular than ever now because of Rasputin in the new Kingsman movie tracing the origins of how the kingsman got started Here's a clip from the King's Men Rebooted version of Hyatt all started id-tv.org/tv/video-MGoCwNHE4ys.html

    • This song is popular again because of the kingsman movie

  • First time i heard him.. I love his deep voice

  • Este grupo era tan bueno que si quiere puede crear canciones de otro mundo

  • 2022 and i still listening this masterpiece

  • This is the definition of *OLD* yet *GOLD*

  • The fact he is dancing like that with a wired microphone makes him a legend.

    • @FF Mumm-Ra yep

    • @Lonely Ma is it now darlin? You sure?

    • Cocaine is one helluva drug

    • @FF Mumm-Ra exactly 😒

  • The real Eternal music and group ❤️❤️

  • esta es una excelente canción 👌

  • Legends, what a song, what a performance, will still exist when the end of mankind.

  • I love this song and it’s on my bucket list to learn the Just Dance Rasputin dance. Ra Ra Rasputin.

  • The late 70’s had a certain unique vibe, this song captures it perfectly.

    • Ya cold war vibe😂

    • @Joe Kerr That's because cocaine got hella expensive in the 80s. So everyone started doing heroine and smoking pot. That's when 90s rock was born.

    • @Demon² Así es.

    • @Joe Bobba If I said your comment got many likes, your reply would be accurate..😏

    • I was there. It was the disco craze.

  • Fantastični BONI M🎶🎶🎶❤️❤️❤️

  • Love this song 🥰

  • Не ну нормально чернявый исполняет, молодчина!

  • Essa música é muito boa kkkk

  • I bet these people didn't expect how huge, legendary classic They were making.

    • @Reynoll Suleyman relax, I know what you mean but I don’t think they (the commenter) intended it to be racist

    • @nikki Oh so he was just “the black guy” and so he gets zero credit, name, appreciation etc

    • @Nikki Yep, you can tell he's not really singing.

    • Fun fact: He’s not actually singing. He’s just a dancer the real singer is a white German man called Frank Farian lol. The black guy is lip syncing to Frank’s voice.

  • il faut absolument que quelqu’un sample cette instru mythique 🔥🔥🔥

  • Soy joven y me laten estás rolas

  • The intensity of this dude is off the charts

  • La mejor canción de 1979 a 2022
