She wanted to test her husband
She knew exactly what to do
A pseudonym to fool him 
She couldn't have made a worse move

She sent him scented letters
And he received them with a strange delight 
Just like his wife 
But how she was before the tears
And how she was before the years flew by
And how she was when she was beautiful
She signed the letter

All yours
Babooshka, Babooshka, Babooshka-ya-ya! 
All yours
Babooshka, Babooshka, Babooshka-ya-ya!

She wanted to take it further
So she arranged a place to go 
To see if he 
Would fall for her incognito 
And when he laid eyes on her 
He got the feeling they had met before
Uncanny how she 
Reminds him of his little lady 
Capacity to give him all he needs 
Just like his wife before she freezed on him
Just like his wife when she was beautiful
He shouted out, I'm

All yours
Babooshka, Babooshka, Babooshka-ya-ya! 
All yours
Babooshka, Babooshka, Babooshka-ya-ya! 
All yours
Babooshka, Babooshka, Babooshka-ya-ya!

Babooshka, Babooshka, Babooshka-ya-ya!

Babooshka, Babooshka, Babooshka-ya-ya!

Babooshka, Babooshka, Babooshka-ya-ya!
