Lyrics

ANATOLE & DOLOKHOV
Hey Balaga
Ho Balaga
Hey hey ho Balaga
Hey hey Balaga
The famous troika driver

Hey Balaga
Ho Balaga
Hey hey hey Balaga
Hey hey Balaga
The famous troika driver

BALAGA
Who's that madman flying at full gallop down the street
Who's that madman knocking people over
Running people down
While his fine gentlemen
Hold onto their seats

ANATOLE & DOLOKHOV
It's Balaga!

BALAGA
Driving mad at twelve miles an hour

ANATOLE & DOLOKHOV
Balaga!

BALAGA
Comin' straight at you
Get out my way, get out my way

ANATOLE & DOLOKHOV
Balaga!

BALAGA
Lashin' my whip at horses and peasants

ANATOLE & DOLOKHOV
Balaga!

BALAGA
Risking skin and life twenty times a year
For my fine fine gentlemen
Yessir hey ho yessir
Yessir yessir yessir

ANATOLE & DOLOKHOV
More than once!

BALAGA
From Tula to Moscow and back in just one night

ANATOLE & DOLOKHOV
More than once!

BALAGA
A narrow escape from a wild Cossack fight

ANATOLE & DOLOKHOV
More than once!

BALAGA
They've beaten me and slapped me with their gloves

ANATOLE & DOLOKHOV
More than once!

BALAGA
Made me drunk on champagne, which I love!

ANATOLE & DOLOKHOV
Hey Balaga
Ho Balaga
Hey hey ho Balaga
Hey hey Balaga
The famous troika driver

Hey Balaga
Ho Balaga
Hey hey hey Balaga
Hey hey Balaga
The famous troika driver

ANATOLE
Who's that slowpoke we abuse with wild and tipsy shouts

BALAGA
Who knows things that would get you sent straight to Siberia
If anyone found out

ANATOLE & DOLOKHOV
It's Balaga!

BALAGA
Driving mad at twelve miles an hour

ANATOLE & DOLOKHOV
Balaga!

BALAGA
Comin' straight at you
Get out my way, get out my way

ANATOLE & DOLOKHOV
Balaga!

BALAGA
Drinking and dancing at gypsy orgies

ANATOLE & DOLOKHOV
Balaga!

BALAGA
Riding my horses into the ground
For my fine fine gentlemen
Yessir hey ho yessir
Yessir yessir yessir

ALL
More than once!

BALAGA
Driven you round with ladies on your laps

ALL
More than once!

BALAGA
Taken you places not on any maps

ALL
More than once!

BALAGA
Galloped faster than ordinary men would dare

ALL
More than once!

BALAGA
Jumped my troika right into the air

And I never ask for rubles
Except maybe once a year
I don't do this for rubles
I do it cuz I like 'em!

ALL
And we like Balaga too!

ANATOLE
Whoa...

ALL
Whoa...
