Babooshka
Kate Bush Lyrics


Babooshka
Babooshka

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

Babooshka

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

Babooshka-ya-ya

Babooshka
Babooshka
Babooshka

“Babooshka” by English singer and songwriter Kate Bush tells the story of a mature wife who is feeling insecure in her marriage. So to ascertain how faithful her hubby is, she initiates a scheme to send him love letters but under the disguise of another woman by the name of “Babooshka”.



“Babooshka” is actually a representation of wife’s younger self who she feels her husband would be more attracted to than who she actually is in the present. The ultimate conclusion and thus meaning of the song has been interpreted in various ways. Babooshka’s generally interpretation is that the wife, in successfully tempting her husband with the promise of another woman, ended up destroying their relationship. However, it has also been suggested that ultimately the wife realizes that she indeed is “Babooshka” and in the process regains the desired admiration of her husband.



ugh not me misspelling disguise as guise😭

I'll always love you Kate Bush <3
Best woman singer ever in existence.
Beautiful music, Amazing singing, Amazing voice, Beautiful charming magic stunning amazing look, ultra beautiful personality.
Her songs are all king of beautiful-mystery from another planet or dimension.
I fell in love with her as a child and still loves her. Her videos music-videos and interviews.. wow an interview that she was such a beauty there and still is, her pictures from those days, just perfect, look, personality and singing and voice and music.
I got to know her by my parents who were born in the 50's my father in 57' and mother in 58' (Kate was also born in 58' btw so from the same period), nothing like the music and atmosphere in the mid to end of the 70's.
Tennis Bjorn Borg and John McEnroe, Formula 1 Niki Lauda and James Hunt, Horses Racing Secretariat, Cars, Clothes, Girls, before aids, relatively peace, hippies, music and bands and quality of life. Amazing decade or amazing 2nd half decade. Steely Dan.
About Kate Bush in one word - Mystery.
I'm 26 (born in 96').
I also love modern British Acid Jazz.

@Danielle Watson No, Kate composed 'The Man With the Child in His Eyes', at age 13. Gilmour heard it through mutual family friends, and he paid for a professional recording of the song when she was 16. He was most definitely instrumental in launching her career.

He helped her record her song 'Passing Through Air ' (it's on YouTube) when she was barely 15, accompanied by a band he was promoting at the time, Unicorn. She plays the piano on the song, too.

Honestly, Kate is more than a singer, she’s an artist and performer. She can really do it all, write and sing and be a visual artist.
