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

WIK !!!!!

“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.

Why do people keep saying she's terrifying? She's ethereal and straight up breathtaking. And, I think I love her.

Greg Boardman

i love scary women i mean who doesn't

LizaRDesmond

Probably cause she's yelling "grandmother" in two different languages while scantily dressed and wild-eyed.

Meles Grevling

me too!...since 40 years!

Andy

How dare you. I loved her first. She's mine.

I use to, sing her songs and understand that "fear" thing with Kate Bush deliveries.
It requires a classic art audience/platform to be received properly, though, and I don't do pub based performance, exactly for that reason. The locals prefer Yothu Yindi. 😂😐🤨
I get it. But, as a former singer of Kate Bush songs, know that when I do "Running Up That Hill" it frightens most, but a few, just looooove it , scared by it, but still love it. 🤩🤩 As I cover it exactly how the radio track version is.
I just looooooove the ending of Running Up That Hill.
It is, like, I scare myself doing it !
Very ethereal and dramatic and, frightening.
Today I prefer to sing Charlene's "I've Been To Paradise" , than singing Babooska or Running Up That Hill or Wuthering Heights or The Man With The Child In His Eyes.
🤨🤔🤔😂😂😂😘
