[OLD WOMAN] St. Petersburg is gloomy!
[YOUNG WOMAN] St. Petersburg is bleak!
[MAN] My underwear got frozen standing here all week!
[GROUP] Oh, since the revolution our lives have been so gray!
[ALL] Thank goodness for the gossip that gets us through the day! Hey!
Have you heard There's a rumor in St. Petersburg? Have you heard What they're saying on the street? Although the Czar did not survive, One daughter may be still alive! The Princess Anastasia!
[FRIGHTENED MAN] But please do not repeat!
[ALL] It's a rumor, A legend, A mystery! Something whispered in an alleyway Or through a crakc! It's a rumour That's part of our history.
[A BABUSHKA] They say her royal grandmama Wil pay a royal sum
[ALL] To someone who can bring the princess back!
[BLACK MARKEETER #1] A ruble for this painting! It's Romanov, I swear!
[BLACK MARKETEER #2] Count Yusopov's pajamas! Comrade, buy the pair!
[BLACK MARKETEER #3] I got this from the palace It's lined with real fur!
[BLACK MARKETEERS] It could be worth a fortune If it belonged to her!
[DIMITRI] It's the rumor, The legend, The mystery! It's the Princess Anastasia who will help us fly! You and I friend Will go down In history! We'll find a girl to play the part and teach her what to say, Dress her up and take her to Paree! Imagine the reward her dear old Grandmama will pay! Who else could pull it off but you and me? We'll be rich
[VLADIMIR] We'll be rich!
[DIMITRI] We'll be out!
[VLADIMIR] We'll be out!
[BOTH] And St. Petersburg will have some more to talk about!
[ALL] SSH! Have you heard There's a rumor in St. Petersburg? Have you heard What they're saying on the street? Hey! Hey! Hey! Have you heard There's a rumor in St. Petersburg! Have you heard
[A DELIGHTED GOSSIPER] Comrade, what do you suppose?
[ALL] A fascinating mystery!
