Vladimir:
You were born in a palace by the sea
Anastasia:
A palace by the sea
Could it be?

Vladimir:
Yes, that's right!
You rode horseback when you were only three

Anastasia:
Horseback riding? Me?

Vladimir:
And the horse

Dimitri:
He was white!

Vladimir:
You made faces and terrorized the cook.

Dimitri:
Threw him in the brook

Anastasia:
Was I wild?

Dimitri:
Wrote the book!

Vladimir:
But you'd behave when your father gave that look.

Dimitri:
Imagine how it was

Vladimir:
Your long forgotten past

Vladimir, Dimitri:
We've lots and lots to teach you
And the time is going fast

Anastasia:
Alright, I'm ready

Vladimir:
Now, shoulders back and stand up tall
And do not walk but try to float

Anastasia:
I feel a little foolish
Am I floating?

Vladimir:
Like a little boat
You give a bow

Anastasia:
What happens now?

Vladimir:
Your hand receives a kiss

Vladimir, Dimitri:
Most of all, remember this

Vladimir:
If I can learn to do it
You can learn to do it

Dimitri:
Something in you knows it

Vladimir, Dimitri:
There's nothing to it

Vladimir:
Follow in my footsteps
Shoe by shoe

Vladimir, Dimitri:
You can learn to do it, too

Vladimir:
Now, elbows in and sit up straight

Dimitri:
And never slurp the stroganoff

Anastasia:
I never cared for stroganoff

Vladimir:
She said that like a Romanoff

Dimitri:
The Samovar

Vladimir:
The Caviar

Anastasia:
Dessert and then goodnight?

Vladimir, Dimitri:
Not until you get this right

Vladimir:
If I can learn to do it
Dimitri:
If he can learn to do it
Vladimir:
You can learn to do it

Dimitri:
You can learn to do it
Vladimir:
Pull yourself together
And you'll pull through it

Vladimir:
Tell yourself it's easy
And it's true
You can learn to do it, too

Vladimir:
Next, you must memorize
the names of the royalty
Now, here we have Kropotkin,

Dimitri:
Shot Potemkin,
Vladimir:
In the Botkin

Anastasia:
Oh!

Vladimir:
And dear old uncle Vanya
Loves his Vodka

Dimitri:
Got it, Anya?

Anastasia:
No!

Vladimir:
The Baron Pushkin

Anastasia:
He was?

Dimitri:
Short!

Vladimir:
Count Anatoly

Anastasia:
Had a...

Dimitri:
Wart!

Vladimir:
Count Sergei

Dimitri:
Wore a feathered hat

Vladimir:
I hear he's gotten very fat

Anastasia:
And I recall his yellow cat

Vladimir:
I don't believe we told her that

Anastasia:
If you can learn to do it,
I can learn to do it.

Vladimir:
Don't know how you knew it

Anastasia:
I simply knew it
Suddenly I feel like someone new

Vladimir, Dimitri:
Anya, you're a dream come true

Vladimir, Dimitri:
If I can learn to do it,

Anastasia:
If I can learn to do it,
You can learn to do it,

Anastasia:
You can learn to do it.
Pull yourself together

All Three:
And you'll pull through it

Vladimir:
Tell yourself it's easy

All Three:
And it's true
You can learn to do it, too

Anastasia:
Nothing to it

All Three:
You can learn to do it, too
