Oh, Nicky

Oh, Nicky, Oh, Nicky, I know all your fears

You hate all the screaming and all of the jeers.

Before you eyes hate is what you receive,

Ridden of love and honour you used to perceive.

Oh, Nicky, Oh, Nicky, abandon those hopes

Before your third daughter runs off and elopes.

Think of your son, frail to the bone,

And just how your wife feels, left all alone.

Oh, Nicky, Oh, Nicky, give into them

They're armed and they've got plenty of men.

Go home now, Nicky, and prey for the best,

Prey for anything but a blood fest.

Oh, Nicky, Oh, Nicky, I wish I could help

Answer your cries and reply to the yelp.

Before your eyes hate is what you receive,

Ridden of love and honour you used to perceive.

Oh, Nicky, Oh, Nicky, Tobolsk here we come

A little cold hearted but OTMA still have some fun!

Life is different but it'll grow onto you,

There's not much to see but so much to do.

Oh, Nicky, Oh, Nicky, Ekaterinburg is calling

But I know so well, you will not be falling.

So when the gun sounds, do not fret,

For happiness will come of yet.

Oh, Nicky, Oh, Nicky, as you soul flits in the sky

Nothing can crush you, you will never die.

Tsar of Russia, a kingdom in heaven,

Your wife, your children, a family of seven,

Oh Nicky, Oh Nicky, we worship you so,

Your memory lives on, an everlasting glow.

Oh Nicky, Oh Nicky, don't stop smiling,

Your story'll go on forever, ever so beguiling.

Watching us from your land above,

You're the monarchs we'll always © x
