About this tab version
Based off the studio version https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8RXOExuS690 I also thought it was worth mentioning Michelle Gurevich's name, she uses it more often than Chinawoman nowadays. Was this info helpful? Yes No

Russian Ballerina by Michelle Gurevich (Chinawoman)

[Intro]
Em

[Verse 1]
Em
It takes ten years just to get
      Em            Am  B
Your stinking leg up
Em
Then five more to make it
Em                Am B
Not look like shit

[Bridge]
Am
 Soviet children form a crowd
Am
 Sized and tested
Am               Em
Who will be a star
Am
 Hero of passion of whom they'll say
Am                                     B 
 She took her final breath in grand plie

[Chorus]
Em
O! My mother! Russian Ballerina!
            Em                                          Am B
You were a swan but now you're swimming in the Carribean
Em
O! My mother! Russian Ballerina!
                         Em                                Am B
Nobody knows how you can live without the love of your life

[Verse 2] 
Em
Everybody's asking me
Em            Am B
Where is Mary?
Em
I don't see her at the theatre
Em            Am B
Or the parties

[Bridge]
       Am
That's right, because she's carving bamboo
Am                            Em
 Far from the artistic millieu
Am                                                       B
Never thought she'd live without allegiance to a life of art

[Chorus]
Em
O! My mother! Russian Ballerina!
            Em                                          Am B
You were a swan but now you're swimming in the Carribean
Em
O! My mother! Russian Ballerina!
                         Em                                Am B
Nobody knows how you can live without the love of your life

[Solo] 
Em
La la la, la la la la la 
Am
La la la, la la la la la 

[Verse 3]
Em
 Life changes
Em
 One day its eggshells and bread
Em
 Married to an intellect
Em                          Am B
 The next you drive a corvette

[Verse 4]
Em
 Things change
Em
 You live your life for the stage
Em
 Til your kidney floats away
Em                    Am B
 Thrown in a car accident

[Bridge]
Am
 A time for art, a time for living
Am                                  Em
 Sometimes the two can be conflicting
Am
 And mama I'll meet you at Caribana
Am                                  B
 Together we're the highest form of art

[Chorus]
Em
O My mother! Russian Ballerina!
            Em                                           Am B
You were a swan but now you're swimming in the Carribean
Em
O! My mother! Russian Ballerina!
                         Em                                 Am B
Nobody knows how you can live without the love of your life
Em
O! My mother! Russian Ballerina!
Em                                                 Am B
 Too bad your priuettes now look almost as bad as mine
Em
O! My mother! Russian Ballerina!
Em                                                       Am B
 Who needs that bullshit we can drink at the casino all night (Everybody now!)

[Solo]
Em
La la la, la la la la la 
Am
La la la, la la la la la
