INTRO
| Gm C/E | D/F# |
| Gm C/E | D/F# |


| Gm C/E | D/F# |
             Babooshka
| Gm C/E | D/F# |
             Babooshka


VERSE
Dm
 She wanted to test her husband
G7sus4/C    Bb6           D/F#
 She knew exactly what to do
  Bbmaj7       Am7
A pseudonym to fool him
Gm7           C/E         D/F#
 She couldn't have made a worse move


VERSE
Dm
 She sent him scented letters
G7sus4/C  Bb6                D/F#
 And he received them with a strange delight
Bbmaj7    Am7
Just like his wife
Gm7          C/E            D/F#
 But how she was before the tears


BRIDGE
Gm7          C/E            D/F#
 And how she was before the years flew by
Gm7          C/E             [ G7sus4 ]
 And how she was when she was beautiful
  1 + 2 + 3 + 4 +
| G7sus4      G7sus4/A | G7sus4/Bb |
                            She signed the letter


CHORUS
Dm  Csus4/E
All yours
  Gm7        D/F#       Gm7
Babooshka, babooshka, babooshka ya ya
Dm  Csus4/E
All yours
  Gm7        D/F#      [ Gm ]
Babooshka, babooshka, babooshka ya ya


INTERLUDE
| Gm C/E | D/F# |
| Gm C/E | D/F# |
             Babooshka


VERSE
Dm
 She wanted to take it further
G7sus4/C Bb6                D/F#
 So she arranged a place to go
Bbmaj7 Am7
To see if he
Gm7              C/E          D/F#
 Would fall(-uh) for her incognito


VERSE
Dm
 And when he laid eyes on her
G7sus4/C    Bb6              D/F#
 He got the feeling they had met before
  Bbmaj7  Am7
Uncanny   how she
Gm7          C/E           D/F#
 Reminds him of his little lady


BRIDGE
Gm7    C/E            D/F#
 Capacity to give him all he needs
Gm7            C/E             D/F#
 Just like his wife before she freezed on him
Gm7            C/E             [ G7sus4 ]
 Just like his wife when she was beautiful
  1 + 2 + 3 + 4 +
| G7sus4      G7sus4/A | G7sus4/Bb |
                            He shouted out


CHORUS
    Dm  Csus4/E
I'm all yours
  Gm7        D/F#       Gm7
Babooshka, babooshka, babooshka ya ya
Dm  Csus4/E
All yours
  Gm7        D/F#       Gm7
Babooshka, babooshka, babooshka ya ya
Dm  Csus4/E
All yours
  Gm7        D/F#       Gm7
Babooshka, babooshka, babooshka ya ya

I've done a version of this and your version is probably better than mine. I would rate five.
Congrats.
