"In the Dark of the Night" is a song from the 1997 20th Century Fox and Don Bluth animated film Anastasia. It is sung by the evil wizard Rasputin and his bug followers as he expresses his plans to destroy Anastasia.

The song was sung by Jim Cummings, the singing voice for Rasputin, and a chorus as the bugs.

Lyrics

In the dark of the night I was tossing and turning
And the nightmare I had was as bad as can be
It scared me out of my wits
A corpse falling to bits
Then I opened my eyes
And the nightmare was...me!!

I was once the most mystical man in all Russia
When the royals betrayed me they mad a mistake
My curse made each of them pay
But one little girl got away
Little Anya, beware, Rasputin's awake

In the dark of the night evil will find her
In the dark of the night just before dawn

Revenge will be sweet
When the curse is complete!

In the dark of the night
She'll be gone!

I can feel that my powers are slowly returning
Tie my sash and a dash of cologne for that smell
As the pieces fall into place
I'll see her crawl into place
Dasvidanya, Anya, your grace, farewell

In the dark of the night terror will strike her
Terror's the least I can do
In the dark of the night evil will brew
Ooh!

Soon she will feel that her nightmares are real
In the dark of the night
She'll be through!

In the dark of the night
Evil will find her
(Find her)
Ooh
In the dark of the night terror comes true
(Doom her)

My dear, here's a sign:
It's the end of the line!

In the dark of the night...
In the dark of the night...

Come my minions,
Rise for your master,
Let your evil shine
Find her now,
Yes, fly ever faster

In the dark of the night...
In the dark of the night...
In the dark of the night...

She'll be mine!

Trivia

  • While the song didn't appear on the stage musical adaptation of the film, due to Rasputin being omitted and replaced by the more realistic General Gleb Vaganov, the song's melody (more exactly the melody from the part where Rasputin sings "Come my minions, Rise for your master...") can be heard two times in the play: first at the beginning during the moment the Russian revolution surprises the Romanovs and later during the song "Stay, I Pray You".
