ABBA - Nina, Pretty Ballerina Lyrics




Every day in the morning on her way to the office
You can see as she catches a train
Just a face among a million faces
Just another woman with no name
Not the girl you'd remember but she's still something special
If you knew her I am sure you'd agree
'Cause I know she's got a little secret
Friday evening she turns out to be...

Nina, pretty ballerina
Now she is the queen of the dancing floor
This is the moment she's waited for
Just like Cinderella
(just like Cinderella)
Nina, pretty ballerina
Who would ever think she could be this way
This is the part that she likes to play
But she knows the fun would go away
If she would play it every day

So she's back every morning to her work at the office
And another week to live in a dream
And another row of early mornings
In an almost never-ending stream
Doesn't talk very often, kind of shy and uncertain
Everybody seems to think she's a bore
But they wouldn't know her little secret
What her Friday night would have in store...

Nina, pretty ballerina
Now she is the queen of the dancing floor
This is the moment she's waited for
Just like Cinderella
(just like Cinderella)
Nina, pretty ballerina
Who would ever think she could be this way
This is the part that she likes to play
She would like to play it every day

Nina, pretty ballerina
Now she is the queen of the dancing floor
This is the moment she's waited for
Just like Cinderella
(just like Cinderella)
Nina, pretty ballerina
Who would ever think she could be this way
This is the part that she likes to play

  11. maria venilde de souza lucas

    Alguem poderia postar esta musica no 4shared...

  12. Kaempfer M

    Some of their older, “not that well-known” songs were their most melodic and appealing. This song is a great example, as well as “Bang-A-Boomerang” and “What About Livingstone?”

    747-pilot

    EXACTLY!!! ....add to that "Ring Ring" and others!

    Janett Grady

    Not some, not most, but every single one of ABBA's songs were outstandingly superb in every sense of the word superb. No debate, no arguments, comparisons impossible. Anyone who does not like ABBA must have a screw loose. If you do not like ABBA, stay the fuck away from me.

  13. Дмитрий Юдинцев

    Awesome band! Awesome music! Awesome peaples of band!

  14. Дмитрий Юдинцев

    Awesome song of ABBA! ABBA forever!

  15. flower king_97

    The question is, when did she practice?

  16. brugglesby

    Reminds me of Another Day by Wings.

  17. Kekuolhouthie Dzuvichu

    ABBA the greatest group whose songs are ever new till today.

  18. DimBopSah

    Sounds like one of those corny songs that Paul McCartney would write for each Beatles album.

    DJ Regnier

    This song is not corny. It is relatible. ABBA's songs have a way to connect with the human condition.
    ABBA were intelligent songwriters.
    People all around the world, no matter culture, understood ABBA songs. ABBA songs reflect everyday life.

  19. Carlo Zabbia

    There's no such thing as a "bad" ABBA song.

  20. Funny Kiwi

    Only I am 13 and in love with this song?😅

  21. Vasudevan Tirumurti

    wrong label.

    Symphonyofflowers

    Excuse me, but what do you mean by that?

  22. TheSunnybunny2000

    I USED TO LOVE THIS SONG BACK IN THE DAY
    THE MOST UNDERRATED BAND OF ALL TIME
    AND BOY THOSE TWO COULD WRITE SOME MASTER PIECES

  23. ô picatchu

    Happy days...

  24. DingoYabuki

    I love this song, especially the guitar in the background

  25. Neli Fitkova

    Wie häßlich ist Agnetha!

  26. Janett Grady

    Damn, this song makes me happy. I just love it.
    If you've had a bad day, I highly recommend you play this song...then replay it, max volume!!!
    It works for me. I love this Nina video!!!

  27. Cassandra Darby

    This song reminded me of my Father

  28. Overripe Pickle

    Anyone from Chippewa ranch camp 😭😩💗

  29. Anita Thewes

    Love it XOXOXOXO BRILLIANT

  30. Janett Grady

    I love everything about ABBA. Everything!!! When I think I've found their best music video, I find another and think it's the best. My God, ABBA is just amazing...and this Nina, Pretty Ballerina video proves to be yet another of their "best." I love everything about ABBA!!!

  33. imnayeoned oncee

  34. zemos777

    Thank u ABBA for the happiness u brought to the whole world

  35. Nina Lanav

    Oh hi my Self

  36. Jamie Lord

    This was the FIRST song that I knew ALL of the lyrics to. My mom owned the cassette. I played it every day, over and over again.
    People often say the Beatles were revolutionary. Maybe so, but to me -- ABBA holds up much, much better. I think they were quite possibly the best band ever created.

    resireg

    Stop trashing the Beatles. Abba only exists because of them

    Janett Grady

    resireg...Not trashing the Beatles, Hon, but those four English fags were nothing compared to ABBA. To say ABBA existed only because of the Beatles is being...Well, let me be politically correct and simply say you must be a bit mentally challenged.

    resireg

    @Janett Grady yes they do. Benny Andersson (who wrote Abba songs, besides being the piano player), before Abba was for many yearsin a band called Hep Stars, who was nicknamed "the Swedish Beatles" , so simikar they were in looks and sound, and they were popular in nordic countries in the 60s and there are videos of them playing beatles songs (like Benny playing "Martha my Dear"). Even the Hootenay Singers (Bjorn Ulvaeus's band, he wrote almost all Abba lyrics) are also very inspired by the Beatles. And Abba was not a band until their 2nd record (pretty much Bjorn & Benny were the main act, featuring solo artists Anni-Frid and Agnetha). So go find some other band to trash. The proof that the Beatles are the best, is the fact that people compare them with Abba, instead pf Led Zeppelin, Rolling Stones, Pink Floyd or The Who. If they were not the best, nobody would remember them.

    Janett Grady

    resireg...Thanks for the response. I'll take it back, you're obviously far from being mentally challenged, and you've researched more than I have. I still believe ABBA would have existed on their own, though, once they came together, and I much, much prefer ABBA over the Beatles.. I despised the Beatles, but that's me, an old "cunt" who came of age with Elvis...and never liked any of the so-called English invasion bands, singers, or whatever. I liked Petula Clark, born in Wales, lived and married French, but she was old school...competitive with Elvis singing puppy-love songs.. You and I simply differ when it comes to ABBA versus the Beatles. So let's leave it at that.

    resireg

    @Janett Grady thank you, I ll edit my comment erasing the insult. I love Abba, and so many other bands from the 60s and 70s (including Elvis Presley).

  37. Вадик Тельчаров

  45. ya boi Gabe Newell

    I love how they so casually say "everybody seems to think she's a whore"

    Symphonyofflowers

    No, it's "bore" not "whore". Please read the lyrics.

  46. Dávid Müller

    this song is just undoubtedly terrible but still can't dislike it :DDD

  47. PRASHANT CHAVAN

    this is the part that she likes to play ... and another week to live with her dreams ... but they wouldn't know her little secret ... which she would like to play everyday .... just like Cinderella ..

  48. bronxsushi2

    Lynn Samuels favorite song.

  49. Terrell CF

    Frida's voice was the necessary element to take the edge off of Agntha's high pitch screech

    Randy Ventresca

    Catty comment. The Agnetha vs. Frida comments are so lame.

  50. paul barlow

    love love love

  51. Hari Krishna

    Wow what a beauty.

    colonial bill

    Believe in yourself, Nina, and you won't be nervous. Your belief is in your own precision.

    colonial bill

    Many years ago, a shy, awkward man got up 2 give a speech. When it was over, nobody applauded. Can you imagine how he felt? No applause at all. Today, that speech is known as the Gettysburg Address.

    Clear News

    Socially anxious? You r fucked in the head.

    resireg

    Some people only shine on the stage.

  82. Brandon League

    I'm doing what all metalheads do when they suffer a psychotic break. Listening to ABBA.

    Thomas Geisser

    Metalheads don't have nervous breakdowns, posers do. But ABBA was nice

    Andrew Douglass

    Göteborgs Metalstad allmetall lol!

  83. Janne Joensuu

    Frida , pretty ballerina .

  84. Scott Amundsen

    I could easily throw a party with nothing but ABBA songs and Ringnes beer from Norway.

  85. hermann preisler

    für mich der voll beste Song von Abba.

  86. RavennaAl

    I'm curious. @:30 the picture clearly shows Frida is 2-3" taller than Agnetha, I've noticed this in about every video I've seen, yet in both bio's they are listed at the same 5'8" So, is Frida really about 5'11", or is Agnetha really about 5'5" since they are obviously not both 5'8"?????

  87. Lau Ra

    This is very funny: 0:36

    Janne Joensuu

    Swingers ?

  88. Ramachandran V

    I listened to this song in year 1977 and to this day it remains my favourite as it transcends countries and languages. My feelin gs are almost the same as I listened to it at least 500 times earlier and it is still just too mesmerizing sans glamour

  89. jaja a paja

    super musics,thanks ABBA.

  90. Peter Kolovos

    I love this song.

  91. GuanoLad

    So is Nina also the Dancing Queen?
