"There's the Rub" is a song from the Rankin/Bass special Jack Frost. This one of Kubla Kraus's songs that is often cut from later TV airings, along with "She Is Beautiful". (The songs have both been reinstated in Freeform's new edit of the special.)

Lyrics

I'm Kubla Kraus
I'm king of all the Cossacks
But there are no Cossacks to be king of
There's the Rub

[Chorus #1]
There's the Rub
There's the Rub

I'm Kubla Kraus
I could've been a pharaoh
But there are no pyramids around here
There's the Rub

[Chorus #2]
There's the Rub
There's the Rub
There's the Ra-ha-ha-ub
Rub-ba-dub-dub-rub

I rule with an iron hand
I get what ever I demand
I own the people and the land
So why is it I'm not happy? I don't understand

I'm Kubla Kraus
I could've been a Rajah
But there are no elephants around here
There's the Rub

[Chorus #1]

I'm Kubla Kraus
I could've been a shogun
But there are no samurai around here
There's the Rub

[Chorus #2; x2]
