    "Minnie the Moocher" Lyrics

    Cab Calloway

    Folks, here's a story about Minnie the Moocher
    She was a red hot hoochie-koocher
    She was the roughest, toughest frail
    But Minnie had a heart as big as a whale

    Hidee hidee hidee hi
    Oh oh oh oh
    Hee dee hee dee hee dee hee
    Yeah yeah yeah yeah

    She messed around with a bloke named Smoky
    She loved him though he was cokey

    He took her down to Chinatown
    And he showed her how to kick the gong around

    Hidee hidee hidee hi
    Oh oh oh oh
    Yeah yeah yeah yeah
    Oh ho ho ho

    She had a dream about the King of Sweden
    He gave her things that she was needin'
    He gave her a home built of gold and steel
    A diamond car with platinum wheels

    Hidee hidee hidee hidee hidee hidee hi
    Hodee hodee hodee hodee hodee oh
    Skeedle a booka diki biki skeedly beeka gookity woop
    A booriki booriki booriki Hoy

    He gave her his townhouse and his racing horses
    Each meal she ate was a dozen courses
    She had a million dollars worth of nickels and dimes
    She sat around and counted them all a million times

    Hidee hidee hidee hi
    Hooh whoaa oh oh whoa
    Hidee hidee hidee hi

    Poor Min, Poor Min, Poor Min
