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

Hidee-Hidee-Hidee-hi()
Hodee-hodee-hodee-ho()
Heedey-hee-dee-hee-dee hee ()
Hidee-hidee-hidee-ho()

She messed around with a bloke named Smoky
She loved him though he was cokey
He took her down to Chinatown
And showed her how to kick that gong around ()

Hidee-Hidee-Hidee-hi()
Wooooooh()
Heedey-hee-dee-hee-dee hee ()
Hidee-hidee-hidee-ho()

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

Hidee-hidee-hidee-hidee-hidee-hidee-hi()
Hodee-hodee-hodee-hodee-hodee-hodee-ho()

Scoodley-woo-scoodley-woo-scoodley-woodley-woodley-woo()
Zit-dit-dit-dit-dittle-but-dut-duttleoo-skit-dit-skittle-but-dit-zoy()

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

Hidee-Hidee-Hidee-hi()
Hodee-hodee-hodee-ho()
Heedey-hee-dee-hee-dee hee ()
Hidee-hidee-hidee-ho()

Now Min and Smokey, they started jaggin
They got a free ride in a wagon
She gave him money to pay her bail
But he left her flat in the county jail

Hidee-Hidee-Hidee-hey
Hedee-Hedee-He
Hodee-Hodee-ho

Oh Minn met old Deacon Lowdown
He preached to her that she oughta slowdown
But Minnie wiggled her jelly roll
And Deacon Lowdown yelled please save my soul

Hodee-Hidee-Hidee-hey
Hedee-Hedee-He
Hodee-Hodee-ho

They took her where they put the crazies
And now poor Min is pushin up those dasies
You heard my story. this ends my song
She was just a good gal but they done her wrong
Poor Min, Poor Min, Poor Min.
