Folks here's the story of Minnie the Moocher

She was a red hot hoochie coocher

Minnie was the roughest toughest frail

Minnie had a heart as big as a whale


Hidi hidi hidi hi

Hodi hodi hodi ho

Hene hene hene he

Hidi hidi hidi hi


She messed around with a bloke named smokey

She loved him though he was cokey

He took her down to china town

And he showed her how to kick that gong around


Hidi hidi...


She had a dream about the king of Sweden

He gave her things that she was needing

Her gave her a home built of gold and steel

A diamond car with a platinum wheel


Hidi hidi...


He gave her his town house and his racing horses

Each meal she ate was a dozen courses

Had a million dollars worth of nickels and dimes

She sat down and count them all a million times     


Hidi hidi...
