Cab Calloway – Minnie The Moocher lyrics

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


She messed around with a bloke named Smokey
She loved him, though he was coke-y
He took her down to Chinatown
And he showed her how to kick the gong around


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

(fast hidey-hi's!)

He gave her a 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 a million times

(hidey-hi's, one mo' 'gain!)

Poor min, poor min, poor min!
