Folks here's a story 'bout 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

Hidey hidey hidey hi
(Hidey hidey hidey hi)
Whao ohh ohh ohh oh
(Whao ohh ohh ohh oh)
Heedey heedey heedey hee
(Heedey heedey heedey hee)
Yeah yeah yeah yeah yeh
(Yeah yeah yeah yeah yeh)

She messed around with a bloke named Smokey
She loved him though he was kokey
He took her down to Chinatown and showed her
How to kick the gong around

Hidey hidey hidey hi
(Hidey hidey hidey hi)
Whao ohh ohh ohh oh
(Whao ohh ohh ohh oh)
Yeah yeah yeah yeah yeh
(Yeah yeah yeah yeah yeh)
Whao ohh ohh ohh oh
(Whao ohh ohh ohh oh)

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 the platinum wheels

Hidey hidey hidey hi
(Hidey hidey hidey hi)
Hode hode hode hode ho
(Hode hode hode hode ho)
Skee a biki booka a biki skeedly beeka gookity woop!
Skee a biki booka a biki skeedly beeka gookity woop!
A-booriki-booriki-booriki hoy!
(A-booriki-booriki-booriki hoy!)

He gave her his town house and his racing horses
Each meal she ate was a dozen courses
She had a million dollars in nickels and dimes
She sat around and counted it all, a million times

Hidey hidey hidey hi
(Hidey hidey hidey hi)
Whao ohh ohh ohh oh
(Whao ohh ohh ohh oh)
Yeah yeah yeah yeah yeh
(Yeah yeah yeah yeah yeh)
Whao ohh ohh ohh oh
(Whao ohh ohh ohh oh)
Poor Min!
Poor Min!
Poor Min!
