Eddie Cochran – Minnie The Moocher lyrics

Here's a story about Minnie the Moocher
She was a low down hoochie-coocher
She was the roughest, toughest frail
But Minnie had a heart as big as a whale

[Original Chorus]
Hodee-hodee-hodee-ho (hodee-hodee-hodee-ho)
Ra-dee-da-dee-da (ra-dee-da-dee-da)
Teedle-teedle-dee (teedle-teedle-dee)
Hodee-hodee-hodee-ho (hodee-hodee-hodee-ho)

Min' 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 platinum car with diamond starlet wheels

[Variations on Chorus]

Oh Minnie met ol' Deacon Lowdown
He preached to her, oh you oughta slow down
But Minnie wiggled and did the stroll
The Deacon Lowdown hollered, oh save my soul

[Variations on Chorus]

They took her where they put the crazies
Now poor ol' Minnie is a-kickin' up daisies
You heard my story, this ends my song
She was just a good gal, but they done her wrong

[Variations on Chorus]
