Hey folk's here's the story 'bout Minnie the Moocher
She was a lowdown 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'
He gave her a home built of gold and steel
A diamond car, with the platinum wheels.
He gave her a 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 a million times.
(hidey-hi's, one mo' 'gain!).
poor min, poor min, poor min!
