Minnie the moocher Lyrics

Minnie the moocher by Cab Calloway  

CD  ·  DVD  ·  Sheet music

Minnie the moocher 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!
