Minnie the moocher Lyrics by Cab Calloway
Minnie the moocher by Cab Calloway
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
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!
