This is the story of minnie the moocher
She was red hot hoochie-koocher
She was the roughest, toughest frail
But minnie had a heart as biiiig as wha-a-le

(This is the story of minnie the moocher)
Hey-heey
(She has been described by some as a 'low-down, red hot hoochie-koocher')
(With the latest update now let's go live)

Minnie messed around with a bloke Smoky
She loved him tough he was cokey
He took her down to chinatown
And he showed her how to kick the gong around

Hidey-hi hidey-ho
Told you before that I love you so
Hidey-hi hidey-ho
Told you before that I love you so

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 platinum wheels

Hidey-hi hidey-ho
Told you before that I love you so
Hidey-hi hidey-ho
Told you before that I love you so

(Come built your home for me, daddy)

He gave his townhouse and 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 hidey-ho
Told you before that I love you so
Hidee-hi hidee-ho
Told you before that I love you soooo

(The witness Hidey...Hidey-ho)

Hidey-hidey-hi! (hidey-hidey-hi!)
Hodey-hodey-hoo! (Hodey-hodey-hoo!)
Heydee-heydee-hey! (Heydee-heydee-hey!)
Hidey-hidey-hi! (Hidey-hidey-hi!)

WhoooaaaaaAh! (WhoooaaaaaAh!)
Yeah yeah yeah! (Yeah yeah yeah!)
Hii-hii-hii! (Hii-hii-hii!)
Hidey-hidey-hi! (Hidey-hidey-hi!)

(With the latest update now let's go live
We have turned to witnesses who have asked to remain anonymous
But they tell us she was the 'roughest, toughest frail'
but they also say the minnie had a heart as big as, now get this, as big as a whale)

(well of course I do baby)

Hidey-hi hidey-ho (Hidey-hi hidey-ho)
told you before that I love you so (Told you before that I love you so)
Hidey-hi hidey-ho (Hidey-hi hidey-ho)
Told you before that I love you so (Told you before that I love you so)

(He took her down to china town, and he showed her how to, if I can use the parlance of the street, 'kick the gong around')
(The story now takes an international turn, we're told she had a dream about his royal highness, the King of Sweden.)
(this young woman apparantly....)
