"Minnie the Moocher's Wedding Day [From the Cotton Club Revue of 1932]" as written by and Harold Arlen Ted Koehler....
Folks, here's a story about Minnie the Moocher
She was a real live hoochie-koocher
She was the roughest, toughest frail
But Minnie had a heart as big as a wha-a-le

Hidee-hidee-hidee-hi()
Hodee-hodee-hodee-ho()
Heedey-hee-dee-hee-dee hee ()
Hidee-hidee-hidee-ho()

She hung around with a bloke named Smoky
She loved him though he was cokey
He took her down to Chinatown
Where he showed her how to kick the gong around ()

Hidee-hidee-hidee-hi()
Wooooooh()
Heedey-hee-dee-hee-dee hee ()
Hidee-hidee-hidee-ho()

She had a dream about the King of Sweden
He gave her things that she was needin'
A palace home built of gold and steel
A diamond car with platinum wheels

Hidee-hidee-hidee-hidee-hidee-hidee-hi()
Hodee-hodee-hodee-hodee-hodee-hodee-ho()
Scoodley-woo-scoodley-woo-scoodley-woodley-woodley-woo()
Zit-dit-dit-dit-dittle-but-dut-duttleoo-skit-dit-skittle-but-dit-zoy()

He gave her his 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

Hidee-hidee-hidee-hi()
Hodee-hodee-hodee-ho()
Heedey-hee-dee-hee-dee hee ()
Hidee-hidee-hidee-ho()

Poor Min, poor Min, poor Min
