"Minnie the Moocher" as written by Clarence Gaskill, Irving Mills and Cab Calloway....
Folks 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 as big as a whale

Hodehodehodeho (Hodehodehodeho)
Hodehodihidehi (Hodehodihidehi)
Hidehidehidehi (Hidehidehidehi)
Ho-oh! (Ho-oh!)

She messed around with a bloke named Smokie
She loved him though he was a tad cokey
He took her down to Chinatown
And showed her how to kick that gong around

Hidehidehidehi (Hidehidehidehi)
Whoah-y-oh-y-oh-y-oh (Whoah-y-oh-y-oh-y-oh)
Hedehedeheyeye (Hedehedeheyeye)
Yawhoahh-pop! (Yawhoahh-pop!)

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

Hidehidehidehi (Hidehidehidehi)
Hodehodehodeho (Hodehodehodeho)
Whoah! (Whoah!)

He gave her a townhouse and his racing horses
Each meal she ate was a dozen courses
He had a million dollars worth of nickels and dimes
She sat and counted them all a million times

Hidehidehidehi (Hidehidehidehi)
Whoah-whoah! (Whoah-whoah!)
Hedehedehedehe (Hedehedehedehe)
Whoah-uh-whoah-uh-whoa-uh-whoah (Whoah-uh-whoah-uh-whoah-uh)

Poor Min, poor Min, poor Minnie
