    Folks, now here's the story
    'bout Minnie the Moocher,
    She was a red-hot hootchie-cootcher,
    She was the roughest, toughest frail,
    But Minnie had a heart as big as a whale.

    [Call and response scat chorus
    differs every time. The
    following is simplified:]
    Hi-de-hi-de-hi-di-hi!
    Ho-de-ho-de-ho-de-ho!
    He-de-he-de-he-de-he!
    Ho-de-ho-de-ho!

    Now, she messed around with a bloke named Smoky,
    She loved him though he was cokie,
    He took her down to Chinatown,
    He showed her how to kick the gong around.

    Now, 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 a platinum wheel.

    Now, 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,
    And she sat around and counted
    them all a billion times.

    Poor Min, poor Min, poor Min.
