Minnie the Moocher 
Cab Calloway, Blues Brothers

Hey folks here's the story 'bout Minnie the Moocher
She was a low-down Hoochie Koocher 
She was the roughest toughest frail
But Minnie had a heart as big as a whale
    Ho de ho de ho, (Ho de ho de ho)
    Rah de dah de dah, (Rah de dah de dah)
    Teedle dee de dee (Teedle dee de dee)
    Ho de ho de ho, (Ho de ho de ho)

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

    Hi dey Hidey Hidey Hi  (Hidey Hidey Hidey Hi)
    Ree de dah de doo, (Ree de dah de doo)
    Bo de dah do dah (Bo de dah do dah)
    Ho de ho de ho, (Ho de ho de ho)

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 platinum car with the diamond-studded wheels

    Wah de woo de way  (repeat)
    Oh Baby,
    Doh de dee de do,
    Ho de ho de ho
He gave her is townhouse and his racin' 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

    Bee do doo de dow,
    Oh Minnie,
    Wa de wa de doo,
    Ho de ho de ho,
Now Min' and Smokey they started jaggin'
They got a free ride in a wagon
She gave him the money to pay her ball
But he left her flat in the County Jail

    Skee de doo de dee,
    Skah de dah de dah,
    Skow de dow de dow,
    Ho de ho de ho.

Poor Minnie met Old Deacon Low - down
He preached to her she ought to slow down
But Minnie wiggled her jelly roll
Deacon Low - down hollered "Oh save my soul"

    Yi i yip i ah,
    Ump i dump i dah,
    Yah de dah de do,
    Ho de ho de ho

They took her where they put the crazies
Now poor old Min' is kickin' up daises
You've heard my story, this ends the song
She was just a good gal but they done her wrong

    Whoop ee doop ee dah,
    Hi de hi de hi
    Skid a ma rinky dee,
    Ho de ho de ho

Poor Min', Poor Min', Poor Min'....
