31. Minnie The Moocher

Cab Calloway – Irving Mills (1931) « The Blues Brothers » (1980)
Folk's here's the story 'bout Minnie the Moocher
She was a low-down hoochie coocher
She was the roughest, toughest frail
But Minnie had a heart as big as a whale

(hidey-hi's!)

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

(hidey-hi's!)

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

(Fast hidey-hi's!)

He gave her his townhouse and his racing horses
Each meal she ate was a dozen courses
Had a million dollars worth of nickels and dimes
And she sat around and counted 'em all a million times

(hidey-hi's, one mo' 'gain!)

Poor Min, poor Min, poor Min!
