Now here's the story 'bout Minnie the Moocher
She was a lowdown hoochie coocher
She was the roughest and the toughest frail
But Minnie had a heart as big as a whale

Hidee, hidee, hidee hey
Hedee, hedee he
Hodee, hodee ho

She had a dream about the king of Sweden
He gave her everything that she was needin'
He gave her a home built of golden steel
A platinum car with diamond wheels

Hidee, hidee, hidee hey
Hedee, hedee he
Hodee, hodee ho

Now Minnie and Smokey, they started shaggin'
They got a free ride in a wagon
She gave him money to pay her bail
But don't you know he went and left her in the jail

Hidee, hidee, hidee hey
Hedee, hedee he
Hodee, hodee ho

Oh, Minnie met old Deacon Lowdown
He preached to her that she oughta slowdown
But Minnie just stood and rock and rolled
And Deacon Lowdown, please save my soul

Hidee, hidee, hidee hey
Hedee, hedee he
Hodee, hodee ho

They took her where they put the bad ladies
And now Minnie is pushin' up daises
You heard my story, now this ends my song
She's a good gail but they done her wrong

Hidee, hidee, hidee hey
Hedee, hedee he
Hodee, hodee ho
