Here's some news that'll get you
It's made to order for you
I just bet it'll fit you
Follow up these red hot news

Grab a taxi and go down
Chinatown's on a spree
Let me give you the lowdown
This is really history

Whenever folks in Chinatown start acting gay
There's something in the air that makes them feel that way
Yeah, man, I heard somebody say
It's Minnie the Moocher's wedding day

Old Smoky Joe's so happy, he can hardly wait
He's spent a million dollars for his wedding date
Yeah man, they're gonna celebrate
It's Minnie the Moocher's wedding day

You better come on down
Way down in Chinatown
Oh, let me take you down
To see them kick the gong around

A million cookies shouting, "Hay-de-hay-de-hay"
The King of Sweden's gonna give the bride away
Yeah man, I heard somebody say
It's Minnie the Moocher's wedding day

The king and queen of every nation
Were glad to get an invitation
The Prince of Wales said he would get away
For Minnie the Moocher's wedding day

They said a hundred thousand hoppies
Went over to China picking poppies
They're gonna put them all in one bouquet
For Minnie the Moocher's wedding day

Hi-de-hi-de-hi
Ho-de-ho-de-ho-de-ho
Hay-de-hay-de-hay
It's Minnie the Moocher's wedding day

Yeah man! Why, what's that them boys say?
It's Minnie the Moocher's wedding day
