minnie the moocher lyrics – blues brothers

hey folks here’s the story ’bout minnie the moocher
she was a lowdown hoocie coocher
she was the roughest toughest frail
but minnie had a heart as big as a whale

hidehidehidehi (hidehidehidehi)
hodehodehodeho (hodehodehodeho)
hedehedehedehe (hedehedehedehe)
hidehidehideho (hidehidehideho)

she messed around with a bloke named smokie
she loved him though he was c*key
he took her down to chinatown
and showed her how to kick the gong around

hidehidehidehi (hidehidehidehi)
whoah (whoah)
hedehedehedehe (hedehedehedehe)
a hidehidehideho (hidehidehideho)

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 platinum wheels

a hidehidehidehidehidehidehi (hidehidehidehidehidehidehi)
hodehodehodehodehodehodeho (hodehodehodehodehodehodeho)
… (…)
… (…)

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
she sat around and counted them all a million times

hidehidehidehi (hidehidehidehi)
hodehodehodeho (hodehodehodeho)
hedehedehedehe (hedehedehedehe)
hidehidehideho (hidehidehideho)

poor min, poor min, poor minnie
