Minnie the Moocher

Lyrics:Irving Mills
Music:Cab Calloway

The song was published 1931.

"Minnie the Moocher" is most famous for its nonsensical
ad libbed ("scat") lyrics (for example, "Hi De Hi De Hi De Hi").
In performances, Calloway would have the audience participate
by repeating each scat phrase in a form of call and response.
Eventually Calloway's phrases would become so long
and complex that the audience would laugh
at their own failed attempts to repeat them.




Folks, now here' s a story about Minnie the Moocher
She was a red hot hoochie-koocher
She was the roughest, toughest faril
but Minnie had a heart as big as a wha-a-le

Hodey-ho-dee-ho
Hidey-hi-dee-hi
Heedey-hee-dee-hee
Hodey-ho-dee-ho

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

Hodey- ho
Hidey-hi
Whaddy-whee-ho
Hodey-ho-dee-ho

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

Whaddy-whoody-way
Oh baby
Wanna-be-beyou
Hodey-ho

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

Hodey-hodey
Whoa-Minnie
Wholey-whay
Oh no

Poor Min, Poor Min, Poor Min.
