Factoid: - This song was originally sang by Cab Calloway in 1931, and then was re-written by Danny for "The Forbidden Zone" and called 'Squeezit The Moocher'. Around 1990, Boingo payed tribute to ol' Cab and played "Minnie The Moocher" several times. The Mystic Knights of the Oingo Boingo played it most often in it's original form.

Minnie The Moocher

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)

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

Hidehidehidehi (Hidehidehidehi)
Whoah (Whoah)
Hedehedehedehe (Hedehedehedehe)

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)

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 a million times

Hidehidehidehi (Hidehidehidehi)
Poor Min, poor Min, poor Minnie
