Minnie the Moocher
The Blues Brothers Lyrics

Hey folks here's the story 'bout Minnie the Moocher
She was a low-down Hoochie Koocher

She was the roughest toughest frail
But Minnie had a heart as big as a whale

Hidey Hidey Hidey Hi
(Hidey Hidey Hidey Hi)
Hodey odey odey oh
(Hodey odey odey oh)
Heedey Heedey Heedey Hee
(Heedey Heedey Heedey Hee)
Hidey Hidey Hidey Ho
(Hidey Hidey Hidey Ho)

She messed around with a bloke named Smokey
She loved him though he was cokey

He took her down to Chinatown
And showed her how to kick the gong around

Hidey Hidey Hidey Hi
(Hidey Hidey Hidey Hi)
Heedey Heedey Heedey Hee
(Heedey Heedey Heedey Hee)
Hidey Hidey Hidey Ho
(Hidey Hidey Hidey Ho)

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 the platinum wheels

He gave her is townhouse and his racin' 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

Poor Min'
Poor Min'
Poor Min'...

As a child, you really can't comprehend the immensity of this production.
Then, you grow up, and realize that this movie is a concert, a tribute and a master piece.

My favorite movie of all time. It looks silly on the surface, but when you realize what they did here, it just blows you away. Most of the artists here weren't really doing much (except Ray Charles, maybe), and this movie gave them all a new lease on life, to a whole new young audience that came to see a goofy comedy movie.


I agree, every SNL movie that came after this PALES in comparison, yes even Wayne's World.

It was one of my favorite movies from the moment my parents showed it to me as a kid, but I have only recently realized its true beauty

This man was 73 years old when this movie was released. still had it almost 50 years after this song's original release.


I remember watching this when I was very young.....you could feel the importance of this performance


@David Ranney Because some people, like Cab, are just THAT awesome.

73 and his voice was still perfect. I gotta believe other older singers must watch that and think it's just not fair.
