     Em                   Am          Em
Now, here's a story 'bout Minnie the Moocher, 
B7                  Em      B7
She was a low-down hoochie-coocher,
Em                     Am       Em 
She was the roughest, toughest frail,
B7   Em    Am6   B7       Em    B7  Em 
But Minnie had a heart as big as a whale.
Em 
Ho-de-ho-de-ho
Em 
Ho-de-ho-de-ho
Em 
Hi-de-hi-de-hi
Em 
Hi-de-hi-de-hi 
Em
Bodoo-la-doo-la-doo-ba-doo
Em 
Bodoo-la-doo-la-doo-la-doo
Em    B7     
Ho-de-ho-de-ho
Em       Am6 Em 
Ho-de-ho-de-ho

B7   Em                  Am           Em
She messed around with a bloke named Smokey,
B7                      Em  B7 
She loved him though he was cokey.
Em                  Am    Em 
He took her down to Chinatown,
B7   Em        Am6    B7       Em   B7 Em 
And showed her how to kick the gong around.
B7      Em    B7 Em 
Oh, the gong around!
B7      Em    B7 Em 
Oh, the gong around!
Em 
Wit-da-slow-joe-vi
Em 
Wit-da-slow-joe-vi
Em 
Bod-de-doden-boddle-oh
Em 
Bod-de-doden-boddle-oh 
Em       B7
Ho-de-ho-ho-ho-ho
Em       B7    Em 
Ho-de-ho-ho-ho-ho 
B7  Em                    Am       Em
She had a dream 'bout the king of Sweden, 
B7                          Em  B7
He gave her things that she was needing, 
Em                          Am       Em
He gave her a home built of gold and steel,
B7 Em      Am6      B7      Em  B7   Em 
A platinum car with diamond studded wheels.
Em 
Hi-de-hi-de-hey!
Em 
Hi-de-hi-de-hey!
Em 
O-de-bot-doo-doo! 
Em
O-de-bot-doo-doo!
Em            B7          
Ba-doo-ba-doo-ba-doo-bottle!
Em            B7 
Ba-doo-ba-doo-ba-doo-bottle! 
B7   Em    Am6   B7       Em    B7  Em
But Minnie had a heart as big as a whale.
B7   Em   Am6  B7       B7     Em 
Poor Min, poor Min, oh, Minnie-Min.
