MINNIE THE MOOCHER'S WEDDING DAY (Harold Arlen (m) Ted Koehler (l) ) as recorded by The Boswell Sisters with The Dorsey Brothers Orchestra conducted by Victor Young November 22nd 1932 New York Whenever folks in Chinatown start acting gay, There's somethin' in the air makes them feel that way. Yeah man, (oh yeah man), I heard somebody say "It's Minnie the Moocher's weddin' day". Smokey Joe's so happy he can hardly wait, Spent a million dollars for a weddin' cake. Yeah man, (oh yeah man), I heard somebody say "It's Minnie the Moocher's weddin' day". You better come on down, (you better come on down), Down to Chinatown, (down to Chinatown), Let me take you down, (let me take you down), To see 'em kick the gong around! Million cokies singin' "hi-de-hi-de-ay!", The King of Spain is gonna give the bride away. Yeah man, (oh yeah man), I heard somebody say "It's Minnie the Moocher's weddin' day". The king and queen of every nation Were glad to get an invitation; The Prince of Wales said he would get away For Minnie the Moocher's weddin' day, (Minnie the Moocher's weddin' day). Oh, Willie the Weeper will see you there, He promised Smokey he would be there, To see that everything turned out okay For Minnie the Moocher's weddin' day, (Minnie the Moocher's weddin' day). Oh-oh, better come on down, Oh-oh, down to Chinatown, Oh-oh, let me take you down, Just to see the folk kickin' the gong around! Folk are singin' "hi-de-hi-de-hi-de-hi-de-ay!", King of Spain is gonna give the bride right away, Oh, yeah man, Minnie the Moocher's weddin' day, Minnie the Moccher's weddin' day!
