Subject: Lyr Add: MINNIE THE MOOCHER^^
I think you're looking for Minnie the Moocher Seed. Here are lyrics. Not so drug involved, but, hey, before the 60's it was a verboten subject.

Minnie the Moocher

Folks here's a story 'bout Minnie the Moocher
She was a red hot hoochie-coocher
She was the roughest toughest frail
But Minnie had a heart as big as a whale
Hi-de-hi-de-hi-de-hi.... (Hi-de-hi-de-hi-de-hi)
Whoa-oh-oho-oh-oh-oho.... (Whoa-oh-oho-oh-oh-oho)
Ee-de-ee-de-ee-de-ee.... (Ee-de-ee-de-ee-de-ee)
Way-hey-ey-ay-ee-ay-ay-ay.... (Way-hey-ey-ay-ee-ay-ay-ay)
She messed around with a bloke named Smokey
She loved him though he was Coke-y
He took her down to Chinatown
And he showed her how to kick the gong(?) around
Hi-de-hi-de-hi-de-hi.... (Hi-de-hi-de-hi-de-hi)
Whoa-oh-oho-oh-oh-oho.... (Whoa-oh-oho-oh-oh-oho)
Yeah-eah-aa-aheah-ah-ah-ah.... (Yeah-eah-aa-aheah-ah-ah-ah)
Whoa--ioh--ioh--iohh.... (Whoa--ioh--ioh--iohh)
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 'n steel
A diamond car ... with big pl-atinum wheels
Hi-de-i-de-i-de-i-de-iii.... (Hi-de-i-de-i-de-i-de-iii)
Oh-de-oh-de-oh-de-oh-de-O-oh.... (Oh-de-oh-de-oh-de-oh-de-O-oh)
Skitleedatleedootidituditooey.... (Skitleedatleedootidituditooey)
A-boo-rrigi-boo-rrigi-boo-rigi-ay.... (A-boo-rrigi-boo-rrigi-boo-rigi-ay)
He gave her a townhouse and his racing horses
Each meal she ate was a dozen courses
She had a million dollars worth of nickels and dimes
She sat around and counted them a million times
Hi-de-hi-de-hi-de-i.... (Hi-de-hi-de-hi-de-i)
Whoahohohohohohooooooh.... (Whoahohohohohohooooooh)
Whay-hey-heey-heey-hey-a-ay.... (Whay-hey-heey-heey-hey-a-ay)
Whoa-oh - Whoa-oh.... (Whoa-oh - Whoa-oh)
Poor Minnie Poor Minnie Poor Minnie....

Of course, Cab Calloway was born right here in Baltimore.
