It was down in Chinatown,
Some were high and some were mighty low,
When a knock came on the door,

He was lookin' for his frail,
Nobody made a sound,
And then you hear old Smoky shout:
Saying, "Tell me where is Minnie?
Has she been here,

She's tall and skinny,
Kicking the gong around!"
"Just tell her Smoky Joe
And as he departed,
And there stood Minnie

All the cokies laid around,
Count millions on the floor
And there stood old Smoky Joe.
He was sweatin', cold and pale,
He was broke and all his junk ran out,
Nobody made a sound,

Oh, I want my little Minnie!
Kicking the gong around?"
"If you don't know Minnie,
She gets her pleasure

Was here and had to go."
The curtains parted,
Kickin' the gong around!
