from a Harry Warren fan site

There's a lot of talk about our old pal Minnie,
All around the neighborhood;
Ev'rybody's happy when you mention Minnie,
She's been doin' mighty good,
But we always knew she would.
Have you heard that Minnie's in the money?
Take my word that Minnie's in the money.
She hasn't got a guy who's got a diamond mine,
But she's a welder on the old assembly line.
So bless her, yes, sir, Minnie's in the money,
Minnie's in the money, that's fine!
She's helping Uncle Sam to keep his people free,
She's okay, hooray, Minnie's in the dough re mi.
