Put the Blame on Mame lyrics

Put the Blame on Mame lyrics, originally from the film — €˜Gilda’ (Allan Roberts / Doris Fisher)

(from the movie The Fuller Brush Girl starring Lucille Ball and Eddie Albert)

When Mrs. O’Leary’s cow kicked the lantern
In Chicago town
They say that started the fire
That burned Chicago down
That’s the story that went around
But here’s the real low-down
Put the blame on Mame, boys
Put the blame on Mame
Mame kissed a buyer from out of town
That kiss burned Chicago down
So you can put the blame on Mame, boys
Put the blame on Mame

When they had the earthquake in San Francisco
Back in nineteen-six
They said that ol’ Mother Nature
Was up to her old tricks
That’s the story that went around
But here’s the real low-down
Put the blame on Mame, boys
Put the blame on Mame
One night she started to shimmy-shake
That brought on the Frisco quakes
So you can put the blame on Mame, boys
Put the blame on Mame
