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)

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

My Sunny Tennessee lyrics, by Bert Kalmar, Harry Ruby, Herman Ruby – (from the musical Three Little Words starring Fred Astaire and Red Skelton)

When the shades of night are falling
Tennessee, I hear you calling;
My thoughts just roam
Back to home, sweet home.
Every day my heart grows fonder,
Of the folks I left down yonder;
I wonder when I’ll be there again.

Where Did You Get That Girl lyrics — €“ words by Bert Kalmar, music by Harry Puck, 1913

(sung in Three Little Words, starring Fred Astaire and Red Skelton)

Lonesome Johnnie Warner, sitting in a corner
of a swell cafe, eating his heart away
because he had no girl,

with a fellow who Johnnie knew and his brain began to whirl
The girl had caught his eye and John began to cry.
