Blame It On The Boogie

Album: Destiny (1978)
Charted: 8 54
  • My baby's always dancin'
    And it wouldn't be a bad thing
    But I don't get no lovin'
    And that's no lie

    We spent the night in Frisco
    At every kind of disco
    From that night I kissed our love goodbye

    Don't blame it on the sunshine
    Don't blame it on the moonlight
    Don't blame it on good times
    Blame it on the boogie

    Don't you blame it on sunshine
    Don't blame it on moonlight
    Don't blame it on good time
    Blame it on the boogie

    That nasty boogie bugs me
    But somehow it has drugged me
    Spellbound rhythm gets me on my feet

    I've changed my life completely
    I've seen the lightening leave me
    My baby just can't take her eyes off me

    Don't blame it on the sunshine
    Don't blame it on the moonlight
    Don't blame it on good times
    Blame it on the boogie

    I just can't
    I just can't
    I just can't control my feet

    I just can't
    I just can't
    I just can't control my feet

    Don't blame it on the sunshine
    Don't blame it on the moonlight
    Don't blame it on good times
    Blame it on the boogie

    This magic music grooves me
    That dirty rhythm moves me
    The devil's gotten to me through this dance

    I'm full of funky fever
    A fire burns inside me
    Boogie's got me in a super trance

    Don't blame it on the sunshine
    Don't blame it on the moonlight
    Don't blame it on good times
    Blame it on the boogie

    Sunshine
    Moonlight
    Good times
    Boogie

    Sunshine
    Moonlight
    Good times
    Boogie

    Don't you blame it
    You just got to
    You just want to
    Yeah
    Blame it on yourself
    Ain't nobody's fault but yours and that boogie
    Dancin' all night long

    Yours and that boogie
    Ain't nobody's fault but yours
    Dancin' all night long

  • Marina from Seattle, WaThere is a mashup of this song and "Should I Stay or Should I Go" by Loo & Placido called "Should I stay or should I boogie?" which is AMAZING. Personally I think it's much better than the original.
