PUT THE BLAME ON MAME
aus dem amerikanischen Spielfilm "Gilda"
von 1946 mit Rita Hayworth und Glenn Ford


When they had the earthquake in San Francisco
Back in nineteen-six
They said that 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 shim and shake.
That brought on the Frisco quake.
So you can put the blame on Mame, boys,
Put the blame on Mame.

They once had a shootin' up in the Klondike.
When they got Dan McGrew
Folks were putting the blame on
The lady known as Lou.
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 did a dance called the hoochy-coo,
That's the thing that slew McGrew.
So you can put the blame on Mame, boys,
Put the blame on Mame.
