Gilda - Put the blame on mame, boys....

Some shots of this song are used in MJ's "This is it" documentory. When I saw this song I loved the voice and the actress too.

If you go to you tube and see the comments given on this video there is one interesting comment I am posting it here:

Good God she was gorgeous!

I'd love to live back then. When men were men and women were women. I'd trade 2010 for 1946 in a second!



Lyrics:

"When they had the earthquake - in San Francisco-back in 19`6
They said that old mother nature - was up to her old tricks.
That's the story that went around, but here's the real lowdown-
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 puttin' the blame on - the lady known as Lew
that's the story that went around, but here's the real lowdown-
Put the blame on mame boys,
put the blame on mame
Mame did a dance called the Hichy-koo,
that's the thing that slew McGrew
So you can, Put the blame on mame boys
PUT-THE-BLAME-ON-MAME"
