Music Monday – Blame It On the Boogie by The Jackson 5

musicmonday

Music Monday is a meme created and hosted by Drew@TheTattooedBookGeek as an opportunity to share a favourite music video.

This week I’m sharing a video from 1978 by the Jackson 5, now known as The Jacksons. I think it’s a great song to banish the Monday morning blues, and you get you dancing in the kitchen or where ever you happen to be right now!

My baby’s always dancin’
And it wouldn’t be a bad thing
But I don’t get no loving
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 sunshine
Don’t blame it on moonlight
Don’t blame it on good times
Blame it on the boogie

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

The 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 lightning leave me
My baby just can’t take
Her eyes off me

Don’t blame it on sunshine
Don’t blame it on 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 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

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

Don’t blame it on sunshine
Don’t blame it on 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
And fire burns inside me
Boogie’s got me in a
Super trance

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

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

Owww – sunshine
Whoo – moonlight
Yeah – good times
Mmmm – boogie

You just gotta – sunshine
Yeah – moonlight
Good times
Good times – boogie

Don’t you blame it – sunshine
You just gotta – moonlight
You just wanna – good times
Yeah – boogie
Ohh blame it on yourself – sunshine
Ain’t nobody’s fault – moonlight
But yours and that boogie – good times
On all night long – boogie

Yours and that boogie – sunshine
Ain’t nobody’s fault – moonlight
But yours and that boogie – good times
Dancin’ all night long – boogie

Blame it on yourself – sunshine
Ain’t nobody’s fault – moonlight
But yours and that funky funky boogie al night long – good times
