Put The Blame On Mame Lyrics

When Mrs. O'Leary's cow
Kicked the lantern 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 lowdown
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
Put the blame on Mame

Remember the blizzard
They had in Manhattan in 1886
They say the traffic was tied up
And folks were in a fix
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 gave a chump such an ice cold, "No"
For seven days they shoveled snow
So you can put the blame on Mame, boys
Put the blame on Mame

When they had the earthquake
In San Francisco 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 shot Dan McGrew
Folks were putting the blame
On a lady known as Lou
That's 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 Hichie-Koo
That's the thing that slew McGrew
So put the blame on Mame, boys
Put the Blame on Mame

When Mrs. O'Leary's cow
Kicked the lantern in Chicago town
They say that started the fire
