"Blame It On The Boogie" as written by and Dave Jackson Mick Jackson....
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

    My InterpretationOkay well..

    My interpretation of the song is that He's dating a girl that loves to party/go to discos. Because of that he never sees her like he wants to. At first he didn't like it until he experienced it himself. He became overwhelmed and couldn't help but to dance along with her. Then she's all over him again when he joins her.

    Song Meaningthe boogie straight forward is the possession of an evil spirit
    like the devil. im sure as children we remember the boogieman.
    the boogieman had a long history in euro culture
    boogieman was once known as puck which is known to mean the
    devil or supernatural force. more current songs like timbaland's
    up jumps the boogie, boogie jumps me; clearly refers to spirit
    possession especially when he blasphemes the name of YHWH in
    his lyrics. Devil is known for being a master of ceremonies when it
    comes to music. Who you think influenced the Israelites
    to make a golden calf while listening to 'strange music' ?
    * interestingly puck/boogieman is half calf half man"
