lyrics

In her mind, she hears this music - that’s hallucination
If she can’t stop the shakes she’ll make us get out the restraints
George made a mistake when he tried to quit cold turkey
And the Jacksons knew just exactly where to place the blame

Cannot fight boogie blight
Only way to treat, keep them on their feet
So sustain the groove ’til their health improves
They’ll be dancing their disease away

It’s 1518 and there’s a funky kind of flu in Strasbourg
If it can’t be contained we’ll be moving ’til we drop down dead

We’ve got to draw out all the jive
If they have a hope to survive
No breaks, no time to take five
I’m pretty sure it’s safe to say
A curse and the cure are the same
Turn up to eleven let’s play

Cannot fight boogie blight
Only way to treat, keep them on their feet
So sustain the groove ’til their health improves
They’ll be dancing their disease away

How we were to know disco helped to spread night fever
(All our sources say that disco was dead)
Time to divert all flights to funky town
(Contact your airline for compensation)
We need a jitterbug jab, won’t somebody please think of the children
(Won't somebody please think of the youth)
Kids, you can floss your teeth but you gotta keep your limbs bound up

Cannot fight boogie blight
Only way to treat, keep them on their feet
So sustain the groove ’til their health improves
They’ll be dancing their disease away
