    It doesn't mean anything. The writer uses meaningless words to fill the rhythm of the tune with the right number of syllables.

    There were several songs in the disco era that spoke of "boogie." It's not supposed to mean anything other than dancing.

    "Oogie" rhymes with Boogie. It was made up just for that.

    I assumed it meant dance till they could dance no more, possibly with a sexual undertone. However, I never worried too much about the meaning.
