Monday Mural

I'm linking up at Monday Mural hosted by Oakland Daily Photo.

July 2013 - Calgary Alberta

A mural at the Calgary Stampede grounds.

Hot Time In the Old Town Tonight

Late last night when we were all in bed,
Mrs. O'Leary left her lantern in the shed.
Well, the cow kicked it over, and this is what they said:
"There'll be a hot time in the old town tonight!"
When you hear those bells go ding-a-ling,
All join 'round and sweetly you must sing.
And when the verse is through, in the chorus all join in:
"There'll be a hot time in the old town tonight!"
For dramatic effect, shout out "FIRE, FIRE, FIRE" at the end of the first verse.

Silly variant: Ten nights dark when bed we all were in,
Old Leary lady hung the shed her lantern in,
And when the kick cowed it over, she eyed her wink and said
"There'll be town hot in the time old tonight!"


  1. oh i love this one! great colors too!

  2. I like how the artist just kept going around corners not allowing hardware to get in his way none.

  3. Great! I like how it goes around the corners too.

  4. I hear that the Calgary Stampede is quite the scene. It must be if a bar makes reference to the Chicago fire. Unless there are cowboys in Chicago I didn't know about. Really like the Western motif. Thanks for contributing to this week's Monday Mural.
