Mug Slingin' Brawl


There was something goin' down way out on the edge of town.

I detected from its sound it was a brawl.

The sounds of broken glass and the bouncer on his ass

told me I should go and have a ball.

It's more fun than dancin' so come and watch 'em fall.

A mug slingin' brawl.


Well, I was in the middle of the fight of my life when a kitty caught my eye as a right flew by.

I'd love to sit and chat, but ya see here where I'm at.

I'm stuck in this mug-slingin' brawl.


By the time I reached the place there was whiskey on my face

from the throwing crew that had a few.

I ducked right in the way of a brawler making hay

and like the flying mugs I flew.

I staggered back and fell and then bagan to slowly crawl

for more mug-slingin' brawl.


Soon the kitty came around and found me on the ground

and said, we gotta get out of here.

She threw her whiskey glass, and grabbed my arm so fast,

but I reached for another beer.

She slapped me on the face and said she'd seen it all

in this mug-slingin' brawl.
