Subject: RE: Lyr Req: The Happiest Day by Hamish Imlach
That would be about right, but I'd think that the 1st word in the 2nd line of the 2nd verse might be "paralytic", not "paraplegic", unless Hamish was making a play on words.
The "mascara" reference makes sense, but I absolutely guarantee that when I heard Hamish sing the song in the 80s, he sang about "cascara"in the 3rd verse.
