“Hair Of The Dog,” Nazareth
Ah, but the Scots have all the righteous brawling songs.
True story: the younger daughter, while listening to this song, commented, “Girls don't get much of a break, do they, Dad?”
“How do you mean, sweetie?”
“Well, if you want to call someone something bad, it's usually goes back to a girl, even if it's a guy. Like, 'Son of a bitch' or 'bastard.'”
Sad but true. On the other side of that token, however, the surest way to wound a fella is to deride his so-called “manhood.” The emotional frailty that lurks behind that comical flap of skin couldn't possibly be overstated.
A lesson for a little later, perhaps.
