Subject: RE: Lyr Req: Plastic Paddy (Eric Bogle)
Wee Eric knows the music world ... and its working singers ... very well. I know several who have to be "Plastic Paddies", at times, to pay the rent. They know the truth of this song well ... and love it.
And they know there are people out in the audience who would squeeze them dry for another drop of phoney sentimentality ... and they still have to pay the rent!
