Don't Go For The One - Gaelic Storm
I bumped into Harvey back home last year
"I was down in the snail shop she told me to go
the one, the one, don't go for the one.
According to the song, what is Harvey's reservation price for an evening with his friend the narrator, as illustrated by his behavior? What are the opportunity costs of Harvey's activities? Why do people partake in what to outsiders seems like risky behavior? Put yourself in Harvey's shoes and justify his behavior in cost-benefit terms. Are his costs really that "the misses will kill me/I'll surely be done"?
