Coopers satirical lyrics poke fun at that eras fashion for facial hair, giving a good moustache credit for success in life, love and even finances. This rollicking arrangement is given an almost operatic treatment, with soloists, choir and accompanist elaborating on the success stories told in each verse. All will enjoy this lively number, which ends with a big patter-song finale reminiscent of Rossini or Sullivan.
