If you posted the error (and maybe 20 surrounding lines of code it would
be easier to help you..

No, happy does not beep on them. happy is a stupid machine which
transforms your grammar into code transforming states.
Eg if you return "foo" instead of the parser result happy will correctly
create a .hs file which will then fail to compile.

Happy only copy pastes your code.
