Everyone wants to know where Andy is from. People can't quite figure out his accent with all its rrrolling r's. Is it Scottish? Irish? Dutch? Fake? Andy was born in Canada but grew up in Switzerland where he learned to speak Swiss German (make funny sounds with his mouth) and play with church organ pipes (and other instruments). ... more

Track Name: Uncle Sam
I’ve seen you rising to the top
The lightest substance in the pond.
It’s your schemes that have me worried,
Not if you’re black or blond.

I’ve seen you grab the steering wheel.
It’s true that’s quite a feat.
You’re driving home your freedom
To folks who need to eat.

Sad to think that maybe yes:
Them odd folks had it right:
If we want no terrorists,
Our leaders we must fight.

Uncle Sam, you got a war? Sorry, I cannot make it…
Uncle Sam, give me free trade? Sorry, I cannot take it.
Uncle Sam, you want my love? Sorry I cannot fake it.

They let us pick the conman,
Who does the moneys bidding,
Who says: this is democracy,
And of course he’s only kidding.

They let us cast a ballot.
Oh how very clever!
It’s a duty! It’s a right!
They never listen, ever.
