about

Lately, Andy has been writing a good deal of songs about bad girls and the boys who love them. In fact, that was going to be the name of the full-length CD that ended up being this 5-song EP "What She Did".

The condensed version serves as a post card, a lovesick letter to a few of the eponymous ladies and the adventures they wrought. He recorded these tracks with the help of producer/musician Eric Shiveley, at Desert Air Recording studio in Alamosa, Colorado.

Andy's guiding principle was that each song connect with the hips, heart or head, and with luck, all three. Despite the title's suggestion that the songs are invective set to music, the outlook is steadfastly optimistic.

Track Name: That's What She Did to Me
That's What She Did to Me
(c) 2009 Andy Ard

She's a killer, she'll tear your heart out
Believe me, I know what I'm talking about
She'll put your head upon a silver tray
Do it to someone else the very next day
Get any closer and man, you'll see
That's what she did to me

Take another look before you mess around
She'll let you fall in love and then she'll get out of town
Have your heart and soul hanging by a string
And leave you sad and lonely while she's doing her thing
At least I hope so, 'cause brother you see,
That's what she did to me

No, don't go for the line she's feeding you
She'll leave you sad and lonely and blue
Stomp all over you just for something to do

[Instrumental]

You're thinking you're the only one she's gonna love
But trust me brother, I know what she's thinking of
I know because I stole her from another man
Now he and I are victims of the same old plan
Soon you'll be joining us, the membership's free
'Cause that's what she did to me
That's what she did to me
That's what she did to me
Track Name: Baby Don't Care
Baby Don't Care
(c) 2002 Andy Ard

Baby called me up about an hour ago
Said won't you take me to the rock 'n' roll show
Asked which one, she said 'I don't know'
Just come and get me 'cause I'm ready to go

My baby don't care who's playing the tune
Baby don't care if we go to the moon
Baby don't care but it better be soon
My baby don't care, my baby don't care

We're driving around baby gave me a glance
Baby says 'Hey, I wanna get up and dance'
I says 'What about a night of romance?'
She said 'Get me to the club or you ain't got a chance'

Baby don't care, leave your coat at the door
Baby don't care, just get on the floor
Baby don't care, just gimme some more
My baby don't care, my baby don't care

Do you remember how to twist and shout?
Did you forget what rock and roll's about?
Baby, baby, rock 'n' roll, I wanna
Baby, baby, rock 'n' roll, I wanna
Baby, baby, rock 'n' roll, I wanna
Baby don't care, my baby don't care

Baby called about an hour ago
Said won't you take me to the rock 'n' roll show
Just come and get me 'cause I'm ready to go, go, go

Baby don't care
Baby don't care
Baby don't care
Track Name: Wonderful
Wonderful
(c) 2001 Andy Ard

Ooh, Wonderful was all I had to say
spent an evening in your arms before I went away

Your eyes were bright and all that I could see
Everything else disappeared, it was only you and me

Well I could write a thousand songs about that moment
so I can sing them all to you, when we can be together
and never have to say goodbye again

Ooh, wonderful, even if we go on separately
I'll always have a favorite memory

(Instrumental)

I wonder what you even saw in me
Was it a reflection of the beauty that I see?

So what to do about this feeling, I don't know
but I won't let it worry me
I'll let the wonder go and take me where it will
but is that all there is, I wonder
do you feel the same way too?
Wonderful, ooh,
Wonderful
Track Name: This May Be
This may be
(c) 2008 Andy Ard

This may be the moment I've been waiting for
If the time is right, I'll know just what to do
But I can't see beyond the hazy neverness of now

Do I dare make a mess of everything
Hesitate or stumble right ahead
Do I, don't I have a shred of certainty left in me
'Cause I need it tonight
Oh how right
This may be

This may be the only one to come along
But how would I know if it never has before
Well not like this, you see, all the other ones were different
At least I think that's how it went

This may be the day I hang up all my fears
Make myself a possibility
Why not, I'm not gonna pass this way again
When forever does me in
But not tonight
I won't fight what this may be
this may be
Track Name: Camp Ootahneenohchee
Camp Ootahneenohchee
(c) 2002 Andy Ard

At Camp Ootahneenohchee where I met a girl called Jennifer my first kiss found me by the adirondacks boy do I miss her she grew up and got married to the VP of a company 'cause her mother wouldn't have her baby settle for the likes of me so they made a lot of money, started squeezing out the puppies and they sent them off to private school so they could become yuppies but they grew up too, and so they faltered out into the wild but they were ill-equipped for coping like an ordinary child so they had neuroses and complexes and took it out on everyone but all they wanted to hear from their father was 'I love you son' but that'll never happen while that bugger is alive because he didn't get the same and he just wouldn't empathize, oh well but what about our Jennifer, the girl from the camp who shared with me her lip gloss while mosquitoes buzzed around the lamp? I bet you she is somewhere deep inside a painted castle but she bargained off vitality because to leave would be a hassle I know even if she and I were never meant to be together she would be much happier without the things he had to get her simple pleasures are just that, they never cost a lot but maybe I'm just saying that because it's all that I've got but if she ever makes her mind up to get out of there and if I clean up my apartment and I buy new underwear will she be so enamored by the recollection of our rendezvous that one day she will go for broke and say she does and I will too well these are things that keep me wondering about the future 'cause the present tells me something and I say, "whoa, man, are you sure?" 'cause if you are playing me, I'm going to boycott every calendar until you show me how a guy can make some time with her I know a lot of people think of it as maybe an obsession but I bet if you asked her she'll say she also learned a lesson so if you don't mind, I'll hold on to my little fantasy where a summer camp encounter turns into reality meaning someone whom I've never met at least in twenty years comes out of nowhere and professes that she often visits here at Camp Ootahneenohchee over there by the river where she waits for me until I ask her "can we go together?"

Yeah!
