about

I held my daughter in my arms and contemplated the complex family histories that brought her into being. She looked thoughtful, and I got a warm feeling. Down my arm. So here's a little ditty about baby's complex ethnic heritage. And pee!

lyrics

You're just peein'
like any human bein'
like any other bein' might pee

A Tennessean
or a Pomeranian
lifting up his leg beside a tree

Urine! Urine! You're in America!
Urine! Urine! You're in America!

American in your mind
European in your diaper

You're just peein'
like any human bein'
like any other bein' might pee

A North Korean
or a South Korean
in two latrines across the DMZ

Urine! Urine! You're in America!
Urine! Urine! You're in America!

American in your mind
European in your diaper
