Birdhouse In Your Soul

by They Might Be Giants

{intro}
I'm your only friend
I'm not your only friend
But I'm a little glowing friend
But really I'm not actually your friend
But I am

/ A D / - C / E G / C BbE / A - - - /

{refrain}
Blue canary in the outlet by the light switch 
Who watches over you 
Make a little birdhouse in your soul 
Not to put too fine a point on it 
Say I'm the only bee in your bonnet 
Make a little birdhouse in your soul 

/ A D / A D / AE F#mD / C F / / CAm FE (A D A D) / 

I have a secret to tell
From my electrical well
It's a simple message and I'm leaving out the whistles and bells
So the room must listen to me
Filibuster vigilantly 
My name is blue canary one note spelled L I T E
My story's infinite, like the Longines Symphonette
It doesn't rest 

/ A D / / AE A7 D E / 1st / / 3rd / F#m F#m+ F#m6 F#m+ / E /

{refrain} 

{intro} 

There's a picture opposite me 
Of my primitive ancestry 
Which stood on rocky shores and kept the beaches shipwreck free 
Though I respect that a lot I'd be fired if that were my job 
After killing Jason off and countless screaming Argonauts 
Bluebird of friendliness 
Like guardian angels its always near 

{refrain} 

{as refrain} 
And while you're at it 
Keep the nightlight on inside the 
Birdhouse in your soul 
Not to put too fine a point on it 
Say I'm the only bee in your bonnet 
Make a little birdhouse in your soul 

{refrain}
