Lyrics:Birdhouse In Your Soul

From This Might Be A Wiki
Birdhouse In Your Soul
By: They Might Be Giants
Year: 1990

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

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

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

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

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

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 it's Always near

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

While you're at it Leave 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

(Blue canary in the outlet by the light switch) While you're at it (Who watches over you) Leave the nightlight on (Make a little birdhouse in your soul) 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

(Blue canary in the outlet by the light switch) While you're at it (Who watches over you) Leave the nightlight on (Make a little birdhouse in your soul) 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
