“Birdhouse in Your Soul” by They Might Be Giants

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 its 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

(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

Blue canary in the outlet by the light switch (and while you’re at it)
Who watches over you (keep the nightlight on inside the)
Make a little birdhouse in your soul (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 (and while you’re at it)
Who watches over you (keep the nightlight on inside the)
Make a little birdhouse in your soul (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

“Once in a Lifetime” by Talking Heads

And you may find yourself
Living in a shotgun shack
And you may find yourself
In another part of the world

And you may find yourself
Behind the wheel of a large automobile
And you may find yourself in a beautiful house
With a beautiful wife
And you may ask yourself, well
How did I get here?

Letting the days go by, let the water hold me down
Letting the days go by, water flowing underground
Into the blue again after the money’s gone
Once in a lifetime, water flowing underground

And you may ask yourself
How do I work this?
And you may ask yourself
Where is that large automobile?
And you may tell yourself
This is not my beautiful house!
And you may tell yourself
This is not my beautiful wife!

Letting the days go by, let the water hold me down
Letting the days go by, water flowing underground
Into the blue again after the money’s gone
Once in a lifetime, water flowing underground

Same as it ever was
Same as it ever was
Same as it ever was
Same as it ever was
Same as it ever was
Same as it ever was
Same as it ever was
Same as it ever was

Water dissolving and water removing
There is water at the bottom of the ocean
Under the water, carry the water
Remove the water at the bottom of the ocean!

Letting the days go by, let the water hold me down
Letting the days go by, water flowing underground
Into the blue again in the silent water
Under the rocks, and stones there is water underground

Letting the days go by, let the water hold me down
Letting the days go by, water flowing underground
Into the blue again after the money’s gone
Once in a lifetime, water flowing underground

And you may ask yourself
What is that beautiful house?
And you may ask yourself
Where does that highway go to?
And you may ask yourself
Am I right? Am I wrong?
And you may say yourself, “My God! What have I done?”

Letting the days go by, let the water hold me down
Letting the days go by, water flowing underground
Into the blue again in to the silent water
Under the rocks and stones, there is water underground

Letting the days go by, let the water hold me down
Letting the days go by, water flowing underground
Into the blue again after the money’s gone
Once in a lifetime, water flowing underground

Same as it ever was
Same as it ever was
Same as it ever was
Look where my hand was
Time isn’t holding up
Time isn’t after us
Same as it ever was
Same as it ever was
Same as it ever was
Same as it ever was
Same as it ever was
Same as it ever was
Same as it ever was
Same as it ever was
Same as it ever was

Letting the days go by (same as it ever was)
Letting the days go by (same as it ever was)
Once in a lifetime
Letting the days go by
Letting the days go by

“Half-Truism” by the Offspring

One is for envy and one just for spite
The cuts in my heart, they show me your eyes
Don’t make it better by twisting knife
Turns all by itself, on to someone else

Your self-liberation, we’ll leave this behind
Beyond slings and arrows that rain on our minds
You’ll make it better shaking it off
It never mattered anyway

If we don’t make it alive, it’s a hell of a good day to die
All our light that shines strong only lasts for so long
And it’s ashes to ashes again, should we even try to pretend?
All our light that shines strong only lasts for so long

The banner you’re waving is burning and red
It’s blocking the sun light that shines overhead
You against the world, diamonds and pearls
Voices inside you churn, watch the city burn

Your own liberation will leave them behind
All the slings and arrows that rain on your mind
Don’t make it better break it ’cause
It never mattered anyway

If we don’t make it alive, it’s a hell of a good day to die
All our light that shines strong only lasts for so long
And it’s ashes to ashes again, should we even try to pretend?
All our light that shines strong only lasts for so long

I won’t calm down

The banner you’re waving is burning and red
You against the world, diamonds and pearls
It never mattered, mattered,
Mattered anyway

If we don’t make it alive, it’s a hell of a good day to die
All our light that shines strong only lasts for so long
And it’s ashes to ashes again, should we even try to pretend?
All our light that shines strong only lasts for so long

All our light that shines strong only lasts for so long

“Another Saturday Night” by Sam Cooke

[Chorus: ]
Another Saturday night and I ain’t got nobody
I’ve got some money cause I just got paid
Now how I wish I had someone to talk to

I’m in an awful way

I got in town a month ago
I’ve seen a lot of girls since then
If I could meet ’em I could get ’em
But as yet I haven’t met ’em
That’s how I’m in the state I’m in

[Chorus]

Another fella told me
He had a sister who looked just fine
Instead of being my deliverance
She had a strange resemblance
To a cat named Frankenstein

[Chorus]

It’s hard on a fella
When he don’t know his way around
If I don’t find me a honey
To help me spend my money
I’m gonna have to blow this town

Another Saturday night and I ain’t got nobody
I’ve got some money cause I just got paid
Now how I wish I had someone to talk to
I’m in an awful way

Another Saturday night and I ain’t got nobody
I’ve got some money cause I just got paid
Now how I wish I had someone to talk to
I’m in an awful ooo
I’m in an awful way
He’s in an awful way

I’m in an awful ooo
I’m in an awful way
He’s in an awful way
I’m in an awful way

“2AM” by Bear Hands

I would never ask you
To do something I wouldn’t do
I could never lose you
At least I’d never choose to

All your friends are sober
Yeah we’re getting older
Going out’s a drag now
All my spots have closed
And we can fantasize
Without much of a mess
And making love is fine
But all I want is to forget
How old I am

(Can’t remember anything else)
Nothing good happens past two a.m.
I put the ball in your court
Text me back
I want a full report
I want cash in hand
I’m still waiting for my man
(Has he even left the house?)
Short a couple dollars but I think he’ll understand
I put my best dress on, get back in bed
Nothing good happens past two a.m.

Can’t turn back, it’s too late
I saw you drink the Kool-Aid
But I don’t want no undue
Attention coming from you

All your friends are sober
Yeah we’re getting older
Staying in at home
It’s good enough for both us
Free to fantasize
Without hearing “I told ya”
Making love is fine
But all I want is to forget
How old I am

(Can’t remember anything else)
Nothing good happens past two a.m.
I put the ball in your court
Text me back
I want a full report
I want cash in hand
I’m still waiting for my man
(Has he even left the house?)
Short a couple dollars but I think he’ll understand
I put my best dress on, get back in bed
Nothing good happens past two a.m.

And what I thought was possible don’t seem possible no more
I struggle to keep up with you
And what I thought was possible don’t seem possible no more
I never could keep up with you
Can we forget how old I am?

(Can’t remember anything else)
Nothing good happens past two a.m.
I put the ball in your court
Text me back
I want a full report
I want cash in hand
I’m still waiting for my man
(Has he even left the house?)
Twenty-seven years young don’t make sense
I put my best dress on, get back in bed
Nothing good happens past two a.m.

Amen

“Merry Go ‘Round” by Kacey Musgraves

If you ain’t got two kids by 21, you’re probably gonna die alone.
At least that’s what tradition told you.
And it don’t matter if you don’t believe, come Sunday morning
You best be there in the front row like you’re supposed to.

Same hurt in every heart.
Same trailer, different park.

Mama’s hooked on Mary Kay.
Brother’s hooked on Mary Jane
Daddy’s hooked on Mary two doors down.
Mary, Mary quite contrary.
We get bored, so, we get married
Just like dust, we settle in this town.
On this broken merry go ’round and ’round and ’round we go
Where it stops nobody knows
And it ain’t slowin’ down
This merry go ’round.

We think the first time’s good enough.
So, we hold on to high school love.
Sayin’ we won’t end up like our parents.
Tiny little boxes in a row, ain’t whatcha want, it’s whatcha know.
Just happy in the shoes you’re wearin’.
Same checks we’re always cashin’
To buy a little more distraction.

‘Cause mama’s hooked on Mary Kay.
Brother’s hooked on Mary Jane
Daddy’s hooked on Mary two doors down.
Mary, Mary, quite contrary.
We get bored, so, we get married.
Just like dust, we settle in this town.
On this broken merry go ’round and ’round and ’round we go
Where it stops nobody knows,
And it ain’t slowin’ down.
This merry go ’round.

Mary, Mary, quite contrary.
We’re so bored until we’re buried.
Just like dust, we settle in this town.
On this broken merry go ’round.
Merry go ’round.

Jack and Jill went up the hill.
Jack burned out on booze and pills.
And Mary had a little lamb.
Mary just don’t give a damn no more.

“No More ‘I Love You’s'” by Annie Lennox

Do be do be do do do oh
Do be do be do do do oh

I used to be a lunatic from the gracious days
I used to feel woebegone and so restless nights
My aching heart would bleed for you to see
Oh, but now
I don’t find myself bouncing home
Whistling buttonhole tunes to make me cry

No more I love you’s
The language is leaving me
No more I love you’s
Changes are shifting
Outside the words

The lover speaks about the monsters
I used to have demons in my room at night
Desire, despair, desire
So many monsters

Oh, but now
I don’t find myself bouncing around
Whistling my conscience to make me cry

No more I love you’s
The language is leaving me
No more I love you’s
The language is leaving me in silence
No more I love you’s
Changes are shifting
Outside the words

And people are being real crazy
But we will only come
And you know what mommy?
Everybody was being real crazy
The monsters are crazy
There are monsters outside

No more I love you’s
The language is leaving me
No more I love you’s
The language is leaving me in silence
No more I love you’s
Changes are shifting outside the words
Outside the words

No more I love you’s
The language is leaving me
No more I love you’s
The language is leaving me
No more I love you’s
Changes are shifting outside the words

Do be do be do do do oh
Do be do be do do do oh
Outside the words

“A Place Called Slaughter Race” by Sarah Silverman from Ralph Breaks the Internet

[Intro: Sarah Silverman]
What can it be that calls me to this place today?
This lawless car ballet
What can it be?
Am I a baby pigeon, sprouting wings to soar?
Was that a metaphor?
Hey, there’s a Dollar Store
Look, I’m rhyming;
My spirit’s climbing
As I’m called through this fog of mace
To this place called Slaughter Race

[Verse: Cast of Ralph Breaks the Internet, Gal Gadot, & Sarah Silverman]
Welcome back, watch your head
Hate to see you end up dead
Let’s get this party rolling
Is that appliance stolen?
We have
Fallen wires, dumpster fires, creepy clowns, and burning tires
That great white in the sewer
You’ll be happy that you knew her (Fin bump)
Dogs and cats, they sure taste great
With a side of license plate
Some flag us deplorable
Well, I think you’re adorable
We may be a motley crew, but our hearts ring true
And just for you, a face tattoo

[Interlude: Cast of Ralph Breaks the Internet]
Ah, Slaughter Race, ooh-ooh-oh

[Bridge: Sarah Silverman, Gal Gadot, & Both]
My heart’s in flight, and, wow, it’s a blast
Feels like my dreams are real at last
No trace of a frown upon your face
Flying so fast
Setting the pace
Living the life
Loving the chase
Now is the time
Here is the place
This Slaughter Race

[Outro: Sarah Silverman & Cast of Ralph Breaks the Internet]
I know I should go
But home feels so slow
These roads are paved with dreams
Happy dreams, not creepy clown dreams
What would Ralph say if it turns out I stay
In this place called Slaughter Race?
In this place called Slaughter Race
