“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
