“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

“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

“Ashes” by Celine Dion from Deadpool 2

[Verse 1]
What’s left to say?
These prayers ain’t working anymore
Every word shot down in flames
What’s left to do with these broken pieces on the floor?
I’m losing my voice calling on you

[Pre-Chorus]
‘Cause I’ve been shaking
I’ve been bending backwards till I’m broke
Watching all these dreams go up in smoke

[Chorus]
Let beauty come out of ashes
Let beauty come out of ashes
And when I pray to God all I ask is
Can beauty come out of ashes?

[Verse 2]
Can you use these tears to put out the fires in my soul?
‘Cause I need you here, woah

[Pre-Chorus]
‘Cause I’ve been shaking
I’ve been bending backwards till I’m broke
Watching all these dreams go up in smoke

[Chorus]
Let beauty come out of ashes
Let beauty come out of ashes
And when I pray to God all I ask is
Can beauty come out of ashes?

[Outro]
Can beauty come out of ashes?

“You Oughta Know” by Alanis Morissette

I want you to know that I’m happy for you
I wish nothing but the best for you both

An older version of me
Is she perverted like me?
Would she go down on you in a theatre?
Does she speak eloquently?
And would she have your baby?
I’m sure she’d make a really excellent mother

‘Cause the love that you gave, that we made wasn’t able to make it enough for you to be open wide, no
And every time you speak her name
Does she know how you told me you’d hold me until you die, ’til you die?
But you’re still alive

And I’m here to remind you
Of the mess you left when you went away
It’s not fair to deny me
Of the cross I bear that you gave to me
You, you, you oughta know

You seem very well, things look peaceful
I’m not quite as well, I thought you should know

Did you forget about me,
Mr. Duplicity?
I hate to bug you in the middle of dinner
It was a slap in the face
How quickly I was replaced
And are you thinking of me when you fuck her?

‘Cause the love that you gave that we made wasn’t able to make it enough for you to be open wide, no
And every time you speak her name
Does she know how you told me you’d hold me until you die, ’til you die?
But you’re still alive

And I’m here to remind you
Of the mess you left when you went away
It’s not fair to deny me
Of the cross I bear that you gave to me
You, you, you oughta know

‘Cause the joke that you laid in the bed: that was me, and I’m not gonna fade as soon as you close your eyes
And you know it

And every time I scratch my nails down someone else’s back I hope you feel it
Well, can you feel it?

Well, I’m here to remind you
Of the mess you left when you went away
It’s not fair to deny me
Of the cross I bear that you gave to me
You, you, you oughta know

I am here to remind you
Of the mess you left when you went away
It’s not fair to deny me
Of the cross I bear that you gave to me
You, you, you oughta know

“Spiders & Snakes” by Jim Stafford

I remember when Mary Lou
Said, “you want to walk me home from school?”
Well, I said, “yes, I do”
She said, “I don’t have to go right home
And I’m the kind that likes to be alone some if you would”
I said, “me, too”

And so we took a stroll
Wound up down by the swimming hole
And she said, “do what you want to do”
I got silly and I found a frog
In the water by a hollow log
And I shook it at her and I said, “this frog’s for you”
She said

I don’t like spiders and snakes
And that ain’t what it takes to love me
You fool, you fool
I don’t like spiders and snakes
And that ain’t what it takes to love me
Like I want to be loved by you

Well, I think of that girl from time to time
I call her up when I got a dime
I say, “hello, baby”
She says, “ain’t you cool”
I say, “do you remember when?
And would you like to get together again?”
She says, “I’ll see you after school”

I was shy and so for a while
Most of my love was touch and smile
Till she said, “come on over here”
I was nervous, as you might guess
Still looking for something to slip down her dress
And she said, “let’s make it perfectly clear”
She said

I don’t like spiders and snakes
And that ain’t what it takes to love me
You fool, you fool
I don’t like spiders and snakes
And that ain’t what it takes to love me
Like I want to be loved by you
