Birdhouse In Your Soul  They Might Be Giants

I[B]'m your only fr[E]iend, I'm not your o[D]nly friend
But [FBut reD]ally I'm not a[C]ctually your fr[F
[B]Blue canary in the ou[E]tlet by the light switch [B]Who watches o[E]ver you?
[B]make a l[FD]Not to put too f[G]ine a point on it s[D]ay I'm the only b[G]ee in your bonnet
[D]make a l[Bm]ittle bir[G]dhouse [F
[B]  [E]  [B]  [E] 
[B]  I have a se[E]cret to tell [B]  from my ele[E]ctrical well
[B]  it's a s[Frepeat

so the room must listen to me - filibuster vigilantly
my name is blue canary - one note spelled l-i-t-e

[Git d[F

[GEb]   [Db]   [Ab]   [Eb] 
I[GBut DBut reB]ally I'm not a[A]ctually your fr[F
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

repeat Chorus

Chorus (2):
[B]  And wh[E]ile you're at it - le[B]ave the night light [E]on inside
the b[B]irdhouse [Fnot to put too fine a point on it - say I'm the only bee in your bonnet
make a little birdhouse in your soul

Chorus (both parts):
Blue canary in the outlet by the light switch And while you're at it,
who watches over you? leave the night light on inside
make a little birdhouse in your soul 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

Repeat chorus with both parts

Words aren't all there. Very confusing.

It's all messed up, basically.

Is there a way to revert to a previous version of this page? Someone edited it and it's all wrong. I can't remember the original chords or else I'd fix it myself.
