INTRO
C             Dm7                   Eb
I'm your only friend - I'm not your only friend
    F            Bb
But I'm a little glowing friend
    Cm             Db            G                     | C | % |
But really I'm not actually your friend, but I am


CHORUS
C                   F
 Blue canary in the outlet by the light switch
C            F    G
 Who watches over you
C       G      F                 Eb
 Make a little birdhouse in your soul
               Ab                    
Not to put too fine a point on it
Eb               Ab
Say I'm the only bee in your bonnet
Eb      Cm     Ab        G      [ C ]
 Make a little birdhouse in your soul

VERSE
C         F
 I have a secret to tell 
C         F
 From my electrical well
C       G      C7
 It's a simple message 
        F               G
And I'm leaving out the whistles and bells


VERSE
C                 F
 So the room must listen to me
C           F
 Filibuster vigilantly
C  G       C7
My name is blue canary 
F                  G
One-word spelled l-i-t-e


BRIDGE
Am          F
 My story’s infinite
Am6                F              G
 Like the Longines Symphonette it doesn't rest


CHORUS
C                   F
 Blue canary in the outlet by the light switch
C            F    G
 Who watches over you
C       G      F                 Eb
 Make a little birdhouse in your soul
               Ab                    
Not to put too fine a point on it
Eb               Ab
Say I'm the only bee in your bonnet
Eb      Cm     Ab        G      [ C ]
 Make a little birdhouse in your soul

INTRO
A             Bm7                   C
I'm your only friend - I'm not your only friend
    D            G       
But I'm a little glowing friend
    Am             Bb            G  
But really I'm not actually your friend, but I am


VERSE
C                  F
 There’s a picture opposite me
C                F
 Of my primitive ancestry
C      G        C7
 Which stood on rocky shores 
    F                G
And kept the beaches shipwreck free


VERSE
C           F
 Though I respect that a lot
C                F
 I'd be fired if that were my job
C      G       C7
 After killing Jason off
    F                   G
And countless screaming argonauts


BRIDGE
Am           F
 Bluebird of friendliness
Am6            F           G
 Like guardian angels it’s always near


CHORUS 
C                   F
 Blue canary in the outlet by the light switch
C            F    G
 Who watches over you
C       G      F                 Eb
 Make a little birdhouse in your soul
               Ab
Not to put too fine a point on it
Eb               Ab
Say I'm the only bee in your bonnet
Eb      Cm     Ab        G      [ C ]
 Make a little birdhouse in your soul


CHORUS (variation)
C      F                   C                   F
       While you’re at it, keep the nite light on 
  G            C     G       F
Inside the birdhouse in your soul
Eb              Ab
 Not to put too fine a point on it
Eb               Ab   
Say I'm the only bee in your bonnet
Eb      Cm     Ab        G      | C |
 Make a little birdhouse in your soul

Leave the nite light on inside the birdhouse   in your soul
( Who watches        over you          Make a little  birdhouse in your soul)
Eb              Ab
 Not to put too fine a point on it
Eb               Ab   
Say I'm the only bee in your bonnet
Eb     Cm     Ab        G      [ C ]
Make a little birdhouse in your soul


CHORUS (+ counter melody - coda)
C                    F
                     While you’re at it 
 (Blue canary in the outlet by the light switch)
C                    F    G            C       G       F                [ Eb ]
Leave the nite light on inside the birdhouse   in your soul
( Who watches        over you          Make a little  birdhouse in your soul)
Eb              Ab
 Not to put too fine a point on it
Eb               Ab   
Say I'm the only bee in your bonnet
      (ritardando)
Eb     Cm     Ab        G       C
Make a little birdhouse in your soul
