2.
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

  And while you're at it - leave the night light on inside
 
     B   /    F#      G#m  /  F#
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
 
 
 
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
