Not to put to fine a point on it

I cant get this song out of my head for some reason. I started singing the corus on the way to work and now I’m singing the whole song to myself as I work. They Might Be Giants have a lot to answer for!

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, I am

Blue canary in the alcove by the light switch

Who watches over you?
Make a little birdhouse in your soul
Not to put a fine 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 spelt L-I-T-E
My story’s infinite
Like the Longines Symphonette it doesn’t rest

Blue canary in the alcove by the light switch
Who watches over you?

Make a little birdhouse in your soul
Not to put a fine 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 of 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 quiet if that were my job
After killing Jason off
And countless screaming Argonauts

Blue bird of friendliness

Like guardian angels it’s always near
Blue canary in the alcove by the lightswitch
Who watches over you
Make a little birdhouse in your soul
Not to put to fine a point on it
Say I’m the only bee in your bonnet

Make a little birdhouse in your soul
While you’re at it
Keep the nightlight on in the birdhouse in your soul

Not to put to 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 alcove near the lightswitch
Who watches over you
Make a little birdhouse in your soul
Not to put to 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 alcove near the lightswitch
While you’re at it
Who watches over you
Make a little birdhouse in your soul

Not to put to fine a point on it
Say I’m the only bee in your bonnet
Make a little birdhouse in your soul
