They Might Be Giants

They Might Be Giants (sometimes abbreviated as TMBG) is an American alternative band formed in 1982 by John Flansburgh and John Linnell. During TMBG's early years Flansburgh and Linnell were frequently accompanied by a drum machine. In the early 1990s, TMBG became a full band. Currently, the members of TMBG are Flansburgh, Linnell, Marty Beller, Dan Miller, and Danny Weinkauf. They are best known for an unconventional and experimental style of alternative music. Over their career, the group has found success on the modern rock and CMJ charts. More recently they have found success in children's music, and in theme music for several television programs and films. more »

In the overgrowth 
Of the underbrush
Shone a fossil tooth 
Which I must have dropped
Very long ago
Which reminded me 
How we wound up where we are now

Right through those trees
I'm not insane
That's where we came 
Into this place
And if you squint
If you squint your brain
I'll get my paints 
And I'll try to paint

Canajoharie
Canajoharie
Where a frog flipper first evolved on the day 
When a daring mudskipper dragged itself away

Out of Canajoharie
Canajoharie
Call me sentimental 
But I want to go back 
And commemorate the place 
With a historical plaque

It's as if a fin 
Reaching from the swamp
Grabbed me by my arm
Tried to pull me in
But my arm was strong
And the fin was an 
Inaccurately reconstructed fake

It was right through those trees
I'm not insane
That's where the fin 
Tried to drag me in
Don't look at me
Look at where I'm pointing
Close your eyes 
See what I see

Canajoharie
Canajoharie
I get the creeping feeling 
All my old friends are gone
And that this baby tooth 
No longer fits in my skull

If you can draw 
It in the air
Or write it down
Then you weren't there
What's gone is mute
Someone changed the truth
They swapped the proof 
And there's nothing left of

Canajoharie
Canajoharie
Where a frog flipper first evolved on the day 
When a daring mudskipper dragged itself away

Where a rocket ship 
Experiment went awry
When the prototype 
Exploded on the launching site

Like in Canajoharie
Canajoharie
Call me sentimental 
But I want to go back
And commemorate the place 
With a historical plaque
