"Kill The Director" as written by and Daniel Joseph/murphy Haggis....
I've met someone that makes me feel seasick
Oh, what a skill to have, oh, what a skill to have
So, many skills that make her distinctive
But they're not mine to have, no, they're not mine

Whenever she looks I read the nearest paper
No, I don't care about the soaps
No, I don't care about the soaps
Though I'm acting like I'm in an EastEnders episode

If this is a rom-com
Kill the director
If this is a rom-com
Kill the director, please

Carrots help us see much better in the dark
Don't talk to girls, they'll break your heart
And this is my head and this is my spout
They work together, they can't figure anything out

So, with the angst of a teenage band
Here's another song about a gender I'll never understand
Here's another song about a gender I'll never understand

If this is a rom-com
Kill the director
If this is a rom-com
Kill the director

If this is a rom-com
Kill the director, please

This is no Bridget Jones
This is no Bridget, Bridget
This is no Bridget Jones
This is no Bridget, Bridget

This is no Bridget Jones
This is no Bridget, Bridget
This is no Bridget Jones
This is no Bridget, Bridget

This is no Bridget Jones
This is no Bridget, Bridget
This is no Bridget Jones
This is no Bridget, Bridget

This is no Bridget Jones
This is no Bridget, Bridget Jones

    General CommentHe obviously loves the girl, in a typical teenagery blundering way. Has no idea what to do about it.
    "heres another song about a gender I'll never understand.
    he doesn't know how girls think (do any of us) and how to continue this.
    Baisically if this was a film, well its shite, because as the "hero" he can't do anything about it and the plot can't carry on.
    So if a film doesnt work, you blame the director. As he feels a bit strongly about it, he wants to "kill the director"
    "no bridget jones" = no happy ending.
    This is my head, this is my spout" is a referance to his brain and his sex drive, spout referring to penis. Even working together, they "can't figure anything out" which is how much this is an enigma to him.

    General CommentI really love the wombats but especially this song. To me it's about being in love with someone who's a bit out of your league and you're too shy to admit to it. Regardless of the meaning, it's one of the best songs I've ever heard.The lyrics are really witty and clever and they really flow, Long Live The Wombats!!!!!!
