“Kiss the Girl” Chameleon Circuit

Some people think the perfect fantasy is the girl next door
But my dream girl has got the keys to my heart and home
I never dreamed that in a million years
She’d settle for me

This room’s to let, I only advertised this morning
But here you are with three months rent and references that shine beyond
Belief
Take me to my room, you said
No time to lose, you said
And now you’re making omelets and you ask me
“Who’s that girl on the fridge?”
And I’m telling my life story
But I guess she’s too good for me

She’s not my girlfriend
She’s just a friend who’s a girl
She’s my buddy, she’s my best mate
She rocks my world
I wanna tell her, but I just can’t find the time
Or find the words
Oh, for God’s sake, kiss the girl

A quiet night in, but we won’t even know you’re here
No phones, no interruptions
Maybe now’s my chance to tell her how I feel
But now you’re here and I can’t think
So why not stay and have a drink?
I don’t mind if you don’t mind
Do you want to stay?
I don’t mind
Great

And now she’s going to live with monkeys
See the world and disappear
Am I what’s keeping her here?

She’s not my girlfriend
She’s just a friend who’s a girl
She’s my buddy, she’s my best mate
She rocks my world
I wanna tell her, but I just can’t find the time
Or find the words
Oh, for God’s sake, kiss the girl

I can’t take this anymore
I want you to go, cause you’re talking to a cat
And everybody loves you, and you’re better than me at football and my job
And now Sophie’s all “Monkeys, monkeys, monkeys”
You’re going to take her away from me

Alright, I didn’t want to do this
But it might be the only way
The world will end if you don’t concentrate on why you want to stay
So, Mr. Sofa Man, what’s keeping you here?

Sophie
I don’t wanna leave
Sophie
I can’t leave
Sophie
I love you, Sophie

But what about the monkeys?
Oh, not again, not when the world’s about to burn
Just, for God’s sake
Kiss the girl

And now that I have been a raging nerd for you, dear galleons, I’m going to go watch the Doctor Who episode this song is a reference to.

The Lodger, in case you were confused.
