Wombats, The - Bee-Sting Lyrics




Jumping like a dog on Prozac
And fishing with dynamite
I thought that I was in the green
But it turns red every time

You drive me crazier
Than a wingless bee
You drive me crazier than I ought to be
I'll put your best dress on, better make it black
I'm going out but I'm not coming back

Hit by a lightning bolt
Now there's tire marks on the street
I think I quite like this tune
But couldn't you find a bigger beat

You drive me crazier
Than a wingless bee
You drive me crazier than I ought to be
I'll put your best dress on, better make it black
I'm going out but I'm not coming back
I'm not coming back

I don't know where I fit anymore
I snap the key when I try to lock the door
The canyons are up in flames
And englands misspelt my name
I don't know where I fit anymore

You drive me crazier
Than a wingless bee
You drive me crazier than I wanna be
I'll put your best dress on, better make it black
I'm going out but I'm not coming

You drive me crazier
Than a wingless bee
You drive me crazier than I wanna be
I'll put your best dress on, better make it black
I'm going out but I'm not coming back
I'm not coming back
I'm not coming back

Wombats, The Bee-Sting Comments
  1. jopunfromtarget -

    The 89 dislikes were all bees

  2. Jeff Rickstrew

    You guys rock! Fuck the critics!

  3. Mc_Mt

    The bass guitar synth at 1:08, is it used in any other popular songs? I feel like I heard it somewhere else but can’t figure it out.

  4. mshtnanico

    Red gone get redresredred

  5. Arleonic八神

    Going to see you guys live in Manchester today!Can’t wait,been waiting for 5 months!

  6. E WHIT

    going to see them on the 6th july

    CANT WAITTTTT luv the wombats

  7. Ells

    Next time my friends say that the wombats are bad I'm just gonna play this song and if they don't like it then there's something wrong with them 😂😂😂

  8. Engie Ramirez Cote

    Please please please come to the U.S. omg I'm literally obsessed with your music, like every single song

  9. Amna

    It’s such a feel-good, nostalgic song

  10. Johnny Prass

    Reminds me of Tatterdemalion by Kape Yeel

  11. Kloe w

    that made me dizzy ngl

  12. Six String Epic

    I've gotta be honest, I'm pretty angry I haven't listened to them sooner. They're such a well rounded band.

  13. JTHusmann

    I like the Wombats, they’re extremely talented musicians/vocalist.. but they need to just outsource their lyric writing. A lot of their songs sound like a junior high kid wrote the lyrics. Crazier than a wingless bee? I mean, for fucks sake. Lol

  14. William Sands

    You should do a remake of kill the director

  15. John Beadle

    Absolutely love this song and this band!

  16. Finlay Newton

    Anyone got a tab for the riff in the middle or the bass tab? Want to learn this with my band

  17. Tony Lane

    Meaning anyone? Great song!

  18. Tdc Willies

    Holy shit I keep replaying this

  19. Maks_wan

    It's a masterpiece

  20. kathreen villavende

    Seriously and honestly speaking, I LOVE ALL THEIR SONGS

  21. Comedy Quotes

    What guitar is that? epiphone dot?

  22. The Fat Italian

    This song sounds like 2005 alternative, and I love it!

  23. Luke Herren

    Sequential Prophet-5, MiniMoog Model D, Roland Juno 60... a veritable synth triumvirate.

  24. Roger Jones

    Dig the song but aboot to barf all over watching the video.

  25. Fordo

    The death of every relationship has consequences

  26. XaLER!K

    yeah! i like it

  27. ChrisX2

    Love the song but part of me misses the old Wombats from where they first started and first 3 albums.

    she1by

    I like their first 3 albums as well but I think they've stayed fairly consistent with their style.

  28. Planet Records Cuba / La Oficina Secreta

    Great Music Guys! saludos desde Cuba

  29. Erick Salgado

    "21st Century Blues" was my most played song of 2016, "Greek Tragedy" was the song I discovered them with and it was an instant love, it is in my number 2 most played songs of 2015 on my Spotify Charts, glad they are finally started to be noticed !!!

  30. Fordo

    Ohh. bee have.....(in my best Austin Powers impersonation)

  31. Noodle

    This song has been stuck in my head for two straight days. It’s so catchy

  32. Cerys EG

    My favourite band EVER!!! ❤❤❤

  33. Megan Kirkland

    All I can say is 'Wow!' This song is the perfect rock song. Catchy tune, great lyrics. I have only heard it once on the radio, and, quite frankly, I'm shocked that I am not hearing it everywhere. Have a strong feeling I will, though. This song should be a massive hit, probably by Spring of 2019. Hope the station heads at iHeart Radio realize this song is a gem! I could never imagine getting bored with this. Wombats, you rock!

    The Wombats

    Thanks Megan! Glad you like it 🙏🏻

  34. Osko Civile

    Song of the year this one

  35. Slingerlandia Music Publishing

    The Wombats....bringing back the ROCK! My kids dig this band, perhaps there is a future for relevant rock music still.

  36. Juan Gonzalez

    At first I thought this was death cab for cutie

  37. Tina

    i’m oBSESSED with this cinematography omg
    not to mention the song, duh

  38. GoguisOwO

    I love this song❤️❤️❤️

  39. alien

    I feel like I need to tell the world about this band. I love all of the songs I've heard so far 😍

  40. Jin Hong Park

    Great song! I listened to this song 100 times today.

  41. Steven Guerrero

    As much as I love The Wombats playing live, this masterpiece should have a different Music Video.

  42. haku

    literally can't fault this band for one bad song

  43. bella

    this location looks way too similar to greek tragedy

  44. BLIGH Band

    This video feels like something out of the MTV era. I love it!

  45. Toby MCNEIL

    This band has been with me my whole life and I can’t stop watching it and it never gets old.

    The Wombats

    Thanks for all the support Toby!

    Toby MCNEIL

    I’m so excited to get your comment. I am 12 years old and early this year my dad took my to see

  53. Samuel Powell

    Been listening to the wombats for ages now, can't believe it, I remember when let's dance to joy division came out and moving to new York. I like this sound they are making in this new tune, i wasnt a massive fan of some of there more electronic poppy stuff. btw my band has just released a brand new single, would mean a lot to us if you came and checked it out, try searching The Stumble and Shake - Haha , you may be in for a surprise!
