The Lyrics

This was originally posted to the Metric band forum. In a November 2004 show, the lead singer Emily Haines introduced "Combat Baby" with the title of this parody song as a joke.
I used to leave the night light on
There by your cage
Ever since you have been gone
I'm all in a rage
No pet for me
I want it like before
The others lick at my feet, fall asleep
Cats and farm dogs
But none of them wants to bite me

(chorus)
Wombat baby, come back baby
Bite off my leather jeans
Don't roam nightly
Wombat baby
I knew you'd never grow up easy
Wombat baby come back

Dig up the ground, I'm gonna find your tracks
Gonna get Irwin
He's huntin' crocs so fast
I want it like before
The others lick at my feet, fall asleep
I wanna be your mom
But no one here wants to find you like I do

(chorus)
Wombat baby, come back baby
Bite off my leather jeans
Don't roam nightly
Wombat baby
I knew you'd never grow up easy
Wombat baby come back

They take you like a prize
What's with those guys?
Zoos get it good
Every tiny wild hairy-nosed child
Every tiny wild hairy-nosed child
Bites me

Do doo doo doo do doo doo doo

wombat baby come back baby
wombat baby come back
bite bite bite bite bite bite bite bite baby
wombat baby come back

how I miss your grunting
do you miss my soft pillows?
