For some reason, I most often turn on the television on this program, and I’ve learned to love it.
The theme song for Phineas and Ferb was written and performed by a well-known American band, Bowling for Soup. The song is entitled “Today Is Gonna Be a Great Day.” It is said that the band originally wrote a slower, “classic Disney song,” but the network felt they needed to appeal to modern children, hence the conception of the rock/alternative version.
In 2008, the song was nominated for a Primetime Emmy Award for Outstanding Main Title Theme Music, but eventually lost to the Pirate Master theme.
Phineas and Ferb theme song lyrics
There’s 104 days of summer vacation
And school comes along just to end it
So the annual problem for our generation
Is finding a good way to spend it
Building a rocket
Or fighting a mummy
Or climbing up the Eiffel Tower
Discovering something that doesn’t exist (Hey!)
Or giving a monkey a shower
Surfing tidal waves
Or locating Frankenstein’s brain (It’s over here!)
Finding a dodo bird
Painting a continent
Or driving your sister insane (Phineas!)
As you can see
There’s a whole lot of stuff to do
Before school starts this fall (Come on Perry)
So stick with us ’cause Phineas and Ferb
Are gonna do it all
So stick with us ’cause Phineas and Ferb are
Gonna do it all!
(Mom! Phineas and Ferb are making a title sequence!)
Watch & listen
