"Be a Squirrel"[1] is a song sung by Marshall Richards and Danny Jacob in the episode, "What'd I Miss?" while Phineas, Buford, Baljeet and Isabella help the squirrels to be wild again.


So you've been domesticated,  lost your identity
Buford: (C'mon. C'mon.)
Just listen up and you can learn to be the best that you can be
Gather nuts and scurry and dodge a car or three
If you concentrate you'll graduate, and learn to climb a tree...

But for now, we'll show you how to make every chestnut count
We'll make you sweat, you won't regret...remember, put them in your mouth!

Be a squirrel (Come along, be a rodent trainee),
Be a squirrel (And you will finally be free)
Be a squirrel! (Be at the top of your family tree),
Be a squirrel! (Be a squirrel It's your destiny!)!

  • The melody from the chorus ("Come along, be a rodent trainee" / "And you will finally be free" / "Be at the top of your family tree" / "Be a squirrel it's your destiny") is similar to the one used on the verse "We're hungry, and we wanna eat" from "We Wanna Eat".
  • The style of the song is similar to I'll Make a Man Out of You, a song from the 1998 Disney animated feature Mulan and Rocky's training montage songs.
