This is a song article.


Chop Away at My Heart is a hit song by The Lumberzacks, originally performed in the Milo Murphy's Law episode "Secrets and Pies". In The Phineas and Ferb Effect, it is revealed that Baljeet is also a big fan of the band, so he, Zack, Buford, Melissa and Sara decide to distract the Pistachion guards. At first, Zack sings lead, but Baljeet surreptitiously takes over.

It is also briefly heard in Phineas and Ferb The Movie: Candace Against the Universe when the spaceship's computer mishears Candace's command to "stop, stop, stop, stop" to play the song.

Lyrics

Zack: I know you're pining
But every cloud has got a silver lining
Zack and Baljeet: The leaves are parting now the sun is shining
And you're in my arms...
Baljeet: ...so the planets are aligning
My heart is strong, like a tree! Boom!
And you belong, baby, you belong to me
Without you, I'm tied to the ground
And if I fall, do I even make a sound?

Baljeet and the others: Chop chop chop! Chop away at my heart!
I can feel it falling (timber!) and I will never part
I know you, you've been there from the start
So baby chop chop chop! Chop away at my heart!
Na na na na, na na na na na na na...

Single

I know you're pining
But every cloud has got a silver lining
The leaves are parting now the sun is shining
And you're in my arms so the planets are aligning
My heart is strong, like a tree!
And you belong, baby you belong to me
Without you, I'm tied to the ground
And if I fall, do I even make a sound?

Chop chop chop! Chop away at my heart!
I can feel it falling (timber!) and I will never part
I know you, you've been there from the start
So baby chop chop chop! Chop away at my heart!

And now you're grinning
When you look me in the eye, my head's spinning
If love is just a game, I think we’re winning
And we’re here right now so this feels like a beginning
I know you’re ready, you know I’m right
When I tell you my bark is always worse than my bite
When you look at me, do you see me?
Or do you only see a forest for the tree?

Chop chop chop! Chop away at my heart!
I can feel it falling (timber!) and I will never part
I know you, you've been there from the start
So baby chop chop chop! Chop away at my heart!

Na na na na, na na na na na na na (x4)

Chop chop chop! Chop away at my heart!
I can feel it falling and I will never part
I know you, you've been there from the start
So baby chop chop chop! Chop away at my heart!

Chop chop chop! Chop away at my heart!
I can feel it falling (timber!) and I will never part
I know you, you've been there from the start
So baby chop chop chop! Chop away at my heart!
