"I Love You Mom" is a song written by Candace in the Season 1 episode "Mom's Birthday". She wrote it early in the morning when Phineas and Ferb came to invite her to participate in their plans for their mom's birthday. The boys recorded the song without Candace knowing and played it back with Candace for the big video presentation later that day.


Candace: Mom, it's your birthday
Thanks for all the care and love you give,
Not to mention the meals,
At times I get kinda nervous,
And forget to tell you how I feel

Phineas and Ferb: (Shoo-bee-doo, shoo-bee-doo)

Candace: I'm a little high strung
It's just because I'm young
Mom, I adore ya
And I'll do anything for ya...

Although my brothers make me frantic,
(Ooh, ooh, aah...)
With every single crazy antic,
(with every single little crazy antic...)
And when I'm bouncing off the walls,
You're the one who stays calm!
(You're the one who stays calm)

Because you love me for who I am,
I'll always love you, Mom!

Background Information

  • This song was originally called "Mom It's Your Birthday".[1]
  • Gretchen is the only Fireside Girl who doesn't sing backup with Isabella and the others.
  • Ashley Tisdale's voice was double-tracked so that it would sound like Candace was singing with her video image. In the album version, it cannot be heard.
  • This song is included in the Phineas and Ferb soundtrack. In the "Phineas and Ferb Musical Cliptastic Countdown", I Love You Mom was the 7th favorite song chosen by Phineas and Ferb fans.
  • Olivia Olson performed the demo version and sang it live at Dan Povenmire's 50th birthday bash. [2]


  • Isabella sings in the song but at the end when everyone claps she is seen beside her mom.
  • When Phineas says "This song" in the video, part of his neck turns orange like his shirt stripes for a single frame.
  • When the camera cuts to Phineas, Ferb and Candace during the line "Thanks for all the care and love you give, not to mention the meals", Ferb's right arm is missing.
  • When Candace sings "You're the one who stays calm" the sky is much paler than usual.
