Women Singers: He wants to be a real boy... (He wants to be a real boy)
He wants to be a real boy... (Real boy, yeah)
Norm: I'm a lonely orphan robot,
Just a scrap metal tower.
A misfired piston,
Run on squirrel power.
Women Singers: His galvanized insides
Can feel no joy,
He wants to be a real boy...
Norm: I wanna be a real boy!
Norm: Not a titanium toy!
Don't give my battery flattery,
What I want is more grey matter-y!
Rappers: A brain, some veins, and some arteries!
Norm: I got a squirrel on a treadmill where my heart should be!
If I was real,
Rappers: You could feel!
Norm: I could really emote!
Instead of shorting out whenever he sits on the remote!
I want a dad!
Rappers: A father!
Norm: Someone I can call pop!
Someone to take me out for malteds at the soda shop!
Someone to take me on a fishing trip or teach me how to ride a bike!
Who'll pat me on the head and ask me "how you doin', tyke?"
Women Singers and Rappers: How you doin', tyke?
Norm: Oh, I'm fine, all things considered!
Wanna be a real boy, but I don't wanna sound embittered!
But thanks for asking, seriously!

- Appropriately, given both the rap genre and the fact that this song is about a robot, this song features various examples of Auto-Tune, a pitch-correction technology that is frequently used in sung portions of hip-hop songs to give singers a unique, almost robotic-sounding tinge to their vocals.
- The female singers were Olivia Olson's voice.
- This the first song where Norm is the main singer.
- The only difference between this and the demo version is that this version doesn't have the final verse.
- Norm's movements will sometimes make a sound similar to the Skype receiving sound.
- The music starts out relaxing then turns into rap, much like the song "Spa Day" from "Spa Day".
- Many people who appeared in "S.I.M.P. (Squirrels In My Pants)" from "Comet Kermillian" also appear during the song.
- Norm's squirrel does not run on a treadmill as stated in the song but on a hamster wheel.

- Norm mentions squirrels power him. This fact was first revealed in "Phineas and Ferb-Busters!".
- One of the several costumes Norm wears during this song is that of a mime who loses his balloon, last seen on an actual mime in Paris, in "Phineas and Ferb: Summer Belongs to You!".
