All: We wish you a Merry Christmas
We wish you a Merry Christmas
We wish you a Merry Christmas
And a happy new year!

Phineas: We wish you the best day ever
And hope all your Christmas endeavors
Are super-fun, amazing, and clever
And that your New Year's rocks too!

Isabella: Oh, come tell me what'cha doin',
All my relatives just flew in,
From Mexico and Jerusalem,
For the holidays!

Both Christmas trees and menorahs
It can be confusing for us
When we break into a chorus
Of "olé" (¡Olé!) and "oy vey" (Oy vey!)

Major Monogram: Good missions I'll give
To Agents A through Z
Carl, get away from that punch bowl
I'm saving that for me!
Carl: Sorry, sir...

All: We wish you a Perry Christmas
We wish you a Perry Christmas
We wish you a Perry Christmas
And a (Perry chatters) new year!

Baljeet: I wish for a calculator-
Slash-Hindi-English translator
To find a common denominator
In both of my tongues!

Buford: Good wedgies I'll give,
To all of you nerds
That's how I say "Merry Christmas"
I ain't good with words!

Dr. Doofenshmirtz: I wish you would let me rule you
In evil, I'm going to school you
I won't sugarcoat or fool you
Your New Year's looks grim!

I warn you, my new -inator
Will force you to serve me later
So why not just choose to cater
To my every whim?

All: We wish your every endeavor
Makes this the best Christmas ever
And we're all so glad that we will never
Mention figgy pudding...

Dr. Doofenshmirtz: Oh, great. Well now we've mentioned it.
Major Monogram: You know, no one would have noticed if you'd have just kept your mouth shut.

Background Information

  • "We Wish You A Merry Christmas" is a popular secular sixteenth-century English carol from the West Country of England. The origin of this Christmas carol lies in the English tradition where wealthy people of the community gave Christmas treats to the carolers on Christmas Eve such as "figgy puddings" that were very much like modern day Christmas puddings. It is one of the few traditional holiday carols that makes mention of the New Year celebration. The song is often parodied.
  • The Phineas and Ferb Holiday Favorites album lists "The Cast of Phineas and Ferb" (or Cast - Phineas and Ferb) as the song's singers.
  • The third song with more singers ("A-G-L-E-T", "The Twelve Days of Christmas"), It's the second to appear in an episode.
  • This song speaks more of Isabella's family, showing she has relatives from Mexico and Jerusalem.
  • Before "A Phineas and Ferb Family Christmas", a music video using a combination of clips from the series combined with some created for the video was aired. It debuted during the opening of the Disney Store in New York City on November 9, 2010. It also aired on Disney Channel November 26 @ 8 pm during the premiere of The Suite Life on Deck episode of I'm in the Band. The music video was also seen on Disney XD UK on December 20, 2010. The "Happy Holidays from Phineas and Ferb" scene at the end was cut. The Disney XD logo was seen when the music video played.
    • The first section of Isabella's line was skipped when it played on Disney Channel.
    • When Buford sings his lines (and gives Baljeet a wedgie), he and Baljeet are in a Nativity Play; Buford playing as the angel and Baljeet playing as the shepherd (in the Gospel of Luke), who was visited by the angel after Christ was born.
  • Isabella sings the song even though she mentions that she doesn't celebrate Christmas.
  • This is the second time Isabella sings her catchphrase, the first being her song in The Dad-inator. This is also the second time she sang it in an episode, the first being "What'cha Doin'?" in "Rollercoaster: The Musical!"
  • This song has background vocals by Laura Dickinson [1] and Aaron Jacob[2].
  • This is the first of 3 songs to be in or have a section in 3/4, specifically Monogram's and Buford's sections of the song. The proceeding 3/4 songs are "Drusselstein Driving Test Waltz" and "Humiliating Stumblegimp Dance of Contrition".
  • This is the first Phineas and Ferb production to use flash animation (used for the exclusive scenes created for the music video).
