"What Is This Thing?" is a song from "Blackout!", sung by Fee Waybill, when Candace was riding Phineas and Ferb's unseen invention.

Lyrics

What is this thing that keeps dragging me around?
Is it mechanical? I recognize the sound,
And I'd give anything to be back on the ground
What is this thing?
What is this thing? Yeah!

What is this thing? Is it just a state of mind?
If this is Venice, then I've gone Venetian blind
I think my sanity is starting to unwind!
What is this thing?
What is this thing? Yeah!

What is this thing?
What is this thing? Yeah!

Is it a car wash or a pair of ankle weights?
Is it an anvil or commemorative plates?
There's a phrase that comes to mind,
I'm not sure that it translates:
¿Qué es esto? (What's this thing?)

What is this thing? Yeah!
What is this thing?
What is this thing? Yeah!...

Background information

  • This is the first and only song of the series performed by Fee Waybill.
  • "¿Qué es esto?" means "what is this (thing)?" in Spanish.
  • In the Latin American and Spanish versions, where the song's called "¿Qué Es Esta Cosa?", the singer says "what is this thing?" instead of the Spanish phrase "¿qué es esto?".
  • This song features a lot of "comical" things that happen to Candace such as her being stretched across great distances like a cartoon character, which also happens in "Phintastic Ferbulous Car Wash".
  • The episode's closed captions replace the lyrics "I'm not sure that it translates" with "Electromatic transfix".
