Lyrics

Bom-bom-bap-bum-ba-ba-da-ba-doo
Bom-bom-bap-bum-ba-ba-da-ba-doo
Bom-bom-bap-bum-ba-ba-da-ba-doo
Bom-bom-bap-bum-ba-ba-da-ba-doo

Carmen Carter: Gravity's not so much a law
as just a mere suggestion
Bass voice: Whether or not you're gonna follow it
is up to your discretion

Carmen Carter: So if you wanna get above the trees
Get ready for some zero G's
Bass voice: And get in line 'cause you know that there's no weight
Carmen Carter: When you levitate
Bass voice: When you levitate
Carmen Carter: When you levitate
Bass voice: I said when you levitate
Carmen Carter: When you levitate
Bass voice: When you levitate
Carmen Carter: When you levitate
When you levitate

Background information

  • The session where this song was composed was recorded and presented in an article on MSN's website entitled A Day with 'Phineas and Ferb'. All five videos from the article are no longer available on the MSN website.
  • The song is performed in the style of Sly and the Family Stone, with Dan Povenmire and Swampy initially thinking of Stevie Wonder's "Superstition".
  • A discussion of the draft line "If you really want to lose that weight, c'mon and levitate", prompted Dan to comment, "Does this song make me sound fat?"
  • This song plays in the background (minus the vocals) during Take Two with Phineas and Ferb: Ty Pennington, when Phineas, Ferb, and Ty Pennington are building a birdhouse.
  • The version that plays on the album is slightly slower.
