Phineas And Ferb – All The Convoluted Reasons We Pretend To Be Divorced lyrics

Charlene-2: When a dictator gets deposed,
And then he's thrown into the DOC...
Doofenshmirtz-2: Oy vey!
Charlene-2: His wife is thrown in right beside him
Under key and lock.
So to avoid a situation
With such limited appeal...
Doofenshmirtz-2: Me and Mrs. Doofenshmirtz,
We struck a little deal.

Charlene-2: We told everyone around us
We had split.
Doofenshmirtz-2: Yes, we were through!
So, if they came to haul me off,
They wouldn't get her, too.
Charlene-2: There's that and then there's also tax
Advantages, of course.
Doofenshmirtz-2 and Charlene-2: All the convoluted reasons
We pretend to be divorced.

We get double the amount
Of discount coupons in the mail.
We have twice the junk to offer
In our annual yard sale.
We each have our separate bathrooms,
Bedrooms, living rooms, and dens,
We see each other all the time
But through a telescopic lens.

Charlene-2: We don't agree on restaurants
Or where to holiday.
Doofenshmirtz-2: But now for those activities
We go our separate ways.
Doofenshmirtz-2 and Charlene-2: We spend so little time together,
Conversation's never forced.
All the convoluted reasons
We pretend to be divorced.

    Convoluted, my foot. They're living separate like that, and then they start singing about the reasons why corporations are secretly glad that divorce rates are increasing. which is already kinda evil in its own convoluted way. Funny how a kid's cartoon can delve into deeper aspects of society like no other kind of show.

    There's this other song Doofenshmirtz sings about how all our relationships with one another and society in general are all based upon lies, big and small: "People say that it's all right They're only trying to be polite But even though they're little and white, they're lies!..."

    It's an exaggeration to be sure, but it still makes you think about life a bit.
