Lyrics

Episode Version

Phineas: Through the eye of the needle
It's time to loosen your tongue
Got a tip how to make ends meet
Singers (and crowd): A-G-L-E-T, don't forget it!
Phineas: Gets us all up on our feet, yeah, yeah, yeah
Singers: A-G-L-E-T, (AGLET!) don't forget it (x8)

Phineas: We're tying the world together (x2)
We're gonna tie the world together (x2)
One word at a time!

Phineas: Ladies and gentlemen, my sister, Candace Flynn!

Candace: And in the end, the most important thing
Is that we never forget
The end of a shoelace is called the... the... uh...
Wait a minute! It doesn't matter! I can't believe I was almost sucked into this!
Phineas: I can't believe you still haven't learned the word. I mean, we spelled it a bunch of times in the song.

(During end credits)
Phineas: Too much information
But keep your eye on the ball
We're gonna drive it hard to the hole, yeah!
Singers: A-G-L-E-T, Don't forget it!
Phineas: Brings us closer to our sole, yeah!

Singers: A-G-L-E-T, (AGLET!) Don't forget it!
Phineas: We're gonna tie the world together!
Phineas: One word at a time!

Candace: (shouting in background) It doesn't matter!

Allusions

  • When Candace begins her solo, it is in the style of MTV Unplugged (acoustic versions of songs), then it switches back to the concert footage for the credit sequence.
  • Band Aid - Aglet-Aid is likely an allusion to the Band Aid concert that started in 1984.

Background Information

Fireside Girls with their Aglet Awareness ribbons

Vivian Garcia-Shapiro in the top-right corner.

  • Major Monogram, Carl, the Dan Povenmire lookalike, and Vivian Garcia-Shapiro, make cameos in the video.
  • While Phineas was singing "We're tyin' the world together" and "We're gonna tie the world together" he was also singing "A-G-L-E-T don't forget it".
  • Phineas uses multiple shoe puns: "It's time to loosen your tongue", a
    Cameo

    Carl's Girl Disguise at the front-left side (with Dan Povenmire lookalike)

    'tongue' also being the sneaker flap; when he says that "We're gonna drive it hard through the hole", he throws the ball into a shoelace hole on a giant sneaker; and while saying "It brings us closer to our soul", he indicates the sole of his shoe, which reads "SOLE" to point out the homophone.
  • This is also the song with most people singing in it, because the whole world sings along (or at least Holland, China, Italy, and Danville).
  • In the first "A-G-L-E-T", the line "We're gonna drive it hard through the hole" and during the final "We're gonna tie the world together", his headset microphone is absent.
  • Before the billboard flashes "A-G-L-E-T" the first time a T is shown, meaning the billboard has been playing before that.
  • The beginning sounds a lot like the beginning of Come Home Perry.
  • When Phineas says "Time to loosen your tongue" his shoelace is untied, but right after that, it is tied.
  • When Phineas first sings A-G-L-E-T, there is no shoelace on his finger.
  • This song was a bonus track on the Wal-Mart exclusive version of the Phineas and Ferb: Across the 1st and 2nd Dimensions. However, Candace's bridge is omitted. It was also included in the Spanish version's DVD version of said album.
  • While Isabella is shown as the G, semicircles appear in the background. Semicircles are a recurring theme for whenever Candace is present.
    • This is because Isabella and Candace's facial forms are both semicircles, so it makes sense that that shape would be in the background. In fact, the shapes for all the characters' faces appear in the background of their respective letter.
  • Phineas' shoelace switched from his left hand to his right hand and vice versa a lot of time in the song.
  • Phineas' headset microphone disappeared when the lights turned on after Candace's solo. It was also absent during the first "A-G-L-E-T," when he "drive(s) it hard through the hole," and the last "We're gonna tie the world together."
