Phineas and Ferb - All the Convoluted Reasons We Pretend to be Divorced

"All the Convoluted Reasons We Pretend to be Divorced" is song from the episode "Tales from the Resistance: Back to the 2nd Dimension" sung by Doofenshmirtz and Charlene about the advantages to pretending 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.
