Lyrics

Episode/Album versions

Notes: Lines in italic are not included in the Album version.

Phineas: Well we hope you all enjoyed the show
Hope it was not anticlimactic
Now there's something we want you to know
And we don't want to sound didactic

Phineas and entire cast: But if there's one thing we can say
I know it sounds a bit cliché
There's no such thing
As just an ordinary day

And you don't have to build a roller coaster
Just find your own way to make the most of
These days of summer
And dance to the beat of a different drummer
Just grab those opportunities when you see 'em
'Cause every day's a brand new day, you gotta Carpe Diem

Fireside Girls: Ooh-ooh-ooh-ooh....

(Kenny Ortega interruption)

Entire cast: And you don't have to build a roller coaster
Just find your own way to make the most of
Every minute
No more waiting for the right time, you're in it
Just grab those opportunities when you see 'em
'Cause every day's a brand new day, baby, Carpe Diem
Martians: Ooh-ooh-ooh-ooh....
Santa, Blay'n, Clewn't, Agents: Ooh
Love Händel: Every day's a brand new day, baby, carpe diem
Ba-dink-a-dinks: Ooh-ooh-ooh-ooh....
Professor Destructicon, The Regurgitator and entire cast: Every day's a brand new day
Haney and entire cast: Baby, Carpe Diem
Agents: Ooh-ooh-ooh-ooh....
All but Ferb: Every day's a brand new day
Carpe Diem

(Perry chatters)

Demo version

Well we hope you all enjoyed the show
Hope it was not anti-climatic
And there's something we want you to know
And we don't want to sound didactic

But there's one thing left to say
I guess it sounds a bit cliché
There's no such thing
As just an ordinary day

And you don't have to build a roller coaster
To find your own way to make the most of
These days of summer
Get down and dance to a different drummer
Gotta grab those opportunities when you see 'em
Every day's a brand new day, baby, Carpe Diem

And you don't have to build a roller coaster
To find your own way to make the most of
Every minute
No more waiting for the right time, you're in it
Just grab those opportunities when you see 'em
Every day's a brand new day, baby, Carpe diem
Yeah yeah (X2)
Every day's a brand new day, baby, carpe diem
Yeah yeah
Every day's a brand new day
Carpe Diem

Background Information

  • A demo was posted on SoundCloud.
  • Phineas and Ferb and other characters (besides Dr. Doofenshmirtz) are dancing next to Perry the Platypus as Agent P for about 58 seconds in the song. However, none of the characters notice that Perry is a secret agent. Although this was sung to the audience, so they may not have cared.
  • The sign in the background that says "ROLLERCOASTER THE MUSICAL" is the same format as the "HIGH SCHOOL MUSICAL" sign that is seen at the end of High School Musical 3 movie during the end of the song "High School Musical". Also, Candace is standing in the same place that her voice actress, Ashley Tisdale stands at the end of High School Musical 3. In addition, Kenny Ortega was also the choreographer for High School Musical.
  • Some dancers from "Phineas and Ferb Summer Belongs to You!" appear briefly in the song.
  • In the Japanese version, there is an extra syllable in the title because of the hiragana/katakana Japanese alphabets. This version is called/written as Kāpe Diemu in Japanese rōmaji, and written as カーペディエム (pronounced the same) in katakana.
  • This song was included in the Phineas and Ferb: Across the 1st and 2nd Dimensions soundtrack.
  • The line "I know it sounds a bit cliché" may be a reference to earlier in the episode in the song "Hey Ferb", when Phineas sings a very similar line: "Though it might sound just a bit cliché".
  • For a brief moment, Phineas and Ferb are shown in front of the background from "Izzy's Got the Frizzies".
  • Second episode ended in a song with lots of people in the backyard. ("Phineas and Ferb Summer Belongs to You!")
  • When Sherman was playing the drums with his band, he had gray hair, possibly because the band just worn their old clothes and the same hairstyle.
  • The dancers from Baliwood use the same background as that song.
  • Second song that refers to a rollercoaster. ("Rollercoaster")
  • Coincidentally, Kenny Ortega directed a film in 1992 called Newsies which had a song called "Seize the Day".
  • Norm did not appear in the song. 

Errors

  • Isabella's voice can be heard singing the line "There's no such thing as just an ordinary day"; however, when she comes in later on, her mouth is closed.
  • When Phineas says "didactic," the space between his legs is white.
  • When the Fireside Girls appear to sing their part, they don't move their lips until the second "ooh".
  • At the end of the song, four floating mouths are seen. This error was not present in the episode itself.
  • After Kenny Ortega interrupts, Perry's hands are white instead of blueberry
  • When Phineas says "we" (in "Now there's something we want you to know and we don't want to sound didactic.") Phineas's legs are invisible.
  • When the background changes the ladies from " Hey Ferb" and "Back in Gimmelshtump" hands are facing the wrong way.
