Phineas and Ferb Songwriting Demo: "Ferb Latin"
October 19, 2010
Rough songwriting demo for the title song to the upcoming episode "Ferb Latin."It's about a secret language and an eccentric culture the boys create that sweeps the town. This is the song the boys sing to teach the gang their crazy new language and customs.
Performed by Dan Povenmire and Martin Olson.
Music and Lyrics by Dan Povenmire & Martin Olson. Additional Lyrics by Jim Bernstein.
Demo produced by Martin Olson
That's Dan playing guitar and singing the first verse and the middle part. Martin sings the other verses, the harmonies throughout and plays the other instruments. The three of us wrote this pretty quickly.
Recorded lo-fi in Martin's office at Disney using Garageband and no mics. This one took about one hour to write.
PS. Even though the episode won't be out till next year, I'd particularly love it if some fans out there got together and created a cover of this song on youtube, performing all three parts separately and then combining them together! -Martin

Music & Lyrics: Dan Povenmire and Martin Olson. Lyrics: Jim Bernstein
You take the first letter of every word
You move it to the end and then say '-erb'
It's like we're adding a phonetic caboose to it
Don't get confused, just get used to it.
Whenever someone sneezes
You no longer say "bless you."
Instead you play a flugelhorn
And give him your left shoe.
Whenever you meet
Someone in the street
Don't shake their hand, just stomp your feet
And your conversation won't be complete
Until you give him a big slab of meat
So those are the rules and we hope you enjoy them
We're sure to be adding a few
As new customs evolve well we hope you employ them
