Phineas and Ferb - Heck of a Day

"Heck of a Day" is a song played in "Road to Danville" as Perry and Doofenshmirtz walk in the desert.

Lyrics

Danny Jacob: Nowhere to go, nothing to see
Except sand and sand and sand, and you and me
Doofenshmirtz: Hey, look how big the sun is through this magnifying glass. Ow! Oww! Oh! No really, it's huge. You should see it.

Danny Jacob: Baked from the heat, we've got sun on all sides
Getting tanned and tanned, like we're a couple of hides
Doofenshmirtz: I mean, he drives a taxi for heaven's sake, he could work anywhere. But he expects her to just pack up and move to Vegas. I mean, seriously!

Danny Jacob: Two lost nomads who will never be missed
Some might interpret this as just a karmic slap on the wrist,
But I've just gotta say it's a heck of a day to be us! Oh, yeah...
Doofenshmirtz: I was sure my arm would grow back, but it never did. See? Pure titanium. It's a fact.

Danny Jacob: It's a heck of a day to not have a car
And just walk and walk and not know where you are
Doofenshmirtz: You don't communicate, you know that? Y-you don't share. I-I know nothing about your private life. You're very closed off. Closed. That's you.

Danny Jacob: We got no kind of a map
Nothing to show us the way
And it's just talk and talk and talk with nothing to say
It's a heck of a day, a heck of a day to be us!
It's a heck of a day to be us!
