Lyrics

It's so much fun not knowin' where you're goin'
Take a left or a right and just go in without really knowin'
Whether marchin', flyin', crawlin', waltzin', or rowin'
There's no surprise in life if you know where you're goin'

So walk around like a monkey with a blindfold on
(Woo! Woo hah!)
Like an Eskimo in six months of darkness who misses the dawn
So jump in the maze, it's the latest craze
Spend your days going every which way

It's so much fun not knowin' where you're goin'
(Look out!)
It's so much fun not knowin' where you're goin'
(Yeah, yeah yeah, yeah)
It's so much fun not knowin' where you're goin'
(I've got no idea what my destination is)
It's so much fun not knowin' where you're goin'
(I'm wandering around lost)
It's so much fun not knowin' where you're goin'
(hysterical laughter)
(Yeah yeah yeah yeah)
It's so much fun not knowin' where you're goin'
(I'm really enjoying it though)
(Yeah yeah yeah yeah)
It's so much fun not knowin' where you're goin'

Background information

  • In Latin America, the song is called Sin Rumbo Ir También Es Divertido, translated: "Going Aimlessly is Fun Too" and in Spain it´s called Mejor Que No Sepamos Dónde Vamos, translated "Better not to know where we're going".
  • The original demo for the song was written in Martin Olson's office after hours by Martin and Bobby Gaylor, with a few helpful edits made later by Jeff "Swampy" Marsh and Jon Colton Barry.
  • This song is made in a similar style to the song Hurdy Gurdy Man.
  • When Ferb switches the key with a bag of sand, it is similar to the famous scene from 'Raiders of the Lost Ark', where Indiana Jones switches the idol with the bag of sand.
  • When Melissa is holding a model of the maze, it shows Candace alone, and Isabella and Melissa together, even though they were all going through the maze together.
