Album version

"What Is This Thing?" is a song from "Blackout!", sung by Fee Waybill, when Candace was riding Phineas and Ferb's unseen invention.

Lyrics

What is this thing that keeps dragging me around?
Is it mechanical? I recognize the sound,
And I'd give anything to be back on the ground
What is this thing?
What is this thing? Yeah.

What is this thing? Is it just a state of mind?
If this is Venice, then I've gone Venetian blind
I think my sanity is starting to unwind,
What is this thing?
What is this thing? Yeah.

What is this thing?
What is this thing? Yeah.

Is it a car wash or a pair of ankle weights?
Is it an apple or commemorative plates?
There's a phrase that comes to mind,
I'm not sure that it translates:
¿Qué es esto?

What is this thing? Yeah.
What is this thing?
What is this thing? Yeah.
