Today is Gonna Be a Great Day (song) is the full version of the series' theme song. It is performed by the band Bowling for Soup. Most of the things mentioned in the second verse are actually done by Phineas and Ferb in season 1.

Lyrics

There’s a hundred and four days of summer vacation,

'til school comes along just to end it,
So the annual problem for our generation,
is finding a good way to spend it
Like maybe…

Building a rocket, or fighting a mummy,
or climbing up the Eiffel tower,
Discovering something that doesn’t exist,
or giving a monkey a shower
Surfing tidal waves, creating nano-bots,
or locating Frankenstein’s brain,
Finding a Dodo bird, painting a continent,
or driving our sister insane

This could possibly be the best day ever,
(This could possibly be the best day ever) and the forecast says that tomorrow will likely be a million and six times better.
So make every minute count, jump up, jump in, and seize the day,
And let’s make sure that in every single possible way,
Today is Gonna to Be a Great Day!

Crossing the tundra or building a rollercoaster.
Skiing down a mountain of beans,
Devising a system for remembering everything,
or synchronizing submarines.
Racing chariots, taming tiger sharks, constructing a portal to mars,
Building a time machine, stretching a rubber tree, or wailing away on guitars.
(Oh, man.)
This could possibly be the best day ever,
(This could possibly be the best day ever)
and the forecast says that tomorrow will likely be a million and six times better.
So make every minute count, jump up,
Jump in and seize the day,
And let’s make sure that in every single possible way,
Today is Gonna to Be a Great Day!

Hey! Hey! Hey! Hey! Hey! Hey! Hey! Hey!

Let’s put our heads together and design a master plan.
We may miss dinner, but I know mom will understand…
We got our mission and some pliers, yogurt, gumballs, and desire.
A pocket full of rubber bands, the manual on handstands,
Unicycle, compass, and a camera that won't focus,
and canteen full of soda. Grab a beach towel here we go!
(This is Ferb-tastic)

This could possibly be the best day ever,
and the forecast says that tomorrow will likely be a million and six times better,
So make every minute count, jump up, jump in and seize the day,
And let’s make sure that in every single possible way
(Seriously, this is gonna be great)

This could possibly be the best day ever (Today's Gonna be a Great Day)
This could possibly be the best day ever (Today's Gonna be a Great Day)

Trivia

Most of the things said are used to make episode plots, either directly or by a more loosely-based exploration of the idea:

  • "Giving a monkey a shower" - "Swiss Family Phineas" (Ferb specifically says, "Yep, had to be done.")
  • "Skiing down a mountain of beans" - "S'Winter" (skiing on snow instead of beans)
  • "Devising a system..." - "Gaming the System" (they make an advanced version of Jump and Duck)
  • "Stretching a rubber tree" - "Tree to Get Ready" (the trees are transformed and stretched into tree house robots)


Some people have assumed that because a majority of the things named in the song have appeared in the episodes, that all of them would appear in an episode. Below is the list of Big Ideas from the song that have not been shown in an episode:

  • "Climbing up the Eiffel tower" - Assumed to take place during an episode called "Paris Panic", which has since been confirmed as a fake episode.
  • "Finding a dodo bird" - Not attempted yet.
  • "Devising a system for remembering everything" - Not attempted yet, although Phineas and Ferb have "devised a system" as seen above.
  • "Taming tiger sharks" - Not attempted yet. Closest has been "Backyard Aquarium", which featured whales, dolphins, an octopus and Goldie.
