There's A Platypus Controlling Me is a song from Phineas and Ferb. It is sung by Heinz Doofenshmirtz as he tries to explain to a group of Vanessa's friends that Perry the Platypus is controlling him, while they misinterpret his message.

The song is performed by Doofenshmirtz's voice actor and series co-creator Dan Povenmire.


[Oh, hi, Vanessa!]
[Dad, what are you doing?]

Well, I'll be honest
I don't really understand
But I fell down this hill
Now I got glue on my hands
And I got records on my fingers
Records on my fingers
I got records on my fingers and I just can't stop

(Don't stop!)
I can't stop
I got a platypus controlling me
I got a platypus controlling me

Now let me sum it up
It was a strange set of circumstances
(Strange set of circumstances!)
I fell down the hill
I got glue on my hands
Now I got records on my fingers and I just can't stop

(Don't stop! Don't stop!)
Well I would if I was able
There's a platypus controlling me
He's underneath the table
(There's a platypus controlling him!)

([h, I get it! Platypus is a metaphor for whatever's keeping you down!]
Like corporations are a platypus
The government's a platypus
Your teacher is a platypus
[My teacher is a panda!]

Society's a platypus
My parents are a platypus
The media's a platypus
It's all just propaganda
Yeah, we've all got a platypus controlling us!

(No, just me)
We've all got a platypus controlling us!
(I'd stop if I was able)
We've all got a platypus controlling us!
I'm not speaking metaphorically
The platypus controlling me is underneath the table

Wait! Oh wait, no, he's gone!
There's no platypus controlling me!
There's no platypus controlling me!
