"City of Love" is the fifth uncut song in "Phineas and Ferb: Summer Belongs to You!". It is performed by Isabella as she tries to persuade Phineas to relax with her and enjoy their stay in Paris. The number starts out with a sense of optimism, but as it becomes apparent that Isabella's efforts to share a romantic moment with Phineas are in vain, sinks into a dull and gloomy tone.
Isabella: So, Phineas, what do you think of the City of Love? Phineas: I wish it was the City of Airplane Parts... Isabella: Oh, you're just too stressed! You should take a moment to relax and enjoy it.
We could share a crêpe sucrée
At this Parisian café Phineas: Huh, that awning could be used as a sail. Or, you know, a parachute, depending on how things go. Isabella: Take a break and smell these flowers
Underneath the Eiffel Tower Phineas: I wonder if they still have pieces of that hanging around? The rivets would come in handy. Isabella: Oh, Phineas...
Won't you share a crème brûlée with me? Phineas: Hey, look at that nifty little blow torch! Isabella: How perfect could this be
In the City of Love? Couples: (In the City of Love) Isabella: In the City of Love Ferb: (In the City of Love)
Isabella: We could try some fancy cheese
Or peruse the galleries Phineas: I wonder if oil-based paint is combustible...as a rocket fuel. Isabella: Isn't this a perfect day?
How do I look in this beret? Phineas: Oh, that reminds me, we might need helmets!
Isabella: Oh, how can he not feel the same way
When we're strolling down the Champs-Élysées
In the City of Love? Lady: (In the City of Love)
Couples: In the City of Love
Isabella: I wish that he would whisper "ma chérie, je t'aime"
But all he wants to do is try to fix that plane
In the City of Love Artist: (In the City of Love) Isabella: In the City of Love (in the City of Love)
In the City of Love... (in the City of Love)
The first song in which Isabella (as voiced by Alyson Stoner) is the main singer.
A crêpe sucrée is a sweetened dessert similar to a pancake.
A crème brûlée is a dessert made of custard and caramelized sugar. The sugar is often caramelized with a small torch shortly before serving.
The only difference between the broadcast version and the soundtrack version is that Ferb nor the painter sing in the soundtrack, and were replaced by the usual chorus voices.
Champs-Élysées is a famous street in Paris. The Arc de Triomphe can be seen in the background, a famous landmark on this street.
"Ma chérie, je t'aime" translates to English as "My darling, I love you."
Nitpicker's Guide:Je t'aime properly rhymes with the letter M, not a plane.
"We could try some fancy cheese" is a reference to France being famous for its cheeses.
A Beret is a traditional hat associated with France. It is also the type of hat Isabella and the Fireside Girls (except Melissa) wear as part of their uniform.
The background colors go from bright to muted as well as hearts and broken hearts throughout the song, perhaps to reflect how Isabella is feeling as the song goes on.
A mime can be seen in two scenes releasing a red balloon into the air, possibly paying homage to the popular French short film, Le Ballon Rouge (English: The Red Balloon). Another mime is seen just before Follow the Sun is sung. It is unknown if they are the same mime.
