"A Real Boy" is a song from the episode "A Real Boy". It was performed by Heinz Doofenshmirtz's robot, Norm, to explain its dreams of being a real boy.
- Women Singers: He wants to be a real boy (He wants to be a real boy)
- He wants to be a real boy (Real boy, yeah)
- Norm: I'm a lonely orphan robot
- Just a scrap metal tower
- A misfired piston
- Run on squirrel power
- Women Singers: His galvanized insides
- Can feel no joy
- He wants to be a real boy
- Norm: I wanna be a real boy!
- Rappers: Yeah!
- Norm: Not a titanium toy
- Don't give my battery flattery
- What I want is more grey matter-y
- Rappers: A brain, some veins and some arteries!
- Norm: I got a squirrel on a treadmill where my heart should be
- If I was real, (Rappers: you could feel!) I could really emote
- Instead of shorting out whenever he sits on the remote
- I want a dad (Rappers: a father!) someone I can call pop
- Someone to take me out for malteds at the soda shop
- Someone to take me on a fishing trip or teach me how to ride a bike
- Who'll pat me on the head and ask me "how you doin', tyke?"
- Women Singers and Rappers: How you doin', tyke?
- Norm: Well, I'm fine, all things considered
- Wanna be a real boy but I don't wanna sound embittered
- But thanks for asking, seriously!
- Appropriately, given both the rap genre and the fact that this song is about a robot, this song features various examples of Auto-Tune, a pitch-correction technology that is frequently used in sung portions of hip-hop songs to give singers a unique, almost robotic-sounding tinge to their vocals.
- The female singers were Olivia Olson's voice.
- This the first song where Norm's voice is involved.
- The only difference of this and the demo version is that this version doesn't have the final verse.
- Norm's squirrel does not run on treadmill as stated in the song, but on a hamster wheel.
- The music starts relaxing then turns into a rap like the song Spa Day from "Spa Day".
- Norm mentions he is powered by squirrels. This was first revealed in "Phineas and Ferb-Busters!".
- Many people from Squirrels In My Pants from "Comet Kermillian" appear during the song .
- One of the several costumes Norm wears during this song is that of a mime who loses his balloon, last seen on an actual mime in Paris, in "Phineas and Ferb Summer Belongs to You!".
