The Lyrics

About the film Ferris Bueller's Day Off.
I watch it each night, I watch it each day
Stars Matt Broedrick and Jennifer Grey
Just go and rent the DVD
Plop it in on VHS
You and I, watch Ferris


I watch it all day, I watch it all night
I think I'll go and watch it here tonight
You'll catch me anytime you want
Watching Ferris Bueller's Day Off.

Ferris decides to be ill today
Says he is sick, pretends to vomit
He's skippin' school, breaks all the rules
He is highly admired

Oh, he tours Chicago
Chased by, his principal
He could always escape him almost every time

He is hated by his older sister, who's named Jeanie
She is filled with so much anger and jealousy
She can't figure out why he is so easy to deceive
She's mad, she sees
Ferris cruisin' Cam's Ferrari.

Whoa-oh, whoa-oh, whoa-ohhh
Whoa-oh, whoa-oh, whoa-ohhh

Poor Mr. Rooney's tryin' to catch this looney
Teenage kid who is out cuttin' class
He knows he's missed nine whole days of high school
Skippin' out in the past

Ferris, now, he is a liar
Almost caught by his dad in his favorite diner
Goes to a game out in Chicago's Wrigley Field
Rooney is close to seein' him catch a fly ball

Whoa-oh, whoa-oh, whoa-ohhh
Whoa-oh, whoa-oh, whoa-ohhh

Old Mr. Rooney wouldn't give up already
Oh, he figured it wasn't too late
When he decided he'd try to find him at
The gaming arcade

Went to the Pac-Man machine
Got sprayed on by a girl with Pepsi
Who he thought was Ferris Bueller all of this time
And Poor Mr. Rooney went to go wipe his face dry

Whoa-oh, whoa-oh, whoa-ohhh
Whoa-oh, whoa-oh, whoa-ohhh

Got a couple tickets, parked next to a hydrant
And his car even got towed away
Then he got attacked by the humongous dog
That was in the Bueller's house that day
He tripped in the mud,
And got covered with blood,
Then the hose faucet started to spray

Whoa-oh, whoa-oh, yeah, Ferris Rules!

Whoa-oh, whoa-oh, whoa-ohhh
Whoa-oh, whoa-oh, whoa-ohhh

He was seen by Jeanie
Then she called the police
And she kicked him right there in the head
He sure was a mess, he looked pretty distressed
And he kinda just stood there and bled
Then Poor Mr. Rooney went back to the car,
Oh, but he never would see it again!

Whoa-oh, whoa-oh...

Old Mr. Rooney had had it already
It was almost a quarter to five
He was tired, by far
And was without a car
For the rest of the night
He finally caught Ferris Bueller,
Then Jeanie came to save her poor little brother,
We always knew Ferris would find a way to get by...
Ohhh, that's all I know about Ferris and Jeanie
Can't tell you more about old Mr. Rooney
And Ferris was wavin' Old Mr. Rooney goodbye!

Whoa-oh, whoa-oh, whoa-ohhh
Whoa-oh, whoa-oh, whoa-ohhh
Whoa-oh, whoa-oh, whoa-ohhh

I watch it all day, I watch it all night
I think I'll go and watch it here tonight
You'll catch me anytime you want
Watching Ferris Bueller's Day Off.

My favorite musical performer and my favorite modern movie, and I can see you worked really hard at it. It wasn't great, a lot of non-rhymes, but I enjoyed it. One nit to pick: In the movie, Ferris was older. Jeannie was only older in the short-lived TV show with Charlie Schlatter and Jennifer Aniston. Yes, that Jennifer Aniston, with Micky's daughter Ami Dolenz in the Mia Sara role, though blonde. There could be another BJ song, sung by Mr. Rooney: I didn't see Rottweiler! He was always growling while for Ferris I'm prowling! (My all-time favorite flick? Hint: Ferris is no good at being noble, but Rooney never figured out that the hijinks of three little people don't amount to a hill of beans in this crazy world. If Ferris hadn't gone out that day, and Sloane and Cam hadn't gone with him, they would've regretted it. Maybe not today, maybe not tomorrow, but soon, and for the rest of their lives. They'll always have Chicago. Now, now. Here's lookin' at you, Sloane!)
