Album: Jimmy Neutron, Boy Genius (2001)
Play Video

Songfacts®:

  • The song, written for the movie Jimmy Neutron, Boy Genius, talks about how adults think they rule the world and how kids know they can take charge with certain things. The video shows an example: it begins with Aaron on a school field trip at a museum. The tour guide is boring the kids, and Aaron finds a door that is off limits. He goes in anyhow and finds himself in a high-tech studio where he fools around. At the end of the video, he sees the fun is about to end when the self-destruct is activated. he dives to stop it, and that's where the video cuts off. >>

  • This was written by Lucas Secon and Michael Power. Secon has an interesting past: he's from Denmark, and in 1994 had a minor rap hit under that name Lucas with "Lucas with The Lid Off." He later became a successful Pop music writer and producer, working with The Pussycat Dolls, Sugababes, Sophie Ellis-Bextor and many others.
