Lyrics

Movie Version

Phineas: Oh yeah!

If you're lookin' for fun, baby, we're a shoo-in
But we're a little young to be doin' what we're doin', yeah

We've got heads full of dreams and sneakers full of feet
The world is our oyster and life is tastin' sweet

We're takin' off like we're in a supersonic jet
But if you think we've gone about as high as we can get, just watch
We're gonna kick it up a notch

Ferb: Kick it up a notch
Phineas: Oh, man, you know it's true (Kick it up a notch)
Ferb: Kick it up a notch
Phineas: We're gonna push on through (Kick it up a notch)
Ferb: Kick it up a notch
Phineas: We're not content to go with the flow (Kick it up a notch)
'Cause everybody knows summer rocks
But now we're ready to roll
All right, Slash, let's roll!

(Guitar solo)

Ferb: Kick it up a notch
Dr. Doofenshmirtz (2nd Dimension): Yeah, crankin' up the evil!
Ferb: Kick it up a notch
Dr. Doofenshmirtz (2nd Dimension): I'll cause political upheaval!
Ferb: Kick it up a notch
Dr. Doofenshmirtz (2nd Dimension): Yeah, I'm gonna get medieval on you!

Ferb: Kick it up a notch
Phineas: Oh, man, you know that's true (Kick it up a notch)
Ferb: Kick it up a notch
Phineas: We're gonna push on through (Kick it up a notch)
Ferb: Kick it up a notch
Phineas: Not gonna go with the flow
'Cause everybody knows summer rocks
But now we're ready to roll!

Soundtrack version

Phineas: Oh yeah!

If you're lookin' for fun, baby, we're a shoo-in
But we're a little young to be doin' what we're doin', yeah

We can do anything, we can go anywhere
We've got our pockets full of rockets and we're loaded for bear, oh yeah

Not talkin' 'bout a mundane day of the week
This ain't double dutch, kick the can, hide and seek, or hopscotch
So get yourself a platypus and a Dean guitar
'Cause if you think this summer's been great so far, just watch
We'll kick it up a notch

Ferb: Kick it up a notch
Phineas: It's just what we're gonna do
Ferb: Gonna kick it up a notch
Phineas: Take it up a level or two (Kick it up a notch)
Ferb: Kick it up a notch
Phineas: Yeah, I know where we're gonna go
'Cause everybody knows summer rocks
But now we're ready to roll

Summertime and the sky is blue
We can do anything we set our minds to

We've got heads full of dreams and sneakers full of feet
The world is our oyster and life is tastin' sweet

We're takin' off like we're in a supersonic jet
But if you think we've gone about as high as we can get, just watch
We're gonna kick it up a notch

Ferb: Kick it up a notch
Phineas: Oh, man, you know it's true (Kick it up a notch)
Ferb: Kick it up a notch
Phineas: We're gonna push on through (Kick it up a notch)
Ferb: Kick it up a notch
Phineas: We're not content to go with the flow (Kick it up a notch)
'Cause everybody knows summer rocks
But now we're ready to roll
All right, Slash, let's roll!

(Guitar solo)

Ferb: Kick it up a notch
Dr. Doofenshmirtz (2nd Dimension): Yeah, crankin' up the evil!
Ferb: Kick it up a notch
Dr. Doofenshmirtz (2nd Dimension): I'll cause political upheaval!
Ferb: Kick it up a notch
Dr. Doofenshmirtz (2nd Dimension): Yeah, I'm gonna get medieval on you!

Ferb: Kick it up a notch
Phineas: Yeah, this is our debut (Kick it up a notch)
Ferb: Kick it up a notch
Phineas: Can't wait to read the review (Kick it up a notch)
Ferb: Kick it up a notch
Phineas: Yeah, I can feel it down in my soul
'Cause everybody knows summer rocks
But now we're ready to roll

Ferb: Kick it up a notch
Phineas: It's just what we're gonna do (Kick it up a notch)
Ferb: Kick it up a notch
Phineas: Take it up a level or two (Kick it up a notch)
Ferb: Kick it up a notch
Phineas: I know where we're gonna go
'Cause everybody knows summer rocks
But now we're ready to roll

Background Information

  • This song was released as a single on July 19, 2011.
  • The music video debuted on Friday, July 22 during an airing of Disney's Pixar's Toy Story on Disney Channel.
  • Although the lyrics mention a Dean guitar, Slash's guitar of choice is a Gibson Les Paul.
  • The music video shows more of Perry's musical talent, showing him rocking out on a bass guitar. The first time that he was seen playing an instrument was when he played a guitar solo to repel aliens ("The Lizard Whisperer").
  • Phineas, Ferb and Buford are wearing their costumes as The Baljeatles, except Phineas isn't wearing his neck chain and black jacket ("The Baljeatles").
  • Baljeet's face is on the drums most likely to the fact that Buford is the drummer and likes to pound Baljeet.
  • The line "But we're a little young to be doin' what we're doin'" is a reference to the "Too young" line.
  • The song and music video appear on the end credits during the broadcast version of Phineas and Ferb The Movie: Across the 2nd Dimension but not on the DVD or the Disney Channel Asia earlier broadcasts of the movie. It remains intact on the Netflix version.
    • Disney Channel Asia later aired a special version of the movie with the song and the music video on the end credits on November 19, 2011.
  • Second Dimension Doofenshmirtz did find not just one -but two- good rhymes for "evil", in opposition to Doofenshmirtz's failed attempts to do so as he tried to finish writing his own evil jingle ("Does This Duckbill Make Me Look Fat?").
  • This is one of two songs to be more than 4 minutes long. The other is The Christmas Song (Chestnuts Roasting on an Open Fire).
  • The song was played in Disney's Phineas and Ferb: The Best LIVE Tour Ever! while everyone waited for the show to start.
  • The stage is the same as the one for The Bettys concert in "Ready for the Bettys"
  • The background projects spiral patterns, like the ones seen in Ready for the Bettys and Gimme a Grade.
  • Povenmire and Marsh consider co-writing this song with Slash the surrealist moment of their lives. [1]
  • This song is released in the music video website, Vevo (SlashVEVO) in YouTube July 26, 2011.
  • This song has chorus by Aaron Jacob [2]
