Despite having a song written about their thoughts and opinions, the Wellington school children featured in Flight of the Conchords' hit charity tune are underwhelmed with the fame they received.

Bret McKenzie and Jemaine Clement interviewed a group of 5-year-olds and 6-year-olds at Clyde Quay School in Mount Victoria about where money comes from and how to make sick children better. The responses were then used in the Conchords song for Cure Kids, Feel Inside (and Stuff Like That). 

The song rocketed to No 1 on iTunes within 90 minutes of release on Friday.

Clyde Quay School new entrants' teacher Kerry Annett says the kids thought the song was pretty funny, but had no idea about who the internationally famous duo were.

She understood the parents of one girl, who told the Conchords her parents had two children and did not want any more - ''My mum always says no, no, no, no more kids'' - had been given a bit of a hard time now the whole world knows their family plans.

Another girl reportedly told the pair exactly how to get into her house, where the spare key was hidden and where their money was kept - thankfully that was edited out of the interview footage, she says.
