Zeke:
You can bet
There's nothin' but net
When I am in a zone and on a roll
But I've got a confession
My secret obsession
And it's making me lose control

Jocks:
Everybody gather round

Zeke(spoken):
Well if Troy can tell his secret than I can tell mine... I like to bake

Chad(spoken):
What?

Zeke(spoken):
I love to bake! Strudels, scones, even apple pandowdy

Jocks:
Not another sound

Zeke(spoken):
Someday I hope to make the perfect creme brule

Jocks:
No, no, no, nooooooooooo
Stick to the stuff you know
If you wanna be cool
Follow one simple rule
Don't mess with the flow, no no
Stick to the status quo

Martha Cox:
Look at me
And what do you see
Intelligence beyond compare
But inside I am stirring
Something strange is occuring
It's a secret I need to share

Brainiacs:
Open up, dig way down deep

Martha Cox(spoken):
Hip hop is my passion! I love to pop and lock and jam and break!

Braniac(spoken):
Is that even legal?

Brainiacs:
Not another peep

Martha(spoken):
It's just dancing. Sometimes I think it's cooler than homework.

Brainiacs:
No, no, no, noooooooooo
Stick to the stuff you know
It is better by far
To keep things as they are
Don't mess with the flow, no no
Stick to the status quo

Skaterdude:
Listen well
I'm ready to tell
About a need that I cannot deny
Dude, there's no explanation
For this awesome sensation
But I'm ready to let it fly

Dudes & Dudettes:
Speak your mind and you'll be heard

Skaterdude(spoken):
Alright, if Troy wants to be a singer... then I'm coming clean! I play the chello!

Dude 1(spoken):
Awesome!

Dude 2(spoken):
What is it?

Dude 1(spoken):
A saw!

Skaterdude(spoken):
No, dude, it's like a giant violin!

Dudes & Dudettes:
Not another word

Dude 2(spoken):
Do you have to wear a costume?

Skaterdude(spoken):
Coat and tie

Dudes & Dudettes:
No, no, no, nooooooooooo
Stick to the stuff you know
If you wanna be cool
Follow one simple rule
Don't mess with the flow, no no
Stick to the status quoooooooo

Jocks, Brainiacs, & Dudes:
No, no, no
Stick to the stuff you know
It is better by far
To keep things as they are
Don't mess with the flow, no no
Stick to the status quo

Sharpay:
This is not what I want
This is not what I planned
And I just gotta say
I do not understand
Someting is really

Ryan:
Something's not right

Sharpay:
Really wrong

Sharpay & Ryan:
And we gotta put things
Back where they belong
We can do it

Skaterdude:
Gotta play

Dudes & Dudettes:
Stick with what you know

Sharpay & Ryan:
We can do it

Martha Cox:
Hip hop hooray

Brainiacs:
She has got to go

Sharpay & Ryan:
We can do it

Zeke:
Creme Brule

Jocks:
Keep your voice down low

Jocks, Brainiacs & Dudes/Dudettes:
Not another peep
No, not another word
No, not another sound
No

Sharpay:
Everybody quiet

Gabriella(spoken):
Why is everybody staring at you?

Monique(spoken):
Not me, you.

Gabriella(spoken):
Because of the callbacks? I can't have people staring at me! I really can't!

Jocks, Brainiacs... :
Noooooooooooooo, no, no, no
Stick to the stuff you know
If you want to be cool
Follow one simple rule
Don't mess with the flow, oh no
Stick to the status quooooooooooooo

No, no, no
Stick to the stuff you know
It is better by far
To keep things as they are
Don't mess with the flow, no no
Stick to the status
Stick to the status
Stick to the status quo

    This song was used after the Wildcats & the rest of the East High students found out about Troy's singing. So another Wildcat (Zeke), a smarticle (as I like to call it [Martha]), and a skateboarder think it's OK to reveal their secrets. (Zeke likes to bake, Martha loves hip-hop, and the skaterdude likes to play the "saw".) The other Wildcats, brainiacs, and skaterdudes tell them to "stick to the status quo" or the regular pattern. Very entertaining song it a brilliant movie. 5 stars, two thumbs up.
