High School Musical - Stick To The Status Quo

"Stick to the Status Quo" is the fifth song in High School Musical and on the movie soundtrack. This song is about everyone telling their secrets. Zeke Baylor is baking, Martha Cox loves hip-hop, and a skater dude plays the cello. Throughout the song, each group tells how the rebel should "stick to the status quo". Sharpay chimes in too, saying "this is not what she planned". Ryan then sings with her, stating that he could not agree more.

Lyrics

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 own 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 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 crème brûlée.

Jocks:
No, no, no, nooooooooooo
No, no, no
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:
Look at me
And what do you see?
Intelligence beyond compare
But inside I am stirring
Something strange is occurring
It's a secret I need to share

Brainiacs:
Open up, dig way down deep

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

Brainiac (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
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

Skater Dude:
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

Skater Dude (spoken):
Alright, if Troy wants to be a singer then I'm coming clean! I play the cello!

Dude 1 (spoken):
Awesome!
What is it?
A saw!

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

Dudes & Dudettes:
Not another word

Dude 1 (spoken):
Do you have to wear a costume?

Skater Dude (spoken):
Coat and tie!

Dudes & Dudettes:
No, no, no, nooooooooooo
No, no, no
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/Dudettes:
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

[Instrumental break]

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

Ryan:
Something's not right

Sharpay:
Really wrong

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

Skater Dude:
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:
Crème Brûlée

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!

[Silence]

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

Taylor (spoken):
Not me, you.

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

Jocks, Brainiacs & Dudes/Dudettes:
Noooooooooooooo, no, no, no
Sick 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
