"Stick to the Status Quo" is the 5th song in High School Musical and on the movie soundtrack. This song is about everyone telling their secrets. Zeke is baking, Martha Cox loves hip-hop, and a skater dude named Ripper 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. Gabriella and Taylor then make ther way through the lunch room. Gabriella slips on a spilt milk container, and sends her nachos flying directly onto Sharpay's chest, causing Sharpay to scream.

LyricsEdit

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 Cox:
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!

Kratnoff (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

Ripper:
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

Skaters:
Speak your mind and you'll be heard

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

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

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

Skaters:
Not another word!

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

Ripper (spoken):
Coat and tie!

Skaters:
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, & Skaters:
No, 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.
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

Ripper:
Gotta play

Skaters:
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 & Skaters:
Not another peep
No, not another word
No, not another sound
No

Sharpay:
Everybody QUIET!

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, Skaters:

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, 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
