Stick To The Status Quo


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

Cast
Everybody gather ’round

Zeke
Well if Troy can tell his secret than I can tell mine
I bake

Corbin / Chad
What?!

Zeke
I love to bake!
Strudels, scones, even apple pan-dowdy

Cast
Not another sound!

Zeke
Someday, I hope to make the perfect crème brûlée!

Cast
No, no, no, no!
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!

Cast
Open up,
Dig way down deep

Martha
Hip hop is my passion!
I love to pop and lock,
And jam and break!

Boy
Is that even legal?!

Cast
Not another peep!

Martha
It’s just dancing!
Sometimes I think it’s cooler than homework!

Cast
No, no, no, 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!

Skater boy
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!

Cast
Speak your mind and you’ll be heard!

Skater boy
Alright, if Troy wants to be a singer, then I’m coming clean!
I play the cello!

Boy
Awesome!
What is it?
A saw?!

Skater boy
No, dude, it’s like a giant violin!

Cast
Not another word !

Boy
Do you have to wear a costume?

Skater boy
Coat and tie!

Cast
No, no, no, no!
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!

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!

Ashley / 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…

Lucas / Ryan
Something’s not right!

Ashley / Sharpay
Really wrong!

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

Skater boy
Gotta play

Cast
Stick with what you know!

Sharpay & Ryan
We can do it!

Martha
Hip hop hooray

Cast
She has got to go

Sharpay & Ryan
We can do it!

Zeke
Crème brûlée

Cast
Keep your voice down low
Not, another peep
No, not another word
No, not another sound
No

Ashley / Sharpay
Everybody quiet!!

Vanessa / Gabriella
Why is everybody staring at you?

Monique / Taylor
Not me, you!

Vanessa / Gabriella
Because of the callbacks?
I can’t have people staring at me! I really can’t!

Cast
No, 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, no no
Stick to the status quo!

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!
