Lyrics

Chad:
How did we get from the top of the world
To the bottom of the heap?

Taylor:
I don't recall you mentioning,
The boss is such a creep!

Zeke:
We still have the ingredients
To make this summer sweet

Martha:
Well, I got rags instead of riches

Jason:
And all these dirty dishes

Everyone:
Just wish I had 3 wishes

Gabriella:
Okay guys, break it up.

Troy:
We've got to work . . . work . . . to work this out
We'll make things right
The sun will shine
If we work . . . work . . . there'll be no doubt
We can still save the summer . . . if we work this out

Chad:
Dude, what have you gotten us into?

Troy:
Come on, we can totally turn this thing around!

Chad:
I'd rather face a seven-footer straight up in the post

Taylor:
That sure beats hangin' here
And burnin' someones toast

Jason:
I needed Benjamins
But this ain't worth the stress

Kelsi:
Maybe theirs a better way
To fix this greasy mess

Troy:
We're a champion team
A well-oiled machine
And we've faced tougher problems than this
I know it's a grind
But I'm sure we can find
A way to have fun while we get this job done

Troy and Gabriella:
We've got to work . . . work . . . to work this out
We'll make things right
The sun will shine
If we work...work... there'll be no doubt

Zeke, Kelsi, Troy and Gabriella:
If we all come together
We can work this out!

Troy:
Let's work it!

BREAKDOWN

Troy:
Tell me what you want

Gabriella:
Tell me what you need

Zeke:
A little bit of sugar

Martha:
A little of butter

Kelsi:
It's the perfect recipe

Everyone:
PAYDAY!

Jason:
It'll taste so sweet

Everyone:
PAYDAY!

Zeke:
Good enough to eat!

Jason:
Gonna make some motion pictures

Martha:
Hit the mall with all my sisters

Zeke:
Get tickets to the Knicks and Sixers

Kelsi:
Kick it with the music mixers

Chad:
Buy a ride that suits my style

Taylor:
Lounge around the pool awhile

Troy:
Make a date with my favorite girl

Troy and Gabriella:
We've got it made

Full cast:
We've got to work . . . work . . . to work this out
We'll make things right
The sun will shine
If we work . . . work . . . there'll be no doubt

We can still save the summer . . . if we work this out
Work this
Gotta work this
We can work this out
