"High School Musical" as written by Robert S Robbie Nevil and Matthew Gerrard....
Lookin' forward from center stage
To graduation day
Time to get the future started
What we leave, what we take with us
No matter what
It's something we're a part of

We learned to fly
Together side by side
(Side by side)
I just hope the rest of my life
Will feel as good as my

High school musical
Who says we have to let it go?
It's the best part we've ever known
Step into the future
But hold on to
High school musical
Let's celebrate where we come from
The friends who've been there all along
Just like a high school musical

Improvisation without a script
No one's written it
And now we have the chance to
But someday, we'll be lookin' back
Memories we'll have
All the songs that we lived through

The best of times
So why leave them behind?
Why can't the rest of my life
Be like my

High school musical
Who says we have to let it go?
It's the best part we've ever known
Step into the future
But hold on to
High school musical
Let's celebrate where we come from
The friends who've been there all along
That's right

Now we finally realize
Who we are
It just took some time
We had to live and to learn
To see the truth
(Learn to see the truth)
That nothing's ever impossible
Into the future we all free-fall
But forever, we'll always have high school

Time to party
Now celebrate
'Cause the world's one big stage
Any part you want can be yours
Everybody sing, yeah
The show is never gonna close
It's what got you us here, we know
High school lives on forever more
High school musical

High school musical
Who says we have to let it go?
It's the best part we've ever known
Step into the future
But hold on to

High school musical
Let's celebrate where we come from
The friends who've been there all along
Oh yeah, I wish my life could be a...

High school musical
Who says we have to let it go?
It's the best part we've ever known
Step into the future
But hold on to
High school musical
Let's celebrate where we come from
The friends who've been there all along
Oh yeah

High school musical
Who says we have to let it go?
It's the best part we've ever known
Step into the future
But hold on to
High school musical
Let's celebrate where we come from
All together, make it matter
Memories that last forever
I want the rest of
My life to feel just like a
High school musical

    General CommentI love this song so much, 'cause not only are they acting as their characters singing about how they'll miss high school etc. but it's also the actors themselves having to leave behind the HSM franchise that launched all of their careers. HSM is something that they'll keep with them for life, just as we all keep real high school with us.

    General Commentmy high school musical was pretty much a let down
    we did godspell
    and early on, I said it was pretty god despite the religious overtones
    I was called out by my teacher
