Counting on You lyrics

Counting on You

Chad:
There's a choice
that you have to make

Taylor:
And it's pretty plain to see

Zeke:
You're either out or in

Martha:
You either lose or win

All:
Are you gonna turn your back on history

Taylor:
on the legend that your a part of

Chad:
On the job that you were born to do?

All:
Don't let us down
You gotta come through
'Cause we're counting on
Counting on, counting on you

SPOKEN

Gabriella: What History?
Troy: What legend?
Chad: "Spider" Bill Natrine
Taylor: Harriet Tubman
Zeke: Sam "Slamma-Jamma" Netletter
Martha: Madame Curie
Jason: "Thunderclap" Hap Haddon
Kratnoff: Eleanor Roosevelt
Chad: Do you think these Wildcat legends won championships
by worrying about some brainiac chick or auditioning for musicals?
Taylor: Do you think these paragons of education
and accomplishement concerned themselves with jocks or auditions for musicals?
All: I don't think so!

SUNG

Jocks:
Check out the champions
Who came before
Hail the hero that you could be

Brainiacs:
And put away that dream,
'Cause there's no "I" in "TEAM"

ALL:
And the sacrifice is worth it
we all agree

Jocks:
You just have to keep your focus

Brainiacs:
Forget about "you-know-who"

All:
Don't let us down
You gotta come through
'Cause we're counting on
Counting on, counting on you

Spoken:

Troy: That's my dad!
Gabriella: That's Troy!
Chad: Heartbreak Bolton. Missed the last basket of the 1981 Championships.
Do it for him, Troy. Give him the championship he always dreamed of.
Taylor: Heartbreak Bolton. Another lost-cause, bonehead jock.
But you...you're the future of civilization.

Sung:

Jocks:
You're next in line
You're part of the chain
and now that we can make it
Don't break it!

Martha:
You're the heir apparent

Taylor:
That's what everyone says

Brainiacs:
From Frida Kahlo, Indira Gandhi
Rosa Parks, Amelia Earheart
To Gabriella Montez
(Gabriella Montez)
(Gabriella Montez)

(overlapping)

Jocks:
Bolton! Bolton! Bolton! Bolton! Bolton!

All:
Now the pressure is way up high
Which way are you gonna go?
You gonna sing a song
Or are you gonna be strong
Trade your fantasies in
for the thing you know
The destiny you've been handed
The only thing that you can do?

Don't let us down
You gotta come through
'Cause we're counting on
Counting on, counting on you

Yeah we're counting on you
We're counting on you
So don't let us down
You gotta come through

We're counting on,
counting on,counting on,counting on...
