"Get'cha Head in the Game" is a song performed by Troy Bolton (voiced by Drew Seeley) and the Basketball team from East High School in High School Musical.

American R&B group B5 recorded a hip-hop version of the song to the film's soundtrack that includes an extra rap verse. A music video was also released. American singer and actress Bella Thorne also recorded a version of the song for the Shake It Up: I Love to Dance soundtrack album.

Later DCappella, an American acappella group owned by Disney Music Group, covered the song and released it as a single. A lyric video was also released on DisneyMusicVevo YouTube channel.

The song also appears on the Disney+ spin-off series High School Musical: The Musical: The Series and its soundtrack.

Summary

The song is about playing basketball and how the Wildcats need to focus on the game. However, Troy realizes that his heart isn't in it, conflicted for his hidden talent for singing and weather he should audition for the Winter Musical or not.

In the spin-off series High School Musical: The Musical: The Series, the song is performed by Ricky Bowen (Joshua Bassett) in the role of Troy Bolton during the end of the first act of the school production of High School Musical. Ricky's is pleased to have his parents attend the show, but is unnerved when his mother's new partner arrives during his solo, causing him to mess the performance. This version of the song also appears as part of The Medley, The Mash-Up.

Lyrics

Troy:
Coach said to fake right and break left
Watch out for the pick and keep an eye on defense
You gotta run the give and go and take the ball to the hole
And don't be afraid to shoot the outside J

Just keep ya head in the game
Just keep ya head in the game
And don't be afraid
To shoot the outside J
Just keep ya head in the game

You gotta get'cha, get'cha head in the game

Troy:
Let's make sure that we get the rebound
'Cause when we get it then the crowd will go wild
A second chance gotta grab it and go
Maybe this time we'll hit the right notes
