"New York's Best Kept Secret" is the sixth song from Sharpay's Fabulous Adventure and the fourth track on its soundtrack. The song is a ballad performed by Sharpay Evans (Ashley Tisdale).

Summary

After Sharpay (Ashley Tisdale) and Roger's (Bradley Steven Perry) plan to remove Amber Lee (Cameron Goodman) from the show A Girl's Best Friend works out, the production fears cancellation. Peyton (Austin Butler), who has been filming Sharpay since she arrived to New York, shows the producers a clip of her rehearsing the song with Boi. They decide to hire her as the show's lead and it's decided Boi and Countess will split the best friend's role.

Lyrics

Sharpay:
I've got something inside of me
Something that needs to be heard
Deep down a voice is guiding me
In an a motion that's stirred

Why have I let others lead the way
When all along I know what it is
I want to say

Whatever it is I'll do it
I'm the answer to your prayers
Whatever you want stop looking
Nobody else compares
Whatever you've seen before
I'll give you so much more
You'll be totally impressed
I'm New York's best kept secret

I thought I had a perfect plan
But I would wind up on top
One day I'm thinking "yes I can"!
Next thing you know I'm a flop

Why did I have to play this silly game?
I've got to shake up the rules
And stage my plan

Whatever it is I'll do it
I'm the answer to your prayers
Whatever you want stop looking
Nobody else compares
Whatever you've seen before
I'll give you so much more
You'll be totally impressed
I'm New York's best kept secret

What if I missed my window?
What if I blew my shot?
But what the only chance I was going to get
I already got
I'm all ready to turn the page until I'm on stage in a show!
So nobody move, I've got something to prove!
Don't you know?

Whatever it is I'll do it
I'm the answer to your prayers
Whatever you want stop looking
Nobody else compares
Whatever you've seen before
I'll give you so much more
You'll be totally impressed
I'm New York's best kept secret
Hm, hm, hm
