Get'cha Head in the Game
Cast of High School Musical: The Musical: The Series Lyrics


Jump to: Overall Meaning ↴  Line by Line Meaning ↴

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, take the ball to the hole
And don't be afraid shoot the outside J
Ha, just keep your head in the game
Just keep your head in the game
And don't be afraid shoot the outside J
Ha, just keep your head in the game

You gotta, get'cha get'cha head in the game
(We gotta get our, get our, get our, get our head in the game)
You gotta, get'cha get'cha head in the game
(We gotta get our, get our, get our, get our head in the game)
Come on, get'cha get'cha head in the game
(We gotta get our, get our, get our, get our head in the game)
We gotta, get'cha get'cha head in the game
(We gotta get our, get our, get our, get our head in the game)

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 note

Wait a minute, got the time or place
Wait a minute, get my head in the game
Wait a minute, get my head in the game
Wait a minute, wait a minute

Gotta, get my, get my head in the game
(You gotta, get'cha get'cha get'cha head in the game)
I gotta, get my, get my head in the game
(You gotta, get'cha get'cha get'cha head in the game)
Come on, get my, get my head in the game
(You gotta, get'cha get'cha get'cha head in the game)
I gotta, get my, get my head in the game
(You gotta, get'cha get'cha get'cha head in the game)

Why am I feeling so wrong?
My head's in the game, but my heart's in the song
She makes this feel so right

Should I go for it?
I'm gonna shake this
Yikes

I gotta, get my, get my head in the game
(You gotta, get'cha get'cha get'cha head in the game)
I gotta, get my, get my head in the game
(You gotta, get'cha get'cha get'cha head in the game)
Come on, get my, get my head in the game
(You gotta, get'cha get'cha get'cha head in the game)
I gotta, get my, get my head in the game
(You gotta, get'cha get'cha get'cha head in the game)

Overall Meaning

The song "Get'cha Head in the Game" is a motivational track with its lyrics highlighting the importance of focus and concentration in playing basketball. The song begins with the coach giving instructions on how to play the game, including "faking right and breaking left" and "taking the ball to the hole." The song stresses the need for players to keep an eye on defense and shoot the outside J or jump shot without fear. The repeated chorus, "gotta get'cha head in the game," reminds the players to stay focused and concentrate on the game.


The midpoint of the song reveals that the singer is struggling with his focus because his heart is in another place - in this case, on a girl. The singer wonders whether he should pursue her, but ultimately returns to the game, repeating the chorus that the team must keep their heads in the game. The song is a relatable anthem for athletes who sometimes struggle to balance the demands of sports with the distractions of their personal lives.
