Written by Bill Gibson, Sean Hopper, Huey Lewis...
I used to be a renegade, I used to fool around,
But I couldn't take the punishment and had to settle down,
Now I'm playing it real straight, and yes, I cut my hair,
You might think I'm crazy, but I don't even care,
I can tell what's going on

It's hip to be square

I like my bands in business suits, I watch them on TV,
I'm working out most every day and watching what I eat,
They tell me that it's good for me, but I don't even care,
I know that it's crazy, I know that it's nowhere,
But there is no denying that

It's hip to be square

It's not too hard to figure out, you see it every day,
And those that were the farthest out have gone the other way,
You see them on the freeway, it don't look like a lot of fun,
But don't you try to fight it, an idea whose time has come,
Don't tell me that I'm crazy, don't tell me I'm nowhere,
Take it from me

It's hip to be square

Here, there, and everywhere,
Hip, hip, so hip to be a square
