Hip To Be Square

In the style of

Huey Lewis and the News

Lyrics

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 playin' it
real straight
and yes
i cut my hair

you might think
i'm crazy
but i don't even care
'cause i can tell
what's goin' on
it's hip to be square
it's hip to be square

i like my bands
in business suits
i watch 'em on tv
i'm workin' out
most every day
and watchin'
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 denyin' that

it's hip to be square
it's hip to be square
it's hip to be square
so 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 lotta fun
but don't you try
and 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
it's hip to be square
it's hip to be square
so hip to be square
tell 'em boys

here
there
and everywhere
hip hip
so hip to be square

here
there
and everywhere
hip hip
