Lyrics Hip to Be Square

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
'Cos I can tell what's going on
It's hip to be square
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 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 everyday
And those that were the furthest 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
It's hip to be square
It's hip to be square so hip to be square
Tell 'em boys
So hip to be square
