[Verse 1]
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
Because I can tell what's going on

[Abridged Chorus]
It's hip to be square
It's hip to be square

[Verse 2]
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

[Chorus]
It's hip to be square
It's hip to be square
It's hip to be square
So hip to be square

[Verse 3]
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

[Chorus]
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

[Outro x4]
Here, there, and everywhere
Hip, hip, so hip to be a square
Here, there, and everywhere
Hip, hip
