Lyrics[]

Chuck E.: All right, everybody! Uh!

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
'Cause 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 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 denying that

It's hip to be square
It's hip to be square
It's hip to be square
It's hip to be square

(Horn solo for 24 bars)

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 (Heh!)
It's hip to be square
It's hip to be square
So hip to be square

Tell 'em, boys! Huh!

Helen, Munch, Jasper, and Pasqually: Here, there, and everywhere
Here, here, so hip to be square
Here, there, and everywhere
Here, here, (Pasqually: Oh...) so hip to be square

Here, there, and everywhere
Here, here, so hip to be square
Here, there, and everywhere
Here, here, so hip to be square (Jasper: Yeah!)
