Samuel’s Footy Tips The Perils of Repeating Game Shows

Samuel’s Musicians Of The Week

August 5th, 2007 at 05:32pm

This week the award goes to Huey Lewis and The News, and the feature song is one Clive Robertson decided to play for me a bit over a week ago.

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 going 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 working out most everyday 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
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 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 who’s 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

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

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

Here there and everywhere
Hip hip, so hip to be square
Here, there and everywhere
(So hip to be square)
Hip, hip
