Hip to be squareOkay, okay, o-k-a-y, O – K – A – Y . . .

So I’ve written a couple of pretty hard hitting posts in the past four days . . . .

So deal with it, okay?

Here’s a fun one that is also very, very, very, very true, and I have Huey Lewis and The News to thank for it. If you think I can be tough (well folks, it’s not me–I’m just telling you what the Bible has to say that you don’t hear–and probably don’t want to hear–very much from the pulpit, or avoid reading in the Bible–remember the Bible???), I can also have some fun with it.

So there . . . . . . . . . . .

And it’s “Hip To Be Square” — sing it guys (see YouTube Video below). Here are the words in case you want to sing along:

“Hip To Be Square”

Huey Lewis and The News

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

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 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
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 a square
Here, there, and everywhere
Hip, hip

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

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

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