Try to be hip, I try to be with it
I’m a hometown kid with nothin’ to do
I go to the Whisky, I go to the Starwood
Try to hold my own in the Hollywood zoo.
But every day there’s something new
I can’t keep up with all the trends and fashions
Why should I care?
I’m just a Square.
Punks and hippies, all the latest fads
I watch ‘em invade the Sunset Strip
Well I was here first and I’ll leave here the last
So you’d better think twice before you call me a drip.
‘Cause things are changin’ awful fast
What’s out today is in tomorrow
Pardon me while I stand and stare
I’m a Hollywood Square.
