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.
These lyrics from Huey Lewis' 1980s song, Hip to be Square, in a way relates to the differences between our two presidential choices, President Obama and challenger Mitt Romney.
