Do you remember when men wore skirts? So hip!
In kipper ties like jealous flirts, so hip!
In calico and in brocade shirts, so hip it hurts!

Do you remember when girls wore slacks? So hip!
Traffic stops, men get heart attacks, so hip!
Seems so strange that they took it like that, so hip it hurts!

He's so hip, so hip it...
She's so hip, so hip it...
They're so hip, so hip it hurts!
So hip it...

Who's the girl with the Kinski eyes? So hot!
They kind of face you could idolise, so what!
The kind of shape that gets advertised, so hip it hurts!

Once it was normal for a girl to curtsey
I'll admit even though it hurts me
She'd squeeze informal until it screams for mercy
So hip it hurts!


Afro-wigs on albino squares...
Polka-dots on alpaca flares...
Solar powered electric chairs...
So hip it hurts.
