Blossom Dearie

Blossom Dearie - I'm Hip

rate me

I'm hip

I'm no square

I'm alert

I'm awake

I'm aware

I am always on the scene

Makin' the rounds

Diggin' the sounds

I read playboy magazine

'Cause I'm hip

I dig

I'm in step

When it was hip to be hep, I was hep

I don't blow but I'm a fan

Look at me swing

Ring a ding ding

I even call my girlfriend man

I'm so hip

Every Saturday night

With my suit buttoned tight

And my suedes on

I'm gettin' my kicks

Watching arty French flicks

With my shades on

I'm too much

I'm a gas

I am anything but middle class

When I hang around the band

Poppin' my thumbs

Diggin' the drums

Squares don't seem to understand

Why I flip

They're not hip

Like I'm hip

I'm hip

I'm alive

I enjoy any joint

Where there's jive

I'm on top of every trend

Look at me go


Bobby Darin knows my friend

I'm so hip

I'm hip

But not weird

Like, you notice, I don't wear a beard

Beards were in but now they're out

They had they're day

Now they're passe

Just ask me if you're in doubt

Cause I'm hip

Now whatever the fads

And whatever the ads

Say is neatsville

I'll be keeping abreast

Out in front of the rest with elitesville

'Cuz I'm cool as a cuke

I'm a cat,

I'm a card

I'm a kook

I get so much out of life

Really, I do


One more time play Mack the Knife

Let 'er rip

I may flip

but I'm hip

I'm hip

I'm hip
