or
Tower of Power

So ya wanna dump out yo' trick bag.
Ease on in a hip thang,
But you ain't exactly sure what is hip.

So you started to let your hair grow.
Spent big bucks on your wardrobe.
Somehow, ya know there's much more to the trip.

What is hip
Tell me, tell me, if you think you know
What is hip
If you're really hip
The passing years will show
You're into a hip trip
Maybe hipper than hip
What is hip

You became a part of a new breed.
Been smokin only the best weed.
Hangin' out with the so called Hippie set

Been seen in all the right places.
Seen with just the right faces.
You should be satisfied, but it ain't quite right

What is Hip
Tell me tell me
You think you know
What is hip
If you really hip
The passing years will show
You on a hip trip
Maybe hipper than hip
What is hip

Hipness is
What it is
Hipness is
What it is
Hipness is
What it is
Sometimes hipness is, what it ain't

You went and found you a guru
In an effort to find you a new you,
And maybe even raise your conscious level

While you're striving to find the right road,
There's one thing you should know,
What's hip today, might become passe

What is Hip
Tell me tell me
You think you know
What is hip
If you really hip
The question is will it show
You on a hip trip
Mayber hipper than hip
What is hip

Think about it y'all

What is hip
Tell me tell me
If you think you know
What is hip
If you're really hip
The passing years will show
Tell me tell me
If you think you know
What is hip
The passing years will show

What is hip
Ahh
What is hip
Id like to know
What is hip
Is it in the style of your hair
What is hip
Is it in the clothes that you wear
What is hip
Id like to know
What is hip
Id like to know
What is hip
What is hip y'all
Hey
What is hip?
Hey

What is hip
What is hip y'all
What is hip
I wanna know
What is hip
Ahh
What is hip
I wanna know what hipness is
