     Barry Manilow’s song, I’m Hip is a song that his ex employer and a very close buddy, Bette Midler got recorded for her \"Bathhouse Betty\" album in the year 1998. Dave Frishberg and Bob Dorough are the writers of this song and following are the original lyrics of the song:

    I'm Hip

    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.(Really I am, isn't it grand?)

    I read People Magazine.

    'Cuz I'm hip.

    Like, 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,\"

    'cuz I'm hip.

    Every Saturday night

    with my suit buttoned tight and my suedes on

    I'm gettin' my kicks

    diggin' 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 on top of every trend.

    Look at me go. Vo-dee-o-do.

    Sammy Davis knew my friend.(Leeza Gibbons knows my friends)

    I'm hip, but not weird.

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

    Beards were in but now they're not.

    They had they're day. Now they're passé.

    Just ask me if you're in doubt,

    'cuz I'm hip.

    Now I'm deep into Zen meditation

    and macrobiotics,

    and as soon as I can

    I intend to get into narcotics.

    '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. Skoo ba dee boo.

    One more time play \"Mack the Knife.\" (\"Brooklyn Blues\")

    Let 'er rip. I may flip, but I'm hip.

    Hope that helped. I personally like the song a lot, and I think that little video clip of Barry performing it is a hoot!
