Well you don’t know any dance steps that are new
And no one else could love ya like you do, do, do, do, do
You don’t like crazy music
You don’t like rocking bands
You just wanna go to a movie show
And sit there holding hands
You’re so square
Baby I don’t care
Baby, I don’t care
Yeah I don’t care
Hey I don’t care, yeah
