A square person goes WITH society's norms, they are conventional, conservative, and unsophisticated. A hip person is TRENDY, they know what's cool. When you put those two ideas together, the song is ACTUALLY saying that it's cool to be conventional, to fit in and conform. Read the lyrics carefully.
