"(You're So Square) Baby I Don't Care" is a song written in 1957 by Jerry Leiber and Mike Stoller. It has become a minor pop standard, with notable versions being performed by Elvis Presley and Buddy Holly. Elvis Presley's version was released on his Jailhouse Rock EP, and reached number fourteen on the R&B charts.[1] Buddy Holly included the song on his self-titled second album, and his version made the British singles chart in 1961.

The song's narrator addresses the object of their affection, and points out all the ways that the addressee is square, how they're out of touch with modern trends in music and romance. Then the narrator tells the subject of the song that they love them in spite of, and maybe because of this.
