The Lyrics

Every teacher's mightmare: some punk student who decides to plagiarize!! eeeeeeep.. Hope you enjoy! :)
Oh, come on!
And don't even explain!
And I'll keep on giving this ever-failing grade
Well, maybe, next time, don't forget to cite!
And maybe, next time: use M.LA. guide-lines

So, cite your sources
If someone else wrote it.
Yes, this class is real tough
But don't go on pla-gia-ri-zin'!
Save your strength
Yeah, your work cited's fine
But there's no way you'll get away with it this darn time!
Go on and cite your sources;
Quote your au-thors!

Oh why, do kids al-ways cheat?
Whenever midterm rolls around,
Some student tries to screw with me
There can never be enough detentions
And I hope they'll re-instate
A jail sentence for pla-gia-ri-sm

Just cite your sources
Or try pa-ra-phra-sin'
This teacher's had enough!
Take those footnotes.. and stick "em in!
Save your strength
Won't give no A this time
If I were a nun, I'd be belting you in the be-hind
So, please, cite your sources
Cite your sour-ces

There is something that I must confess.. to you, outright
To you, outright
And that is, I myself, did once, yes..
I plagiarized!
Yes, I plagiarized

Go on and cite your sources!
Quote your au-thors!
Use a Works Ci-ted!
