The Lyrics

And after his parents told him it was okay to plagiarize he later became President!
I'm hiding what I wrote
Even though it seems so profound
I spelled the words okay
And got all the verbs and nouns
I sit here feeling guilty,
But research drags me down
But hey...
My parents said don't worry
Didn't think they'd turn around and say..

That its okay to plagiarize, its okay
They said its okay to plagiarize, its okay.

I'd write a book report, an essay, what can't I do?
Cause if I don't pass history I'm gonna go to summer school, yeah.

I copied every word I read, there were no miscues,
By the way,
I'm looking for an angle, this could be my big breakthrough,
I love accolades.

Its okay to plagiarize, its okay
They said its okay to plagiarize, its okay.

Its okay to plagiarize, its okay
They said its okay to plagiarize, its okay
They said its okay to plagiarize, its okay
They said its okay to plagiarize, its okay.

I'm showing what I wrote
Because it sounds so profound.
All my lyrics are copyrighted.
