Some of their catchy lyrics. I’ma do a remix soon:

Copyright protects your creation,
all the way across the nation,
when it becomes a real big hit,

Cop E. Wright:
Once you record those tracks,
Copyright has got your back

We wrote this song together one night,

(Repeat Chorus)

I had a story in my head for a long time,
Typed it up and posted it online,

Cop E. Wright:

The studio does not get the last word…

(Repeat Chorus)

My muse is flowing from my paintbrush,
getting right down to the last touch

Cop E. Wright:
Once you finish up with that,
Copyright has got your back
