    Plagiarize
    Music by The Notorious B.I.G.
    Lyrics by MC Grammar Punch and Big Punz

    [MC Grammar Punch]
    Hah, never was your average plagiar-
    -ist, don’t know how to cite this, never recognize this here
    quotation, without punctuation
    Words from another actin’ like my own
    No cite, didn’t rewrite, teacher says it’s not right
    Have to do more than change to synonyms
    On a whim, I did a skim, then trimmed them when
    I went to rephrase, syntax it stays
    Word count to raise, pad my essays, clichés
    Appraise? Line poaching and fluff (no no no)
    Press Control-C and such, paste too much
    Head there at three, have my paper with me,
    the U-W-C easily, skillfully
    Effectively consultin’, ain't missing nothin’
    So we’ll just cut this piece, (c’mon) keep this piece
    Citation when this sentence cease, (don’t forget) parentheses
    Tracking, asking who wrote it, you use it gotta quote it
    Forgot citations? You stole it

    Aggie, Aggie, Aggie, Can't you see?
    Sometime your words, they plagiarize me (plagiarize)
    I know you love my turns of phrase
    If you quoted me, then you’d have A's
    [repeat]



    [Big Punz]
    I really don't get how references fit (I don’t get it)
    I don't know, where they go, they're tricky, risky
    Screw it, wanna have fun
    Some words, done done done, some words done done
    I'm just so sick of this, name date p'renthesis
    Whoa! girl says don’t sweat like feverish
    Come to the Writin’ Center, it's easy
    So, friend, how you been? Please grab a pen.
    Come through, we'll talk all ‘bout what's workin' (that’s right)
    Quotations on spot, help your Cited Works then, (that’s right)
    for certain, no more freakin', no sneakin'.
    Lines we are tweakin’ ‘til all of it flows
    Here we go, read the work through slowly
    Vocabulary big like Moby, but now not phony
    “Save as” to adobe, in our chairs so cozy
    Whatcha say? Okie Dokie? (Word)

    Aggie, Aggie, Aggie, Can't you see?
    Sometime your words, they plagiarize me (plagiarize)
    I know you love my turns of phrase
    If you quoted me, then you’d have A's
    [repeat] Show less
