The Lyrics

Dear people of Am I Right: I am pleased to announce to you today, that I, working closely with my ever humble most self, have formed a new word. A word, that I know will absolutely revolutionize the way the English speaking world as a whole will continue to tag plagiarism. From this day forth, "plagiaristic" can now be aptly substituted for a smelted down--more streamlined version. That's because I have taken it upon myself to re-forge the word into something for which this Earth has never seen the likes of before. I'm telling you, my word may even overtake the current standard and become the mainstay descriptor for referencing an unauthorized use of a creative work. So without any more ballyhoo, ladies and gentlemen I am proud to present to you the one the only "PLAGEROUS." (yeah!) Of course you know I'm committing plagiary when I do this, because I'm not the first Bozo to use this bogus word in my banter. Anyway, that's enough pre-ramble, let's get on with the parody already. Right Red Ant?




God is in the Details – Mies Van Der Rohe





Word switching methods or content re-written
Bright cryptomnesia(1) unlike Joseph Biden (2)
Browne/Melville(3) passages affecting a theme
There are a slew of these plagerous schemes

Term college papers and dim witted pupils
Beer bongs and bud bongs can flush out one's scruples
Essays that slide with their strong borrowings
There are a slew of these plagiarous schemes

Footnotes in footers with out double hashes
Ideas that paraphrase those of the classics
Internet webbies that'll blahg anything(4)
There are a slew of these plagiarous schemes

When they don't cite
Like "The Frost King"(6)
When a student scams
They're often resorting to plagiarous schemes
And then they wont have to "cram"

End Quotes....hmmm now way!
Foot Notes...... okay.
La dee da, la dee da,
La dee da, da,
There are a slew of these plagiarous schemes

Ellen G. White(5)
Doctor L. King(6)
Alex Haley's "roots"(6)
They likely resorted to plagiarous schemes
Let Susan Stramberg consider all things
And see if she gives a hoot

I like the parody and your new word, but I see you've spelled it 2 different ways...which is right?

Plagiarous is the correct spelling accordion to me. Sorry for the confusion. I guess I spelled it like dangerous the first time. Then I changed to plagiarous which In my mind would be the correct spelling. Thanks AFW and alvin.
