The Lyrics

Part of my "Cut the Flowers" self-challenge. Just to be clear up front, I don't hate when songs interpolate other songs. I like Ava Max, for god's sake. But when a song like this gives you a potential title sub like that, I gotta go where the muse takes me.
Old hook, yeah, familiar line
Have you just run out of licks and had theft on the mind?
Sure, in this day and age, gotta pay for the rights
But it's still a real old hook, yeah, this shouldn't be fine
That old hook, yeah, you're stealin' the vibe
Cheap nostalgia brings us in, nothin' else here to find
How can you be this lazy? Not that hard to write
No, screw that, steal an old hook, yeah, it's totally fine

I know that old hook, yeah, it shouldn't be right

You wanna sample that old song? That's fine
Long as you don't write Puff Daddy style
Just loop a song well-known 'til the end times, yeah
But I, I have what I think is called a beef
With the way some wanna be tricky
And write their songs with half of it copied, yeah

That old hook, yeah, familiar line
Maybe tweak it just a bit, show off the singer's style
Not really a remake but that's what it feels like
Don't have to take an old hook, yeah, write your own, it's fine

Old hook
Hook
Old hook
Stealin' an old hook, yeah, that shouldn't be fine

Sure, it's a little dope, little dope, oh na-na-na-n-na
So I should let it go, let it go, oh na-na-na-n-na
There's song sins far below, far below what you have done, na-n-na
But I still vastly prefer new stuff, no lie

That old hook, yeah, familiar line
If you're gonna pull that trick, at least breathe some new life
Into what didn't make it that far the first time
Not the popular old hooks, yeah, that shouldn't be fine

Why does the title have (Blue) despite it not showing up in the lyrics? Is it just a thing David had to concede to in order to use the interpolation, all "Money for Nothing/Beverly Hillbillies*" style?
