If you are quoting a fair lines from the song, did this for research/educational purposes, and do not attempt to make any money off your play, it is my opinion that this would be fair use and therefore no permission would be required. It is however good practice to obtain permission and if in doubt I would strongly advise that you get the permission of the copyright owner. If you are found guilty of copyright infringement you could face legal charges, fines, or in extreme cases even imprisonment. Hopefully, I have answered your query in a way that is simple and easy to understand. If anything remains unclear, I will be more than happy to clarify it for you. In the meantime, thank you once again for using our services.
