Hey ChatGPT: "Write a song about a closed memo assignment in the form of Taylor Swift's ..."

My students are getting ready to turn in their closed memo assignment for a legal writing and research course I'm teaching this semester. So I decided to ask ChatGPT to draft some alternative lyrics to some of Taylor Swift's biggest hits that describe this typical first-year law school writing assignment.


Here are a few excerpts from ChatGPT's responses:


"'Cause the memo's tough, but I won't break it off / I'm gonna shake it off, yeah, I'll write it off ..." (in the form of "Shake It Off")


"Oh, closed memo, it's a law school chase / In my mind, you're like a blank space / I'll fill you with arguments, so bold and grand / Turn you into a masterpiece, just as planned" (in the form of "Blank Space")


"I'm the anti-hero of this law school game / Battling through the darkness, seeking legal fame / With my LexisNexis and my coffee cup / I'll break through this memo, I won't give up" (in the form of "Anti-Hero")


"I'll craft my arguments, build a solid case / In this legal puzzle, I'll find my place / Every word and sentence, I'll carefully choose / In this cruel memo summer, I'll win or lose" (in the form of "Cruel Summer")


ChatGPT's full alternative lyrics are below:

Lyrics by ChatGPT (GPT-3.5)


(Verse 1)

I stay up late, in my room, all alone,

Law school life's got me on my own.

The closed memo's due, it's a heavy load,

But I'll break it down, crack this legal code.


Got my casebook open, notes all around,

Highlightin' cases, every fact I've found.

I'm analyzin' issues, in a legal haze,

But I'll shake it off, and find my own ways.


(Chorus)

'Cause the memo's tough, but I won't break it off,

I'm gonna shake it off, yeah, I'll write it off.

I've got my LexisNexis, I'm gonna be just fine,

In the world of law, I'll let my brilliance shine.


(Verse 2)

The Bluebook's got rules, citations galore,

I'm cross-referencin', footnotes and more.

The clock keeps tickin', deadlines draw near,

But I won't give in to that memo's fear.


Legal writing's a challenge, but I'm up for the test,

I'll argue my points, won't settle for less.

In this closed memo, I'll make my stand,

With every word, I'll show I understand.


(Chorus)

'Cause the memo's tough, but I won't break it off,

I'm gonna shake it off, yeah, I'll write it off.

I've got my LexisNexis, I'm gonna be just fine,

In the world of law, I'll let my brilliance shine.


(Bridge)

I'll revise and edit, make it crystal clear,

My analysis strong, with no doubt or fear.

I'll proofread my work, make it polished and neat,

In this closed memo, my victory'll be sweet.


(Verse 3)

Now I'm handin' it in, with a confident smile,

I've gone the extra mile, put in the extra mile.

In this law school journey, I've found my grace,

In this closed memo, I've claimed my place.


So the memo was tough, but I shook it off,

I wrote it off, and I showed it off.

With my LexisNexis, I did just fine,

In the world of law, my brilliance will shine.


(Chorus)

'Cause the memo was tough, but I shook it off,

I wrote it off, and I showed it off.

With my LexisNexis, I did just fine,

In the world of law, my brilliance will shine.

Gonna ace this memo, make it a smash.

Turn you into a masterpiece, just as planned.


(Verse 2)

I've got my LexisNexis and my Westlaw key,

Searching for precedents, it's all on me.

Constructing my IRAC, step by step,

In this legal battlefield, I won't misstep.


I'll argue persuasively, with every line,

Convincing the judge, it's my time to shine.

In this blank space, my words will flow,

A legal symphony, watch my memo grow.

Turned you into a masterpiece, just as planned.

Lyrics by ChatGPT (GPT-3.5)


(Verse 1)

I'm sittin' in the library, it's a late-night scene,

A closed memo assignment, got me feeling so mean.

Law school life, it's a constant fight,

Research and writing, every single night.


I've got a stack of cases, a legal mind,

Tryin' to find the answers, seek and ye shall find.

But the clock keeps tickin', and my patience wears thin,

This closed memo, it's the devil's own sin.


(Chorus)

I'm the anti-hero of this law school game,

Battling through the darkness, seeking legal fame.

With my LexisNexis and my coffee cup,

I'll break through this memo, I won't give up.


(Verse 2)

I've got Bluebook rules, citations in a row,

Analyzin' statutes, watch the arguments grow.

It's a puzzle, a mystery, a legal whodunit,

But I won't let it break me, I won't submit.


My study group's gone, it's just me and my pen,

Fightin' for justice, in this memo's den.

Taylor's on the radio, singin' my strife,

I'm the anti-hero, in this law school life.


(Chorus)

I'm the anti-hero of this law school game,

Battling through the darkness, seeking legal fame.

With my LexisNexis and my coffee cup,

I'll break through this memo, I won't give up.


(Bridge)

The deadline's looming, the pressure's intense,

But I won't let this memo break my defense.

I'll craft my argument, make it strong and bold,

This anti-hero's story, it will be told.


(Verse 3)

Now, I'm standin' in class, handin' in my work,

With my closed memo, and my shoulders perk.

I faced the challenge, I played my part,

I'm the anti-hero, with a legal heart.


The grades will come, but I won't despair,

I'll keep fightin' on, I'll always be aware,

That in law school's struggles, I'll find my way,

This anti-hero's gonna seize the day.


(Chorus)

I'm the anti-hero of this law school game,

Battling through the darkness, seeking legal fame.

With my LexisNexis and my coffee cup,

I'll break through this memo, I won't give up.


(Outro)

So here's to the closed memos, the late-night grind,

In the world of law school, we'll all shine.

As anti-heroes, we'll face each test,

With determination and heart, we'll be our best.
