How do i copyright my songs
I am not really sure how i do it im from Ireland and i dont know who to trust. Also when i go to copyright my lyrics must i have music notes to copyright in my manuscript too.

Lance, this is an excellent question. If you are just writing lyrics and have no melodies I would consider registering them as you might any other piece of writing.
What many lyric writers do is try and find a collaborator to write music for their songs. This provides a completed song for the co-writers.
I thought your question deserved a fuller respond so I wrote a web page around copyrighting songs. Here is where to find it How to Copyright Songs
