How can I obtain permission to use lyrics for my t-shirt designs? 1 Answers as of January 13, 2015

I have a question concerning copyright/trademark law. I would like to design a t-shirt with the lyrics "You're gonna make if after all". I am fond of the theme from the Mary Tyler Moore show and understand that it was written and sung by Sonny Curtis. How can I obtain permission to use these lyrics? Is it even a possibility? Thank you for your valuable time!

I would be surprised if someone owned that phrase on t-shirts. Copyright law generally only protects more extensive sets of text.
