I have worked so hard on my daughters yearbook page! What I did was transpose the LeeAnn Womack song "I hope you Dance" over a picture of her growing up.  She grew up hearing these positive words and I wanted to suprise her with theis yearbook gift.  Well the yearbook committee states I cannot put this song in the yearbook because of COpyright infringement.
I would love anyone's help here!
Thank You

Just to Add.
I put By LeeAnn Womack under the Title and I wrote the lyrics exactly as written.
Why isn't this ok? Or is it?

I am not an attorney but I believe that since you are publically redistributing the song without the permission of the artist, you are committing an act of copyright infringement and the school may be liable.  This is why they are interested in the song's removal.  Please look for confirmation or correction here from an attorney.  Thanks.

Thank You
I got the idea from previous yearbook entries though that used different songs, poems etc.
Did something change this year?

No changes, but the other songs/poems used might have entered the public domain.
