    I have bought an arrangement of the Vulture song from the Jungle Book film.

    If I put different words to this music, but just play it from the unaltered music that I bought (ie the singers learn the tune and counter part but just use alternative words) is this legal?

    Using different lyrics is adapting the original - so unless you have permission, technically you're breaking copyright.

    I concur with Alex on this one. The acual typeset AND the melody are copyrighted the melody comes under a different copyright law but it is still covered.
