    Is it legal to use the lyrics of pop songs on my worksheets?

    Fair use is one thing.
    A whole lyric costs.
    Don't try to use any Paul Simon, though!

    What if I don't use the whole song?

    4 lines is usually considered fair use (except Paul Simon).
    The above link from Rott Weiler clarifies the legal implications. Very useful indeed.
