No. Wordpress itself ships with the Hello Dolly Lyrics. Download the ZIP
search the code and you'll find it.
I think the lyrics are more important here not how something is named: like
plugin or add-on or extension or something else. It's a fragment of code and for
both, the plugin and the main package a mixed work is created. that is to build
a new work out of of multiple copyrightable works: the software package.
The copyright violation applies to both: The plugin package available at  and
the wordpress pacakge at .
The GPL is terminated in both.
