Copyright Concerns

I want to include some lyrics to a song from the sixties in my story.
What are my legal requirements? I mean, I did not write the song (it was written before I was born, really...so NO WAY did I write it), so I need to know what kind of disclaimer I need to add to the front or the back,of the story when I do like a "credits" page, showing that the lyrics are not mine. The story is a fictional detective story.
And if any published authors or anyone like that, who knows the rules of copyright, if y'all could answer, because I really don't need any armchair lawyering on this one. Thanks in advance.
