Published at 02/01/2012 21:17:17


By definition, lyrics are the words that are combined to make up a complete song. In other words, we can say all the line or phrases in a song when shown in the written form are called the lyrics of that song. Before we talk about how to find all lyrics, let’s talk about the meanings of lyrics. The term lyricist or lyrist is used for the person who wrote the lyrics. This means that any type of lyrics can be divided into two types that are explicit and implicit. As far as the word meaning of lyrics is concerned, the word lyrics is derived from the Greek word ‘LYRIKOS’ which means ‘signing to lyre.’ The meaning of word 'lyrics' can simply be described as ‘song words.’ 

Step 1

Due to the Internet, the whole world has become a global village. The interests of people belonging to different areas of the world have exchanged. Music is one thing which is equally popular around all the corners of the world. The people who don’t understand the accent or even the language seem to be interested to listen to those songs. It will be very helpful for such people if they somehow manage to find all the lyrics of such songs. Through all lyrics they can understand the accent and can equally enjoy those songs. Besides this, people who are in a habit of humming the songs can get a great benefit from all lyrics.

Step 2

There are many awesome and great websites that allow anyone to enter in the name of any song or area of the lyrics for you to locate all lyrics for the song you are looking at. You can simply enter a keyword to find all lyrics if you don’t exactly remember the song. Many people are in a habit of humming along towards a song and cannot remember fondly the name of the song and the rest of all lyrics. So, during these moments you may get annoyed and may invariably instigate a song lyrics search and try to discover the content that you are currently seeking. With only a few fundamental keywords out of the song lyrics you will be redirected to links to different websites which will provide the full lyrics for the song for which you are searching. So, finding all lyrics is not a difficult task at all.


There are many websites that offer all lyrics of any songs to search. This offer can be controversial. For any website to publish the lyrics, it must have the holder’s permissions. It will be a legal problem if any website does this without the permission of the holder. Even in 2005 the all free lyrics website was said to be illegal. If any website want to distribute free all lyrics it must have to obtain the license. The first company who provided all lyrics legally was Yahoo. But still there are many websites who provide illegal lyrics.
