Lyrics on the iPod?

I have one song, Mersey Paradise by the Stone Roses, that when you hit the middle button 3 times, the lyrics pop up. Why only this one song, which is on an album like 15 years old? How do i get more lyrics on there?

If you right click a song on iTunes, there's a tab there for lyrics. I never knew you could see it on the iPod.

Interesting.

Thanks, I knew about the lyrics tab but never knew how to view them on your ipod.

A good website for lyrics is http://www.songfacts.com

Awesome, thanks. There's a comment in there that says if you add lyrics to iTunes, it should copy over to your iPod, so I'm going to try that. Also, I mave a widget on my Mac called Harmonic. It shows the lyrics onscreen while the song plays. I wonder if that is somehow connected?

For those interested, apparently this Harmonic widget is responsible for loading the lyrics onto the iPod. It's a cool little feature, but often you have to go about doing it manually, which can get time consuming. However, I do like pulling up the lyrics and seeing how wrong I've been for the past couple of decades.

Highlight the song, hold control and click. Select Get Info from menu. Lyrics should be on the far right.

dats weord. the box is empty, but it lets me type in my own lyrics. is this because i didn't pay for the song? does it only work for songs downloaded from iTunes? most of my music is from cds.

Well, I haven't figured out why some songs have lyrics automatically and some don't. Not all the songs I've D'L'd from iTunes do, but most do. If I use the harmonics widget to play songs, it auto updates the lyrics (if it can find the lyrics, otherwise you need to find the lyrics manually, and copy and paste.) I *think* you can also paste the lyrics in the lyrics tab of the Get Info box, but I'm not sure if it updates.

oooh whats a harmonics widget? i just have an iTunes lyric widget. It displays the lyrics of whatever song is playing. It sucks though. When I listen to Please, it lists the lyrics from "Baby Please Come Home"
