Adding Lyrics To Your Songs On Your iPod

This is just an example of stuff you will want to know if you stumble upon it. I recently downloaded some new John Lennon MP3s (well, it’s old but its my first copy, so in my case, its new) then i saw that there are lyrics in it! Cool! See how an iPod virgin I am?

So, If you like to sing along with your tunes, you can display song lyrics right on the screen of a supported iPod. This includes:

  • iPod nano
  • Fifth Generation iPod

Entering lyrics

  1. In iTunes 5 or later, select a favorite song.
  2. From the File menu, choose Get Info.
  3. Click Lyrics, then enter the words to the song in the text box.
  4. Click OK when finished.
  5. Copy the song to iPod.

Viewing lyrics

If you’ve entered song lyrics, you can view them at any time in iTunes 5 or later. Just select the song, Get Info for the song, and then click Lyrics. If you want to view them on iPod, do

  1. On iPod, start playing any song to which you’ve added lyrics.
  2. Press the Center button repeatedly. The number of times depends on if you have artwork or not. Here’s the order of things when you press the Center button:

    Play status > Scrubber > Album Art > Lyrics/Description > Rating

    If you don’t have Album Art or Lyrics, then you’ll just see the Rating

    Play status > Scrubber > Rating

Lyrics should display correctly in most languages. If they do not, try removing any special characters in the Lyrics pane in iTunes, copy the song back to iPod, and try again.
