How can I enter lyric information for Windows Media Player (WMP) music?

A. Although WMP lets you add lyrics to your music collection, it doesn't let you automatically download lyrics off the Web. However, if you find the lyrics (e.g., on the Web) and copy them, you can past them into WMP by performing the following steps:

  1. Open WMP and select the Media Library tab.
  2. Right-click the song for which you want to add lyrics, and select Properties.
  3. Select the Lyrics tab.
  4. Paste the lyrics and click OK.

A good place to start when looking for lyrics is, which provides lyrics online.
