Adding Lyrics in iTunes

You'd think that iTunes would automatically input Lyrics (for the new releases) but they still don't do that.

What is the best way to add lyrics to songs in iTunes?

Get Lyrical or InstaLyrics

Get Lyrical is a free app...it adds the lyrics directly to iTunes songs.

InstaLyrics is paid app in MAS, it searches the web for the lyrics, then you can copy & paste it in iTunes.

Or you can just copy and paste the lyrics from websites like www.metrolyrics.com

The reason iTunes doesn't do lyrics is because the music labels don't allow it. Even the sites that offer the lyrics are targets of the RIAA - since the sites get money from ads and don't pay the RIAA a commission, the riaa considers them pirates.
