    How did you try to insert the lyrics? In itunes or another program?

    Directly using the iTunes I right click the song where you like to put the lyrics. Clicked "Get Info" and there`s a tab there which says "Lyrics". I copy-paste the lyrics synced it but when i check the song on my itouch tap the screen but nothing happened. no lyrics was found.

    You have to tap once on the album cover while the song is playing in order for the lyrics to show up. The "lyrics" screen should also show other stuff like the genius button, the song scroller, and the repeat and shuffle buttons. Oh, and make sure you are holding the ipod in portrait mode when you tap.

    There's a Dashboard widget I use to get lyrics called Harmonic. It gets them when you play the song on your computer and automatically saves them into iTunes and is viewable on any iPod/iPhone. Really helpful for me at least. :)

    1) What software are you running?
    2) Is your iPod set to auto sync or manually manage music?

    - If you are on software that starts with 1.1.x, and didn't buy the old update that included Mail, Notes, Weather, Stocks and Maps, as well as the functionality to move around home screen icons and add lyrics, you have to instead buy the 2.0 software update to get lyrics functionality.
    - If your iPod is set to manually sync, you have to drag-and-drop the songs to your iPod in order for them to update to include the lyrics.

    If it's on auto-sync it should add them automatically.

    If you want to see if the lyrics are on the iPod, start playing a track that you know you added lyrics to, then tap the album art once (what you do to usually bring up the shuffle/repeat/Genius icons), the lyrics should appear underneath said controls.
