Thanks for this suggestion. It is indeed a useful idea, but difficult to combine with the remainder of the technology on our site. We rely on automatic transcription of the chords from youtube or other audio, but it is not yet possible to automatically transcribe lyrics. If we want to show lyrics, we should get them from some other source. Hence, I do not think we will support lyrics in the near future. However, youtube features a lot of songs with lyrics. If you chordify these you have your synchronised lyrcis on the side.

-Update-
We are actively looking into ways of incorporating lyrics to our player. More info on this soon!

-Update- 22/02/2018
Unfortunately we are still working out the legalities around displaying lyrics on our website, as lyrics are copyrighted content. We hope to eventually be able to offer lyrics to our users, but it’s unclear when this will be, sorry!

    If lyrics are difficult to be implemented at least give us the opportunity to add manually by ourselves with an editor as a blank flexible line above chords! Thank you

    If you were to "add a line space" above each chord row AND had a way to save this space which would be above all the chord changes as a .pdf, some of us...me, myself and I...could write in the original lyrics of our original songs. AND IF Chordify would print a time stamp on the .pdf, we would have a way to print a legally protected copyright version of our material.

    I certainly understand your position regarding lyrics. I am a big user of Ultimate-guitar.com which does include lyrics but i sampled your site and I really like how you display the chords and sync it with the actual music. Yes, having the lyrics available would be a great feature but I can work around that.

    really need/want lyrics with chords....

    I'll keep looking...but much less interested than I initially was.

    Hi team! Any update on this? Almost a year since last update and I think it is the one thing keeping the app from pure perfection! We need it! :)

    Hi, I just want to offer my opinion about this request.
    Chordify is difficult to search for lyrics since it's connected to youtube and that's very understandable.
    But as a Band in a Box user, I have seen another type of lyrics. They are called BAR LYRICS, they go on top of every bar and they aren't synchronised. So you could implement the ability for the users, to add the lyrics that they want on the chordified songs. Technically is easy to implement and I am sure chordify will gain even better reputation and functionality.
    Have a look here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fczaEh0ymc4 (2:38) to understand what I mean.

    if yous dont put lyrics in songs i will not be coming back next year ,you are going to loose many peeps.

    inclusion of lyrics will help us to sing the song when we take a print out of the chord chart.

    Showing lyrics would be an immense improvement. Please keep trying to work this out.

    I totally agree with this user. I am not a music reader so I have no idea where these chords go in sequence with the lyrics. Also you cannot move the bar back to catch a spot you missed. As far as i can tell you have to do the whole song from the beginning.

    I believe lyrics could be better supported for the Android app if you would kindly add a taskbar notification with the currently playing song (perhaps make such a notification optional). I use Musixmatch which displays floating lyrics based on taskbar notifications that other apps have of what's currently playing.
