Search for Lyrics
In the Setlist Helper and Song Book app you can search for lyrics and add them to an existing song or a new song.
Adding lyrics to a new song
On the main screen click the “Search Lyrics” button pictured below.
The next screen requires you to type the Song you would like to find lyrics for. Click the “Search” button below the song name you type. The magnifying glass button will clear your search text and allow you to search again.
After you press the search button you will see the following screen. It will show you the results of the search. Setlist Helper will monitor the page while it is loading. The search results page won’t have lyrics so you will see “No lyrics found on this page” in the footer. If you don’t see the lyrics that you want you can search again with by clicking on the magnifying glass on the top right of the screen.
Click on the link of the song you would like to have lyrics for in the search results. This will navigate you to the lyrics of the song as shown below. You will see the “Loading…” text on the footer until the page finishes loading. This may take several seconds to finish. Once it is finished you will see a “Add” button. This will grab the lyrics and put them into your song book. Setlist Helper will populate the song name and artist name.
Add lyrics to an existing song
Navigate to an existing song that is in the Song Catalog or in a Setlist. You can click the button at the right of the song to navigate to the lyrics as seen below.
If you navigate to the lyrics screen but the song doesn’t contain lyrics it will provide you the option to search lyrics or edit them manually. Click the search button and it will search for the song based on the existing song name.
After you see the search results follow the steps outlined above for adding a new song.
The lyrics that you search for are the property of the owner of the lyrics. Setlist Helper won’t use these lyrics in any way other than to manage them for you. Elyircs.net is the current search engine and the credit for the search results belongs to them.
More search providers will be added in the future. If you would like to request a search provider email us at firstname.lastname@example.org
