Lyrics are the written words in a song. Lyrics are usually written during composition of a song or after the accompanying music is composed. Sometimes, however, music is adapted to or written for a song or poem that has already been written.
I would be the Lyric
Ever on the lip,
Rather than the Epic
Memory lets slip.
×Thomas Bailey AldrichChinese lyrics (詞) are Chinese poems written in the set metrical and tonal pattern of a particular song.
