Sometimes, all you want are the lyrics of the song, fast. In that case, your best is to search Google— type in the song’s name and add “lyrics” at the end.

If it’s a popular song, Google will likely display the lyrics of the song inside the search results, and you won’t even have to go to another website. It may be a hit or miss for some older or less popular songs.
