Before you can view lyrics on an iPod, you have to enter the song’s lyrics into iTunes. Once you have found the lyrics to the song and added them to iTunes, you have to sync up to your desktop computer and add the new lyrics to your iPod. After you have done so, you can view the lyrics as the song plays on your iPod.
Things You'll Need
Enter the lyrics for the song into iTunes. To start this process, select a song you have in your library.
Click on “File” to bring down a menu of options. From this menu, choose “Get Info.”
Select “Lyrics.” This will pull up an empty text box where you can either type in the words to the song or you can paste the lyrics from another file.
Type the lyrics to the song in the textbox and save. The lyrics are saved as plain text, so if you have written the lyrics down elsewhere using fancy fonts or spacing, those details will be lost.
Sync your iPod with your desktop computer. Dock the iPod and transfer the song along with the lyrics file to your iPod.
Select the song that you added lyrics to in iTunes from your play list and begin playing.
Go to the “Now Playing” screen. Press and hold the center button until the lyrics are displayed.
