  • Is this on-topic for this site? Windows 7 is a Microsoft product.

There's no built-in functionality to download lyrics in iTunes, but there's a slew of software designed for this purpose:



  • Actually, copy-pasting from the multitude of lyrics websites (AZLyrics, MetroLyrics, etc.) will be easier than downloading a whole another software. Aug 18, 2015 at 5:49
  • All Windows links are no longer valid/supported
