Rhythmbox has a lyrics plugin in Edit --> Plugins --> check Lyrics, then to display lyrics simply play a song, click View --> Lyrics.

Hi there,

I noticed the lyrics feature also there. That should be nice. My wife wants to download a lot of children sonsg and she wants to have the lyrics also, so she can sing along. If those lyrics is also available in the Rhythmbox, that would be wonderful.

How powerful is this feature; anybody have some bold number how many percentage of your song collections whose lyrics can be found automatically within Rhythembox?

Well praise Jesus! Some one with a little brains and know-how actually answered a question about a linux application without writing a dissertation or making lame uninformative suggestions that don't work or aren't even related to the issue at hand.

Well Done!

Problem fixed for my Rythmbox app.
