I do. Cuz I like to remember the lyrics and so that I can sing it. I can spend a few hours for listening to the music and looking at the lyrics. But sure, there are songs that it's hard for me to memorize the lyrics. What about you? Let's share~

yes I do! especially if I like the song and artist. I want to have a copy of the song's lyrics or I usually download the whole song. I sometimes find a "karaoke like version" of the song online where you could listen or watch the video with a sub or caption. You could sing along with the song! Which I think is really cool.

yeah i like to look up the lyrics. I think that good lyrics can make a good song into an amazing song. Lyrics can change the way i like a song as well. im not so good on remember them though. Even if i have a good memory i dont remember them so it feel strange for me.

The lyrics are the most important part of the songs. I would like to have the lyrics available when I am singing. Some songs are hard to sing makes you sound weired if you are not singing it right. I don't want to ruin people song because I do not have the voice already. Happy lotting.

For me it always depends.Sometimes when i'm enjoying the music very much and really want to learn it ,i will try to search the lyrics and learn it by heart.But most of the time i just enjoy it, especially while i cannot fall in slept.

Sometimes I hear a song on the radio or on a tv show that I really like so I look up the lyrics because I like to sing along too !!! And sometimes there are songs that when you hear them, you cannot understand what the singer is saying, so I look up the lyrics online so I can be sure of the words. :-)

You are so right. Especially some rap songs. It is hard for me to know the meaing if the songs without looking at the lyrics. But there are some sogns that I can understand it when first listening. Thanks for sharing~~

I don't. Because I'm not frantic about singing songs. In my opinion, I like to listen to them when I feel tired and exhausted, the rhythem and pitch will make me comfortable, how come it happens that I pay attention to the lyrics when I close my eyes and devote myself into it. You must be a girl, I have lots of female friends who like to sing songs, sometimes I think it's a naturall talent for girls. But I also have exceptions when I'm asked to join parties or invited to sing songs in KTV with my friends. Anyway, I have to prepare several easy ones to get by, of course the lyrics is the key point. After all, I don't want to be the subject of scorn.

HI Chelseaalawn, I love to listen to songs and sometimes I will look at the lyrics while listening to the songs. But some songs I don't have the lyrics,so I will just listen to them. I don't listen to songs everyday,sometimes when I am bored or bad mood,then I will on radio and listen to radio. They are so many nice songs in radio and I like listen to Mandarin and English songs.

And it is hard for me to memorize some Japanese songs. I have to spend quite a long period of time to memorize the lyrics. But you know without understanding the meaning lol. Thanks for sharing~~

I guess it depends there are times when I do and there are times when I don't. I think it is nice to know what the lyrics are that way you can sing it correctly but then there are times with me that I have been singing that song the wrong way for so long that I don't want to know what the real words are because I like how I sing it. I am pretty good at memorizing lyrics and singing then with the song whether I sing then wrong or not but I am not very good at singing the song and remembering the lyrics if I don't have the music playing in the background. I can usually sing the chorus or one line of the sing without the music playing but other than that I am doomed.

Yes I do. In fact I've downloaded many lyrics of songs that I've forgotten or new ones that I wanted to learn. Some lyrics are difficult to follow just by listening to the song. cheers!

I always look at the lyrics the first few times I listen to a song. I like to analyze the lyrics of songs, so it's important for me to know the song lyrics. If a song is too easy to understand, if it's too simple, I usually don't like it. I like complicated songs that you have to think a lot about.

I do like to know th elyrics of a song too so i can sing along. My partner often comments on how I know all the words to songs - even ones from like 30 to 40 years ago! I still remember them

No, I don't really care to have the lyrics. Although there are some songs I can't always figure out the lyrics so I guess at that time it would be great to have access to the lyrics. Now when I am learning to play a song on my guitar I usually need the lyrics and the chords. For me it's the music that reaches me first. The lyrics come secondary to the music it's self.
