Many online resources provide large directories that contain song lyrics for thousands of popular old and modern songs. Well-known websites include Lyrics.com, Lyricsfreak.com and Metrolyrics.com.
All resources of this kind allow users to do research directly by using a search bar or select the starting letter of an artist's name, which shows the lyrics for all of that artist's songs. Metrolyrics.com features a more advanced interface that lets the user browse different categories, such as Top 100 and Featured, or display available videos of the selected songs.
Most platforms offer the possibility to set lyrics as favorites and to rate a song through a star-based rating system so that other users can immediately find the most popular.
