Next time, install DesktopLyrics with 1-click

Learn how MacUpdate Desktop can install apps on MacUpdate with the simple click of the Install apps with MacUpdate Desktop icon. Plus, keep all your apps updated.

DesktopLyrics is an application that displays the lyrics of the song currently playing in "iTunes" right on your desktop. The lyrics for the song have to be set in iTunes; DesktopLyrics does nothing to fetch them if they aren't available on iTunes. If you don't want to type in all your lyrics manually you can use an application like "Harmonic", "GimmieSomeTune", or "Get Lyrical".

Note: As of version 2.0.0, DesktopLyrics is no longer free and costs $4.99. A 'Lite', unsupported version of the app is available here.
