This module tries to get song lyrics from It's designed to be called by Lyrics::Fetcher, but can be used directly if you'd prefer.


fetch($artist, $title)

Probably. If you find any, please let me know. If change their site much, this module may well stop working. If you find any songs which have lyrics listed on the site, but for which this module is unable to fetch lyrics, please let me know also. It seems that the HTML on the lyrics pages isn't consistent, so it's entirely possible (likely, in fact) that there are some pages which this script will not be able to parse.
