iTunes and Lyrics

With the introduction of iTunes 6 you can now store lyrics in the ID tags of your songs. If you have an iPod it can then display the lyrics when you are playing the song.
Pretty cool. But I have several thousand songs!
going to google and typing “[songs name] lyrics” and pasting it into iTunes is going to take forever.

One solution is Sing that iTune!, a widget for Konfabulator.
Konfabulator is a JavaScript runtime engine for Windows and Mac OS X that lets you run little files called Widgets that can do pretty much whatever you want them to.

Sing that iTune! is a widget that finds out what song iTunes is playing, goes to the net, retrieves the lyrics, and inserts them into the MP3 or AAC file that is playing. All this is done without human intervention!

Kongabulator is owned by Yahoo and can be found at http://www.konfabulator.com/download
Sing that iTune! is found at:

There are also several other iTunes related widgets, just do a search for iTunes widgets.

So you have the lyrics, now you need the album art:
