Display iTunes song lyrics on your Mac desktop with GeekTool.

1. Download and install GeekTool.
2. Put this as a shell command into GeekTool (with all quotation marks, in one line):

osascript -e '''tell application "iTunes" to set currentLyrics to the lyrics of the current track'''

This should display the lyrics of the current song as long as the song has lyrics in its tag.

GeekTool user forums for more ideas and for help.

Does anyone know of an easy way to have iTunes fetch the lyrics if they aren’t already there?
