Google now serves up song lyrics in search results

If you're tired of having to make that extra click just to find out what Miley was talking about in her latest hit, Google has your back. The search giant recently started showing song lyrics sourced from Google Play Music in its search results, replacing the need to click through to dedicated lyric websites.

In a statement to Search Engine Land, which appears to be the first publication to stumble upon the feature, Google said it has licensed the lyrics, which are linked back to specific pages on Google Play Music. Speaking further, Google gave Search Engine Land this rather coy statement:

There's a feeling you get when you turn to a song and you know that the words have two meanings. Well it's whispered that now if you go search the tune, maybe Google will lead you to reason. Ooh, it makes you wonder…

While the lyric search appears to work for quite a few popular tracks, it also seems to leave out quite a few others. You'll have to give it a whirl to see how useful it is for you.
