From Teflpedia

Lyrics are the words to a song (or other vocal music)[1]

Lyrics are typically poetic in form. The meter is set by the music, and usually features rhyme.

For example, here are the lyrics to the nursery rhyme Baa Baa Black Sheep (traditional):

Baa, baa, black sheep,
Have you any wool?
Yes, sir, yes, sir,
Three bags full;
One for the master,
And one for the dame,
And one for the little boy
Who lives down the lane.
