General formatting

The structure of a song must dictate a lyric’s format and structure. When transcribing lyrics, it is important to separate the lyrical sections and changes within a song with line and section breaks. All lyric lines must be single-spaced and a double space must separate each stanza.

If unsure when to input a line or section break, some common identifiers are:

A defined chorus, verse, intro, bridge, or hook

Changes in the song tempo

Changes in how the artist delivers the lyrics (from singing to rapping)

Capitalization

Capitalization in your lyrics must follow traditional grammar rules. Proper nouns must be capitalized. Additionally, all lyric lines must begin with a capital letter.

Here are examples of words that must be capitalized:

Divinity and religious intricacies (“God,” “You,” “Him,” “Your” in religious songs)

Acronyms (NASA, FBI)

Geographical location (East Coast, Southside, etc.)

Title casing

The first letter of the first word contained in parentheses

Brand names

Punctuation

There must be no periods or commas at the end of any lyric line. Exclamation points, question marks, and quotation marks must be the only end-line punctuation and must be included as needed. Within the line, it is most important to follow traditional grammar rules.

Hyphens: dropped words, spelled out words, and acronyms (L-Y-R-I-C-S)

Parentheses: background vocals must be wrapped in parentheses at the end of a line, with the first letter capitalized

Apostrophe: for certain slang and contractual modifications (‘Rari for Ferrari)

Repeated lines

The lyrics must match the audio. If a line is repeated, it must be written out.

Correct:

Until you respect me and my dogs

I’ll keep barking up the wrong tree

Spoken word

Currently, spoken word/conversational content within a song must not be transcribed.

Non-word vocal sounds

Non-word vocals must be transcribed sparingly and only if they add to the content of the song, either narratively or stylistically.

Improvised scatting is considered instrumental content and must not be transcribed.

Advertisement

Non-lyrical, or harmonious non-word vocal sounds, must be transcribed.

For example: “ooh,” “ah,” “whoa,” as well as onomatopoeia such as “burr” or “skrrt.”

Do not include computer-generated sound effects in lyrics (door slamming, car horn, phone ringing, etc.)

Clean and explicit lyrics

The term “clean” must only be used if there is an available corresponding explicit version of the track. In clean lyrics, dropped and edited content must be represented with asterisks.

If the track is explicit, all explicit language must be transcribed as it is heard in the audio:

Audio: ”I’m the motherfvcking man”

Lyrics: I’m the motherfvcking man

Partially or fully censored words must be completely starred out with asterisks:

Audio: ”I’m the mother(bleeped out) man”

Lyrics: I’m the **** man

Audio: ”I’m the (bleeped out) man”
