pip install PyLyrics

Usage

PyLyrics provides various lyrics.wikia.com methods by using many layers of Abstraction. Firstly there are 3 core classes which define most of the return values of PyLyrics:

  1. Track: Returned in Album Track searches and contains methods to get lyrics of the track
  2. Album: Returned from Artist album searches and contains methods to get tracks
  3. Artist: Returned from Artist searches and contains methods to get Albums

Some examples are shown below on usage:

Search for a Artist and list Albums

from PyLyrics import *

albums = PyLyrics.getAlbums(singer='Eminem')
for a in albums:
    print (a) #Each album printed is a Album Object

List all tracks of an Album

You need to pass a Album Object into the function. This step is required to prevent errors and to ensure result

from PyLyrics import *

albums = PyLyrics.getAlbums(singer='Eminem')
myalbum = albums[4] #Select your album based on Index

tracks = myalbum.tracks() #or PyLyrics.getTracks(myalbum)
for track in tracks:
    print (track) #Each track is a track object
    print (track.getLyrics()) #Get the lyrics

Get Lyrics of a song

There are two ways to do this. Either you can pass the name of the singer and the song name to the main function or use the bound method getLyrics() of the track object received as shown in the previous example.

from PyLyrics import *

print(PyLyrics.getLyrics('Taylor Swift','Blank Space')) #Print the lyrics directly
