Welcome to the tentatively named Lyriki site.

Lyriki is a media-wiki based site for the sharing and searching of song lyrics. It's meant to be used for both commercial songs and perhaps songs you've written yourself. For commercial songs, you need to be sure that you've transcribed the lyrics yourself, and not simply copied them word for word out of the little booklet.

Due to the wonderful nature of the things that are 'wiki'. Lyriki is what it's users make of it for the most part. The intent is stated above, but, the wiki based system allows for lots of creativity and a style of working colloboratively on web projects that isn't very common.

Lyriki is not a p2p site or a site focused on downloading songs. You will find no copyright infected media here.
