Lyrics are words that make a song usually consists of verses and choruses. The author of lyrics is a lyricist. The words of a composition of music as a work are, however, generally known as “book” and their author as “booklets.” The meaning of the texts may be explicit or implicit. Some texts are abstract, almost incomprehensible, and in these cases the emphasis is on form, articulation, meter, and expression symmetry. Rappers can also create texts with a variation of rhymes or words that create and tell a story or a song.
“Lyric” comes via Latin from the Greek Lyricus of (lyrikós), the adjectival form of lyre. It first appeared in English in the mid 16th century, referring to the translations of Petrarch and his sonnets Earl of Surrey. Greek lyric poetry was defined by the way it was sung accompanied by the lyre or a harp, unlike the more elegant or more passionate official epics accompanied by the sung flute. The personal nature of most verses of the Nine Poets text has led to the current meaning of “opera”, but the meaning of the original Greek words put into music, ultimately led to its use as “words”, first attested in Stainer And Barrett 1876 dictionary of musical terms. Stainer and Barrett used the word as a singular name “singing, poetry or white verse intended to be set to music and sung.” In 1930, the current use of plural-off “the words of” began; It has been normal since 1950 still seems the singular form of “opera”; its current use, however, is to refer to a specific phrase in the lyrics of a song.
