Well, that was years ago and now Apple has added to their music app the ability to see the lyrics to a song you are listening to.
Simply select the 3 dots on the bottom right of the screen and select lyrics.
Below is a a very quick GIF of my kids favorite song now, Hall of Fame by The Script, followed by an 18 second video that I created using QuickTime Player.
Any questions, let me know. Enjoy proving you are right - or now finally figuring out what that artist is really saying.
Don't forget that you can also use Siri to listen to a song and tell you who is singing it. Click here for a post I created about it back in August.
