  1. When placing lyrics be sure that it syncs well with the background music, for lyrics will be nonsense if it does not fit the song well.
  2. Moreover, if you record a video without the background song yet, just import the song on Windows Movie Maker and add it on the video and don’t forget to save it when you’re done.

Method 2: Apowersoft Free Online Screen Recorder + YouTube Video Editor

On the other hand, the second method to make a video with lyrics is quite similar with the first method; the only difference this time is that we will use Apowersoft Free Online Screen Recorder and YouTube Video Editor.

Now open YouTube Video Editor, upon reaching its interface your uploaded videos are shown, choose the video that you will be using for the project and drag it below where a video camera icon is located. To add the lyrics, click the a icon which represents text along with the other tab. Just set your preferred placement of your text and start to copy and paste the lyrics per sentence.

To make lyrics videos will require some time and effort especially you want your video to excel above the other. You can do this by putting up a unique background video instead of a dull single color background. Using multiple images will also do the trick, but using a video as a background is much preferable.
