Welcome to Lyricopia™

Here you will find a range of specially adapted lyrics, based on well-known and not so well-known songs from the last 75 years and before.

The power of song, and particularly singing together, is well-documented.

Lyricopia™ lyrics enable groups of one or more people to sing, either a capella or cantata, according to when and where they are and how they got there.

Over the years, researchers have built a substantial body of evidence that some types of comedy – including sophisticated satire, which is growing in popularity – perform a potent social function, from breaking taboos to holding those in power to account.
