In this article, we are going to write a python script to extract lyrics from the song and bind with its GUI application. We will use lyrics-extractor to get lyrics of a song just by passing in the song name, it extracts and returns the song’s title and song lyrics from various websites. Before starting, install the lyrics-extractor module. Run this command into your terminal.

pip install lyrics-extractor


Need an API Key and Engine ID of Google Custom Search JSON API.

Engine ID 

  • Create a Custom Search Engine to get your Engine ID here.
  • We have to create our own Programmable Search Engine (Google Custom Search Engine) and add Link to fetch lyrics.
  • Programmable Search Engine is based on Google’s core search technology.
  • It is a search engine for your website and has a task to find information as the user choose.

Choose any link of one to get your search engine:


  • The custom search JSON API is able to retrieve and display search result from Programmable Search Engine.
  • To use the custom search JSON API we have to create Programmable Search Engine.
  • Visit here to get your API key.


  • Import the modules.
from lyrics_extractor import SongLyrics 
  • Pass the Google Custom Search JSON API key and Engine ID into SongLyrics().
extract_lyrics = SongLyrics(Your_API_KEY, GCS_ENGINE_ID)
  • Get the lyrics by passing the song name as a parameter to extract_lyrics.get_lyrics() method.
extract_lyrics.get_lyrics("Shape of You")

Below is the implementation.


# importing modules
from lyrics_extractor import SongLyrics
extract_lyrics = SongLyrics("AIzaSewfsdfsdfOq0oTixw","frewrewrfsac")
extract_lyrics.get_lyrics("Tujhse Naraz Nahi Zindagi Lyrics")

Note: Enter your own API key and engine id otherwise it will generate an error.

Extract lyrics Application with Tkinter: 


# import modules
from tkinter import *
from lyrics_extractor import SongLyrics
# user defined function
def get_lyrics():
    extract_lyrics = SongLyrics(
        "Aerwerwefwdssdj-nvN3Oq0oTixw", "werwerewcxzcsda")
    temp = extract_lyrics.get_lyrics(str(e.get()))
    res = temp['lyrics']
# object of tkinter
# and background set to light grey
master = Tk()
master.configure(bg='light grey')
# Variable Classes in tkinter
result = StringVar()
# Creating label for each information
# name using widget Label
Label(master, text="Enter Song name : ",
      bg="light grey").grid(row=0, sticky=W)
Label(master, text="Result :",
      bg="light grey").grid(row=3, sticky=W)
# Creating label for class variable
# name using widget Entry
Label(master, text="", textvariable=result,
      bg="light grey").grid(row=3, column=1, sticky=W)
e = Entry(master, width=50)
e.grid(row=0, column=1)
# creating a button using the widget
b = Button(master, text="Show",
           command=get_lyrics, bg="Blue")
b.grid(row=0, column=2, columnspan=2,
       rowspan=2, padx=5, pady=5,)
