Introduction

In general song lyrics finder to used to find song lyrics that are tough to remember and recognize so it will be very helpful for karaoke and sing-along. In this blog, we are going to see how to create a song lyrics finder using python

Requirements

pip install python-docx
pip install beautifulsoup4
pip install requests

Python-Docx is used to create a word document. Beautifulsoup4 is used to read and extract from webpages. Requests are used to make user request in the browser.

How to get lyrics from a website?

import requests
from bs4 import BeautifulSoup

songname="2002"
html_file=requests.get("https://search.azlyrics.com/search.php?q="+songname).text
soup=BeautifulSoup(html_file,"lxml")
match=[x.extract() for x in soup.findAll('td',class_='text-left visitedlyr')]
link=str(list(match[0])[1]).split('"')

html_files=requests.get(link[1]).text
soup=BeautifulSoup(html_files,"lxml")
match=[x.extract() for x in soup.findAll('div',class_='col-xs-12 col-lg-8 text-center')]

lyrics=str(match).split("\n")
start=lyrics.index('<!-- Usage of azlyrics.com content by any third-party lyrics provider is prohibited by our licensing agreement. Sorry about that. -->\r')
end=lyrics.index('<!-- MxM banner -->')
print(lyrics[start+1:end-2])

for i in lyrics[start+1:end-2]:
    f=i.replace("<br/>","")
    print(f)
songname="2002"
html_file=requests.get("https://search.azlyrics.com/search.php?q="+songname).text
soup=BeautifulSoup(html_file,"lxml")

Then in soup it will have the entire website code we have to extract element of class 'text-left visitedlyr'

match=[x.extract() for x in soup.findAll('td',class_='text-left visitedlyr')]
link=str(list(match[0])[1]).split('"')

then further extraction will give the song lyrics link:- azlyrics.com/lyrics/annemarie/2002.html

Extracting song lyrics

By using the song lyrics link we have to again make a request

html_files=requests.get(link[1]).text
soup=BeautifulSoup(html_files,"lxml")

Then we have to extract

element of class 'col-xs-12 col-lg-8 text-center'

match=[x.extract() for x in soup.findAll('div',class_='col-xs-12 col-lg-8 text-center')]
lyrics=str(match).split("\n")
start=lyrics.index('<!-- Usage of azlyrics.com content by any third-party lyrics provider is prohibited by our licensing agreement. Sorry about that. -->\r')
end=lyrics.index('<!-- MxM banner -->')

lyrics=lyrics[start+1:end-2]

Then Further extraction will give the desired song lyrics: -

I will always remember The day you kissed my lips Light as a feather And it went just like this No, it's never been better Than the summer of two thousand and two

We were only eleven But acting like grown-ups Like we are in the present Drinking from plastic cups Singing "love is forever and ever" Well, I guess that was true

Combining with GUI

from tkinter import *
from tkinter import messagebox
from docx import Document
import requests
from bs4 import BeautifulSoup
import random



root=Tk()
root.title("Lyrics Finder")
myscroll=Scrollbar(root,orient=VERTICAL)


lables2=[]
numline=0


def new_lyrics():
    global numline
    global lables
    global frame1
    global removebtn
    global count2
    global lables2
    global songbox
    global e1
    rem()
    songname=e1.get().replace(" ","+")
    fgh=[]
    html_file=requests.get("https://search.azlyrics.com/search.php?q="+songname).text
    soup=BeautifulSoup(html_file,"lxml")
    match=[x.extract() for x in soup.findAll('td',class_='text-left visitedlyr')]

    if match==[]:
        messagebox.showinfo("Lyric Finder","song not found ")
        return 
    link=str(list(match[0])[1]).split('"')
    html_files=requests.get(link[1]).text
    soup=BeautifulSoup(html_files,"lxml")
    match=[x.extract() for x in soup.findAll('div',class_='col-xs-12 col-lg-8 text-center')]
    lyrics=str(match).split("\n")
    start=lyrics.index('<!-- Usage of azlyrics.com content by any third-party lyrics provider is prohibited by our licensing agreement. Sorry about that. -->\r')
    end=lyrics.index('<!-- MxM banner -->')

    for i in lyrics[start+1:end-2]:
        f=i.replace("<br/>","")
        songbox.insert(END,"          "+f)


    lables2=lyrics[start+1:end-2]
    numline=len(lables2)

    removebtn.grid(row=0,column=3,padx=2)
    save.grid(row=0,column=4,padx=2)


def sa():
    global lables2
    global numline
    global lynum
    global e1
    lynum=random.randint(0, 100)
    na=e1.get()
    name=na+"("+str(lynum)+").docx"
    doc =Document()
    doc.add_heading(na)

    with open(name,"a") as f:
        for i in range(numline):
            try:
                encoded=lables2[i].encode('utf-8')
                doc.add_paragraph(lables2[i].replace("<br/>",""))
            except:
                pass
    doc.save(name)
    messagebox.showinfo("lyric finder","song lyrics saved as "+name)


def rem():
    global numline
    global lables
    global removebtn
    global lables2
    global songbox
    global e1
    lables2=[]
    songbox.delete(0,numline-1)

    removebtn.grid_forget()
    save.grid_forget()



frame1=Frame(root)
labe=Label(frame1,text="Enter the song name:")
labe.grid(row=0,column=0)
e1=Entry(frame1,width=30)
e1.grid(row=0,column=1,padx=5)


sea=Button(frame1,text="Search",command=new_lyrics)
sea.grid(row=0,column=2,padx=2)


frame2=Frame(root)
myscroll2=Scrollbar(frame2,orient=HORIZONTAL)
myscroll=Scrollbar(frame2,orient=VERTICAL)
songbox=Listbox(frame2,width=70,height=30,borderwidth=0,bg="#fce303",fg="black",yscrollcommand=myscroll.set,font=("arial",13),xscrollcommand=myscroll2.set)
myscroll.config(command=songbox.yview)
myscroll2.config(command=songbox.xview)
myscroll.pack(side=RIGHT,fill=Y)
myscroll2.pack(side=BOTTOM,fill=X)
songbox.pack()

frame2.grid(row=1,column=0,pady=10)

removebtn=Button(frame1,text="Clear",command=rem)
save=Button(frame1,text="Save",command=sa)
frame1.grid(row=0,column=0)
root.mainloop()
