[ddots-l] Re: question about lyrics

Um, it might be a obvious answer, but why don't you create verse 1 for each part, and copy paste them 3 or 4 times depending on how many verses there are.
Then you can just edit the notes that are different.
Lastly, you write out the lyrics over them. Also you can write the lyrics just for one part and copy paste just the lyrics to the other voices if all the voices have same rhythmic figures. I doubt that all the voices have same rhythmic figures through out all the verses though. It'd be boring.

Sarah:
If the words and notes chnge every time, you won't be writing as verse 1,
verse 2, etc. You're going to need to just write the whole thing out.

OK, this might seem stupid but I'll ask anyway. I know to hit enter after
the first set of lyrics, but what if the notes on the moving parts are
different every time? This is not your conventional hymn. Thanks.
