How to Display Lyrics for Songs in iOS 7

However, in iOS 7, you have to access them instead of them automatically displaying. Fortunately, this is not difficult. All you have to do is tap on the graphic image displayed while the song is playing (usually the album cover), and it will bring up the lyrics.
