We love APIs...

... So we decided to build one of our own!

Get started »


First things first. You'll need an API key so we know who you are when you are making requests to our API.

Let's get an API key!


If you write your own client in some language or the other and open source it, we would really like to know! Send us a line on Twitter or use the contact form

Get songs

Using our API you can get lyrics with chords, create your own song collections and download them as printable PDFs (coming soon).

Start hacking

All you need to start hacking is to sign up and get an API key!

Be nice

We will ask you to be nice to our API and please don't abuse it! We have a throttle which limits all regular users to 150 requests/hour.
