Send the lyrics of the playing or selected track(s) to TextEdit

This script copies the lyrics from the Lyrics tag--if they exist--of the currently playing track, or if no track is playing, the selected track(s), to a new TextEdit document. Requires iTunes 5 or better.

(Note: In order to launch this PowerPC-era script on an Intel machine, it must first be opened and then saved using AppleScript Editor, which is located in your /Applications/Utilities/ folder. More information is here.)
