iChat has an option to display 'Current iTunes Song' in place of your status message.

My idea goes further and allows display of the current song's lyrics, as if it were a karaoke display, but the outside world only gets to see the lyrics, not hear the choon as you do.

       This would be great for getting responses while I'm listening to Nine Inch Nails [+]

       Wouldn't the lyrics have to go zipping by awfully fast to keep up with the song?

       You could bake this idea, if you dabbled in some kind of karaoke programme.
