But, what if you scroll up, but the verses doesn’t just show up in Spotify? Though this can be just a normal thing considering some older/less popular songs doesn’t have the integrated lyrics feature. But, if you can’t see any verses with none of the songs you like, this is a real problem.

As we have mentioned in the beginning, some songs doesn’t have lyrics attached to them. This is mainly true for less popular songs or songs of a less-spoken language.
