    To add a few caveats to my former opinion, I do prefer music as a backdrop, since I have a hard time discerning lyrics for the most part anyway. However, I find that good lyrics can enrichen very much a song. And you can sing it quietly too, which is always a plus when you're bored.

    I like singing along. Bad lyrics completely ruin songs for me

    I generally just listen to the music. Of course I hear the lyrics but I tend not to separate them and music can't speak to me unless I hear it as a whole. Although sometimes there are parts to a song that shine more than others, I have to admit.

    It's basically a balance. Sometimes the notes tell me more than the words, other times the words complete the note. It's about synergy.
    'One of (Lucas) Cranach's masterpieces, discussed by (Joseph) Koerner, is in it's self-referentiality the perfect expression of left-hemisphere emptiness and a precursor of post-modernism. There is no longer anything to point to beyond, nothing Other, so it points pointlessly to itself.' - Iain McGilChrist

    Yep, same with me. If the lyrics are good, I'd not tune them out as I would with bad lyrics.. where I just try and focus on the music.

    Terrible lyrics are the trainwreck in an otherwise well-oiled system. I can't help but pay attention to them. They draw my focus and I throw my hands up in the air (but in a way that connotes that I actually do care)

    Typically both, although if I can't understand the lyrics due to singing style or language it's not really an issue. The music is most important.

    I focus much more on the music than the lyrics. If a few isolated lyrics catch my attention and pique my curiosity, I look them up, but otherwise, I find it more enjoyable just to listen to the music and the beat.
