Automatically add lyrics to the entire iTunes Library

You have to have caching enabled, I think.

Automatically add lyrics to the entire iTunes Library

Thanks.
Caching is enabled from the application menu, and "Listen to iTunes" and "Copy lyrics to iTunes" are also checked. Then, I selected "File->Cache Lyrics for Playlist->Library", and let it do it's thing.
Later last night, I told it to cache lyrics for a smaller playlist, with 200 songs, and it went through very quickly, saying it had found many of them in the local cache, but the lyrics are still not added to the songs' "Lyrics" tab. I have manually added lyrics to a number of songs successfully, and tried using ID3X to do it, mostly to see if any other app could (it worked), so the problem exists between me and pearLyrics.

The itunes program must be running while you cache lyrics for playlist.
had the same problem.
the cache seems to belong to the pearLyrics program, so the lyrics first go in the cache and are then automatically copied to itunes (which must be open)
